Trying to conceive? Cinnamon could help!

Add some spice back into baby making. The food kind we mean. Women struggling to conceive due to PCOS may have an unlikely new ally, cinnamon.

PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome affects up to 21 per cent of Aussie women of a reproductive age, with one of the main difficulties faced by those with the condition being lowered fertility.

Research by Columbia University found women who ate cinnamon regularly over a six month trial had 1.62 more menstrual cycles than those who didn’t.

While only a small improvement, it’s just another tick for cinnamon, which also can assist in a range of health problems such as the regulation of blood sugar.
