Cinnamon is Called Able to Increase Mother’s Fertility with PCOS

Jakarta – Mother must be familiar with the kitchen spice called cinnamon, yes. Cinnamon has long been used to add flavor to both sweet and savory foods.

It turns out that not only as a kitchen spice, a study shows that this type of spice can also help launch the menstrual cycle, you know, it is even said to speed up pregnancy. Check out the explanation.

Researchers from Columbia University Medical Center in New York City found women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) who took a daily cinnamon supplement experienced nearly two menstrual cycles over a six-month period than women with the same syndrome who were given an inactive placebo. Two of the women in the treated group reported spontaneous pregnancies during the trial.

“There is a lot of interest in homeopathic or natural remedies for this condition,” says Dr. Daniel Kort, study author and postdoctoral fellow in reproductive endocrinology at the medical center Web MD. “This may be something we can do using a completely natural substance that can help a large group of patients.”

PCOS, which involves many body systems, is thought to be caused by an insensitivity to the hormone insulin, Mother. Typical symptoms include menstrual irregularities, infertility, acne, excess facial or body hair growth, and thinning of scalp hair.

Dr. Kort also said it’s not clear exactly how cinnamon might help regulate the menstrual cycle in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Of the 16 patients who completed the trial, 11 patients were given a cinnamon supplement of 1,500 mg daily and five patients were given a placebo pill. Diet and activity levels were monitored, and patients completed monthly menstrual cycles.

After six months, the women who received the cinnamon experienced a significant improvement in menstrual cycle regularity, having an average of nearly four menstrual periods during that time when compared to an average of 2.2 periods among the placebo group.

Two women reported spontaneous pregnancies after three months of cinnamon treatment, meaning they conceived without additional help from the mother.

“Polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the most common reasons why women don’t have regular menstrual cycles. But the results of this study give them hope to have children,” he added.
