exercise benefits for women with pcos

Boost Insulin Sensitivity
Regular cardio exercise and strength training has been shown to help your body respond better to insulin, lowering your risk for diabetes and other complications.

Lower Cholesterol
Women with PCOS are more likely to have high cholesterol and triglycerides. This can also contribute to other complications like metabolic syndrome, which is also more prevalent in women with PCOS. Exercising can help reduce your cholesterol when combined with a healthy, low-fat diet.

Increase endorphins
Women with PCOS are more likely to develop symptoms of depression. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which are hormones that promote feelings of wellness. This can help you manage stress and alleviate some symptoms of depression.
