D-Chiro-inositol increases the action of insulin in patients with the polycystic ovary syndrome, thereby improving ovulatory function and decreasing serum androgen concentrations, blood pressure, and plasma triglyceride concentrations.”

This is the exciting conclusion reached by Dr Nestler and his team of researchers.

108 g packets are available at a 10% discount for $162.  This is enough for 90 days or 3 months at 1200 mg a day. This is equal to $27 AUD per 18 grams.

216 g packets are available at a 16% discount for $299.  This is enough for 180 days or 6 months at 1200 mg a day.  This is equal to only $24.91 AUD per 18 grams!

The expiry date of current stock is July 2020.

“It has been demonstrated that PCOS women who received DCI enjoyed lower free and total cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, increased insulin sensitivity, and a higher frequency of ovulation.

Furthermore, DCI administration in PCOS women seems to improve BMI (body mass index), WHR (waist-hip ratio) and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, hence improving the overall physical health of the patient.”

    I’ve been feeling really great on the DCI, it’s only been 10 days but hopefully it will continue.

    I’ve been eating a fairly healthy, no processed carbs style diet, having eggs & spinach for breakfast, trying to eat green beans instead of potato etc for about a year, which I have been feeling the benefits of, but only lose weight very slowly on it.

    However since taking the DCI (and not changing the diet) I’ve lost 4lbs and have more energy.

    Thank your for all the information. It took me a week to properly read through all the info you sent with my order, but it was really interesting and I am hopeful that the results I have been seeing will continue and I will see the same benefits as the women in the studies.

  • Anne

    I’ve been taking DCI for over 4 years now.

    For the 4 years before I started taking DCI I would put on 5 kgs each year no matter what I did.

    Prior to that I’d been a healthy weight with very mild symptoms, but when my doctor put me on metformin it appeared to trigger some sort of reaction that brought out the monster in PCOS.

    The year I started taking it, my weight stayed the same, then I started losing weight. I’ve now lost 12 kg in total and my menstrual cycle, which hadn’t shown up for nearly 4 years returned 4 weeks to the day after I started taking DCI and has returned to being semi-regular ever since.

    I urge anyone battling with PCOS, wondering why their healthy diet, regular exercise and general virtuous living isn’t doing the trick, to give it a go. It’s really changed my life and given me back control over my health again.

  • Sal

    Thank you Anne for all your help and information about DCI.

    I’ve been taking it for 4 months now and since have noticed a dramatic improvement in my energy levels and mood. I’ve also started having regular menstrual cycles, reduction in scalp hair loss and have halved the amount of metformin I am taking.

    I must say that DCI has really changed with way I manage my PCOS symptoms. I really encourage any woman with PCOS who is thinking about trialling it, to give it a go. It has been my only success story after trying so many other alternatives.

  • Shan

    Just a quick question, I am taking Lorna Vanderhaeghes glucosmart
    Would that be the same as what you are talking about? It says it has 600
    mg of dci
    Thank you in advance

  • My PCOS Info

    1′m so glad to hear that Sal.

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Shannon,

    Yes, Lorna Vanderhaeghes Glucosmart product is the same thing – just a LOT more expensive. You can buy DcI more cheaply here if you wish.

    Glucosmart contains 30 x 600 mg capsules for $59.99. This is 18,000 milligrams or 18 grams (30 x 600 = 18000)

    D-chiro inositol powder is available through My PCOS Info Shop for just $30 for 18 grams (the same quantity as in Glucosmart), saving you 50% in comparison.

  • Amber

    Is this OK to take with vitex or maca?

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Amber, Yes it is.

  • Anna

    Hello, thank you for all the information you share about PCOS, they’re very helpful. I just have one question … why do not you post to Italy? I am Italian, I was diagnosed with PCOS about six years ago, and I was thinking to give DCI a try, as with diet alone, the results are very erratic (and unsatisfactory).
    Could you consider to include Italy in your list?

  • I have pcos and i am not mentrating and want to convieve.

  • I haven’t use the product yet but i want to try it.

  • Sophia

    Do you sell this as a powder? If it is a capsule is it vegetarian?
    How much of it should we take a day? Thank you!

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Sophia,
    Yes, it is just the pure powder, refined to greater than 95% purity according to the laboratory certificate of analysis. It is completely free of animal products. The recommended dose is 20 mg per kg of bodyweight per day. For a woman weighing 60 kg or 132 lb this would be 1200 mg. If you have any other questions, please let me know, I’m here to help.

  • Tia Ng


    I am from Malaysia and have just sent an email to you. I have been looking online for DCI and mostly either do not sent to Malaysia or way too expensive. I see countries like Thailand and Singapore but I am not sure why Malaysia (which is an hour from Singapore or Thai) is never in the list. Is it because of the custom here? I desperately need to buy DCI and get my PCOS under control. HELP!

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Tia,
    I have just replied to your email, but in case the answer helps anyone else, I have a couple of customers who order from Malaysia and there have never been any problems. Some nutritional supplements require the person receiving them to obtain an import license, but this has not been the case with DCI. If you have any more questions, please let me know. I’m here to help.

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Anna,

    I do post to Italy, I actually have several customers there already. I will update the webpage. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Kind regards,

  • Hi, my daughter has PCOS and I wanted to order DCI but I am not quite sure how much she should take and I see that it is in grams. Is this a powder form and do they sell this in pill form? Your help is greatly appreciated.


  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Michelle,

    The recommended dose is 20 mg per kg of bodyweight. For this reason the powder form is more easily and accurately measured with the included 100 mg scoop. It has a very pleasant taste, quite similar to sugar, and can either be taken directly on the tongue or stirred into a glass of water, in which case it is completely tasteless and odourless.

    For every 5kg your daughter weighs, she would therefore take 1 scoop of DCI powder each day.

    To convert weight in pounds to kilograms, divide your weight in pounds by 2.2. There is also an online tool you can use here:

    If you require help in converting lbs or stone to kg please let me know.

  • Shree

    Hi, I am diagnosed with PCOS 9 years ago and ever since been battling with weight loss and irregular cycles. I’m on metformin, exercise 3x a week and nothing in improving.

  • My PCOS Info

    Hi Shree,

    Yes we do ship to Malaysia. You can order from: D Chiro Inositol

    Please let me know if I can assist you further. I’m here to help.

    Warm regards,
