The Insulite PCOS System is considered to be the finest in the world and many of our clients have experienced remarkable results, some in a very short timeframe. However, we want to set realistic expectations and give you a feel for how the process works over time. The following are general guidelines to help you understand common conditions and time frames for improvements. Please remember that each one of us has a unique genetic makeup so there will be variations in each individual’s response times. The information below is based upon feedback from women who have faithfully implemented all Five elements of the Insulite PCOS System.
PCOS Symptoms & Change
Women on the Insulite PCOS System report that their hormone levels start to balance out in 1-5 months : These women report the five elements of the Insulite PCOS System – the Nutritional Supplement Element, Food as Health Element, Movement as Health Element, Insulite Awareness Element and the Insulite Support Element together – help them to make changes at the cellular level they have not been able to make or sustain before.
They find that:
- Insulin and glucose levels start to drop.
- Other hormone levels start to balance out, for example, levels of testosterone and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) are getting lower; progesterone and estrogen are returning to an optimal balance. As you will see below this can translate into the menses resuming soon, and might cause some initial ‘water’ weight gain and PMS-like symptoms, especially if it has been a while since your last period.

Better energy: Many of our clients report increased energy as early as the end of the first month after starting the Insulite PCOS System. This is an indication that your hormone levels are being better managed. Less fatigue has also been mentioned by our users.
Changes taking place on a cellular level:
- Insulin and glucose levels are starting to drop.
- Other hormone levels are starting to balance out, for example, levels of testosterone and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) are getting lower; progesterone and estrogen are returning to an optimal balance. As insulin and glucose levels lower and other hormones move toward balance you lay the foundation to better manage PCOS symptoms like hair loss/growth, fatigue, skin problems, infertility, mood swings, and weight gain.
- The body is detoxifying and excreting toxins.
An improved sense of wellbeing is reported early on by many women on the Insulite PCOS system. This is an indication that small changes in your diet and daily movement are having a positive effect on your psychology. In addition, most women are also receiving better level of nutrients through their food and the Insulite dietary supplements, which also enhances their sense of wellbeing and completeness.
Resumption of Your Menstrual Periods is usually a fairly early sign of a positive response to the Insulite PCOS System, as is spotting which can indicate that hormone levels are starting to balance out.
Initial weight loss is one indication the Insulite PCOS System is working for you.
Initial water weight gain is less common than weight loss, but it can also indicate the Insulite PCOS System is working, particularly if it has been a while since your last period.
Weight Loss: Depending on the amount of weight you want to lose, this time frame can be very satisfying in notifying you of the cumulative effect of slow and steady improvement that is occurring as you continue to stay on the Insulite PCOS System.
Skin tags (Acrochordons): These are benign growths that appear as small pieces of “hanging” skin; there is a link between skin tags and Insulin Resistance. Once Insulin Resistance is addressed, we would expect that the formation of skin tags would be reduced. Some of the smaller tags can simply fall off, if not we recommend they be removed by a doctor.
Hair loss (androgenic alopecia): Androgen levels need to be reduced for this symptom to change. We generally see changes within 6-9 months. Some clients report new hair growth takes longer. In cases where other PCOS symptoms are resolving, our Advisory Team recommends an evaluation to rule out other reasons for hair loss.
Facial hair: Although some women experience changes earlier in the cycle, this is a symptom that often can take 6-12 months for you to see more definitive changes.
And other body hair: As is the case with facial hair, noticeable changes often occur in 6-12 months.
Lack of Ovulation is a challenging symptom. The Insulite PCOS System aims to help in regulating and normalizing each woman’s cycle. However, for women who do not ovulate, there could be health issues beyond PCOS that can be inhibiting their bodies from responding. Although results do occur earlier in many women, it is common for change to occur within 6-12 months.
Acanthosis nigricans is the development of thick dark, “velvety” skin. This condition is caused by an imbalance in hormones, especially insulin. While this condition can result in a permanent skin change, we have had many women report that the dark ring and thickening skin around the neck, under the breasts, underarms, knees, elbows, and groin begins to decrease and completely resolves when their Insulin Resistance is successfully addressed. Since this symptom varies for each woman, the timeframe for noticeable improvement can vary, depending on how long your skin changes have been present. We have seen this change for women in as little as 2-3 months, but it can take as long as 6-12 months.
When women ask us about the effect of the Insulite PCOS System on acanthosis nigricans, we explain that the skin cells (melanocytes) that currently exist with this condition will not change. This is due to the fact that reversing Insulin Resistance and balancing the hormones are not going to transform those particular, existing skin cells. There are some topical prescriptions that can have some positive effect and exfoliating can help shed cells so a lightening of skin is visible.
Over time, as one’s hormones balance, the new skin cells should be lighter. This is one of the last symptoms to improve, but it can improve!
Ongoing improvements remain individualized during this period, based on personal health objectives. To maintain the changes you achieve from the Insulite PCOS System, we strongly recommend that you maintain some level of the Nutritional Supplement Element, the Food as Health Element, and the Movement as Health Element of the Insulite PCOS System.
To improve your results, we also suggest you stay in close contact with our team in the private support group – the Insulite Support Element – who will continue to provide free and enthusiastic support and guidance on diet, exercise, lifestyle, and Nutritional supplement needs.
When Am I Finished With the Insulite PCOS System?
We often hear “My condition has really improved; when am I finished with the System?” First, we encourage you to continue the nutrition, exercise, and awareness elements you have incorporated into your life. These will serve to continually support your feelings of health and well being. We also believe the balanced nutritional support you receive from the Insulite Nutritional Supplements are, at a minimum, insurance that you will continue to receive vital nutrients that are difficult to consistently obtain, even with a healthy diet.
By maintaining the healthy balance you greatly reduce your risk of reverting to the state of health that brought you here in the first place. And you can avoid many potential health issues later in life and the physical and emotional pain that accompany them. We truly wish to see you have a joyful life.
The Above Are General Guidelines
It’s important to remember that each individual woman is unique, and therefore, the timeframe, number, and the level of health improvements can vary from one woman to the next. These differences are the result of a number of factors including heredity, lifestyle, and severity of your condition, as well as compliance in following the five key elements of the Insulite PCOS System.
