6 Reasons To Take Cinnamon For Hormonal Balance

Energy, fertility, sleep, appetite (and more) are all controlled by a fine-tuned system of hormones, which is why imbalances and fluctuations can trigger all kinds of symptoms.

1. Burns stubborn belly fat and aids weight loss

Belly fat is a sign of an over-production of insulin, which takes excess sugar out of the blood and stores it in fat cells - predominantly on the abdomen.

Cinnamon increases sensitivity to insulin and a study from 2017 found that taking 3g (1tsp) per day resulted in significant decreases in waist circumference compared with the placebo group (Lipids in Health and Disease).

2. Stops mood swings by reducing insulin surges

Mood swings can happen when large surges of insulin remove so much sugar from the blood that energy dips dramatically.

Cinnamon can help reduce sugar levels after eating (Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism, 2009), reducing over-production of insulin and the resultant moodiness!

3. Eases period cramps and heavy flow

Period cramps and heavy flow have been found to significantly reduce in women taking Cinnamon vs a placebo in a study published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (2015).

4. Helps regulate periods and ovulation

Periods and ovulation can become irregular or disappear when hormones are imbalanced, for instance with polycystic ovary syndrome.

A study from 2014 found that PCOS sufferers who consumed Cinnamon had more frequent menstrual cycles and regular ovulation compared with women taking a placebo (American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology).⁠

5. Combats hormonal skin flare-ups

Skin flare-ups are often a result of hormonal fluctuations and an overreaction of the immune system, which Cinnamon’s powerful phytonutrients can calm down, helping to clear up redness and breakouts.

6. Stabilises blood sugar to lower stress hormones

The stress hormone cortisol is released when blood sugar levels get too low (for instance after a big insulin surge). Keep levels steady with 1 serving Organic Burst Cinnamon with meals to avoid further hormonal imbalance.

☝️Remember, Not all Cinnamon is Created Equal

The majority of Cinnamon products sold are Cassia ("Chinese Cinnamon"), a cheaper and less effective option that contains a harmful compound called coumarin.

Ours is True Cinnamon, organically certified and sourced directly from the Ratnapura region of Sri Lanka.
