Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrinopathy in reproductive-aged women affecting up to 15% of the population and exhibiting ovulatory dysfunction, hyperandrogenism, obesity, and insulin resistance. Phytochemical like phytoestrogen helps alleviate the symptoms of PCOS without any adverse effects such as improvement in ovulation and regulation of blood glucose. Therefore, this study has developed a supplement enriched with phytoestrogen. Aim: The study was aimed at developing a phytoestrogen-rich supplement. Methods: The supplement was prepared under proper hygienic conditions. Organoleptic evaluation was done by a group of panel members. Microbial activity and nutrient composition were analyzed by standard methods such as mass spectrometry and high-performance liquid chromatography. Statistical analysis was done by Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software version 21. Result: The formulated supplement was statistically significant (P < 0.05). The microbial analysis showed that it was microbe free at the end of 30 days. The nutrient analysis concluded that phytoestrogens such as polyphenols and flavonoids, omega-3 fatty acid, irons, and fiber were present in adequate amounts. Conclusion: The present study revealed that the developed supplement is found to be rich in phytoestrogens and it can be effective for the treatment of PCOS.
