Why to reduce stimulants in PCOS

It is important to reduce stimulants. Stimulants may trigger the release of stress hormone cortisol, so causing your blood sugar and insulin to rise and then triggering further testosterone production by the ovaries. This means reducing or preferably avoiding completely normal tea/coffee, caffeinated soft drinks, energy drinks, sweets, chocolate, biscuits and cakes and alcoholic drinks. Instead, you can drink herbal teas and decaffeinated coffees, sparkling and still water.
