How Myophage Tablet works

Myophage Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Metformin and myoinositol which treat polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in females. Metformin is an antidiabetic medicine which helps regulate hormones in PCOS by balancing insulin levels. This effect leads to more regular menstruation and ovulation cycles. Myo inositol is a naturally occurring messenger which ensures proper binding of insulin to its receptors and regulates the signaling that follows the binding process. Like this, it improves body’s response to insulin, and improves hormone balance.
