    Can you please tell me if the DCI you sell is sugar free? Any added sweeteners?

    Thanks

    • My PCOS Info says:

      The DCI is 100% pure – it is only DCI. No sugar, no sweeteners. The DCI is itself sweet tasting and has a similar chemical structure to sugar, but a very different physiological effect.

    1. Any progress yet on a measuring scoop to do approx. 600mg of the powder?

    2. Are you absolutely certain that shipping to the UK still works? I notice that Chiral Balance (US) do not currently offer shipping to the UK.

    Thanks & regards

      1. Each initial order is supplied with a scoop which measures out 100 mg. If you want to measure out 600 mg I would suggest using a 1/8 teaspoon measure (which is equal to 500 mg of DCI) plus one of the 100 mg scoops. I have no intention to obtain a 600 mg scoop as this would not offer the majority of women the degree of dose accuracy required. 600 mg is for most quite an arbitrary amount. Most of my customers take a dose which is customised to their own situation, taking into consideration factors such as weight, activity levels, carbohydrate intake, other medications or insulin sensitising foods, herbs or vitamins.

      2. Yes, I am still shipping to the UK several times a week without any problems at all.

    Can you tell me what your DCI is extracted from and where the product is manufactured? Are any of the ingredients gotten from outside the U.S.?
    Thanks.

    • My PCOS Info says:

      The DCI is extracted from the juice of carob pods. To the best of my knowledge, there is no commercial DCI manufactured in the US.

      I am based in Australia and the DCI is manufactured by Amicogen in South Korea to US FDA standards, so all of the process and ingredients are from outside the US.

    would love to sort this all out! yr blog is awesome, thankyou so much

    • My PCOS Info says:

      This DCI is extracted from the juice of carob pods. It is quite likely identical to Lorna Vanderhaeghe’s product, in that there are very few commercial DCI manufacturers in the world and most DCI is sourced from the same manufacturing chemist.

      Thank you for your kind comments about my blog – I love to hear that it is making a difference to people!

      With respect to the hirsutism, you might like to look into Saw Palmetto and Spearmint

      Please let me know if you have any more questions. I’m here to help!

      All the best,

    Can you please tell me how your DCI compares with the commercially available ones in regards to price and dosage. I am looking for the most econoimcal way to buy, but also the easiest to administer. Capsules seem easier than scoops! Thanks.

    • My PCOS Info says:

      Hi Sam,

      There are only two commercial manufacturers of DCI in the world, to the best of my knowledge (not including those who manufacture exceptionally pure DCI for the scientific studies). So all retailers of DCI are just on-selling one of those two products.

      Personally, I find the powder simpler than capsules because a) I already take enough capsules/tablets and don’t want to take any more and b) I can just tip my day’s dose into my water bottle and sip it throughout the day, so I get the dose spread throughout the day without any extra effort. As DCI is water soluble and quickly excreted by the body, this is more effective.

      My DCI is guaranteed to be the most economical DCI in the world. If you find genuine DCI cheaper somewhere else, I’ll beat the price by 10%.

      If you have any more questions, please let me know.

      Kind regards,

      Anne

    Hi I have a question I am really confused, I have PCOS and my husband and I have been TTC our second child for 8 years now! I have recently learned about DCI. I am in the UK and want to try to take DCI going on what I have read, I cant find it anywhere (I can find plain inositol or Choline Inositol is this is the same?? If not how can I purchase the correct item? How much is it? I drink quite a lot of tea/coffee and I am reading that I need to stop that ASAP because coffee cancels the Inositol is that correct? I really appreciate any help that you can give me

    • My PCOS Info says:

      Hi Kelly,

      You can buy DCI from My PCOS Info: http://www.mypcos.info/1/shop/dci-d-chiro-inositol/

      It is different to myo-inositol. They are both inositol isomers but they have slightly different effects in the body.

      There are many reasons to limit your consumption of caffeine, the most important of which is that it decreases insulin sensitivity, thus making PCOS worse.

      It is true that caffeine can inactivate the myo-inositol isomer, however, the biochemistry of this interaction in vivo means that whilst that statement is technically correct, in practice it is not that simple. The odd tea or coffee is not going to deplete your body of inositol.

      I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please let me know.

      Kind regards,

      Anne

    Hello I am in New Zealand, Can you tell me why DCI is not available over the counter, or via prescription for the treatment of pcos?

    • My PCOS Info says:

      Hi Rebecca,

      There aren’t any companies who have produced it that way. It was originally intended to be a prescription treatment for PCOS, by the company who did the initial research into it – Insmed. They called it INS-1 if you want to google it. They successfully made it through Phase I & II trials then decided not to pursue taking it to market for ‘commercial reasons’.

      If DCI were to be available over the counter (and there are a few websites in America who sell it) it would be twice the price again. It’s a very expensive supplement and if you add further tiers into the distribution model, you need to increase the price. I import it directly, so there’s no middle-man wanting a cut. I expect that supplement companies have deemed it to be uneconomical to bring to the retail market in health food shops and chemists.

      Another factor may be the lack of general awareness of DCI in the community. People may not know what it is and to look for it perhaps.

      Anyway, that’s all just conjecture. The fact of the matter is, that it’s only available via a few websites worldwide for whatever reason. If you would like to buy DCI from my website, it’s available at

      If you have any more questions, please let me know. I’m here to help.

      Kind regards,

      Anne
