A study conducted at Columbia University in New York, came to a conclusion that women with polycystic ovaries, which consumed the spice every day, rebalanced their menstrual cycle within six months than those who took placebo. Some of them also became pregnant during this period.
“Scientists have long been trying to find a natural or homeopathic medicine for polycystic ovarian syndrome”, said the author of the research Dr. Daniel Kort, and added: “With this research we found that a seemingly simple spice can be a solution for women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome.”
It is estimated that 5-10% of women worldwide suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome. In America that number is estimated at 5 million. The symptoms of this syndrome are irregular periods, infertility, as well as acne and hair growth on the face.
Scientists believe that cinnamon, except for polycystic ovaries, can affect the body so as to improve the body’s ability to process glucose and insulin.
In China, Japan and Far East countries, women who are unable to stay pregnant consume cinnamon powder with half a teaspoon of honey and add it to chewing gum so that they can consume a little bit of it all day. If you don’t prefer this way, simply rub this mixture over your gums several times a day.
