Can cinnamon powder induce a miscarriage?

The answer is yes, taking cinnamon powder can induce miscarriage in fact it is one of the natural herb that is contraindicated for pregnant women because of its abortificient properties. Excessive amounts of cinnamon powder stimulates uterine contraction which induces premature labor or miscarriage and there are also other countries that uses cinnamon as a form of birth control method. According to some research, cinnamon powder has a coumarin compound which is toxic to the liver and has a rodenticide properties (which is a poisonous substance to rats). They also found out that in one kilogram cinnamon powder has about 2100 to 4400 mg of the toxic compound coumarin which means that in one teaspoon powder of cinnamon approximately contains 5.8 to 12.1 mg of coumarin. Moreover, cinnamon powder if taken excessively also causes allergic reactions, diarrhea, gastritis and depresses the central nervous system to some people. If you are pregnant, I recommend to avoid taking cinnamon powder or oil as it may put your pregnancy at risk for premature labor or miscarriage.

Limit the amount of carbohydrates you eat in a meal by adding vegetables to half of your dinner plate, leaving the other half for your protein and carbohydrates.

I have irregular periods and underwent ectopic pregnancy surgery 18 months ago, tried many medicines to conceive, yet because of hormonal imbalance unable to conceive, I am 32 years old

Yes, you want to take the cinnamon daily through the entire cycle to aid in regulating your hormones. Monitor your ovulation using an Ovulation Prediction Kit which are available in pharmacies as well as some dollar stores. Take Vitex as well throughout your cycle to boost your ovulation. If your ovary was damaged just keep in mind that it may take several cycles to conceive because you are only ovulating when your one functioning ovary releases an egg. This could happen every cycle or every other.

How can I tell the difference between cassia cinnamon and true cinnamon when I buy it in the store?

How do I know I am not buying cassia when there is so little labeling on spices?. I have tried: Shopping in bulk food stores for cinnamon, shopping in specialty spice stores and shopping for cinnamon in the spice aisle of the grocery store.

There is not a dramatic difference between Cassia Cinnamon and Ceylon Cinnamon. They are both from the same plant and carry the same healing and taste properties. What you should be looking for is how old the cinnamon spice is. Spices have a short shelf life and the fresher the spice, the better the taste or effectiveness. You can also purchase cinnamon sticks or bark and grate it at home.

Hello sir, I am suffering from PCOS, so please tell me how much cinnamon is effective for me?

I am suffering from PCOS.. please suggest how much cinnamon is effective for me?

Those of us with PCOS mimic Type 2 diabetes in terms of our hormonal balance and insulin resistance. Cinnamon can regulate your cycle so that you have regular cycles of menstrual flow as well as predicted ovulation. It also can help you lose weight because it will regulate your hormones like Cortisol which are higher in women with PCOS than normal levels.

You will want to take 3 capsules of a cinnamon extract,112 milligrams per capsule, daily to reduce your PCOS symptoms. This is equivalent to around 4 grams of the Cinnamon spice. It is better to use in capsule form as, by the time you buy the spice in the grocery store, the potency is reduced dramatically. You can also add one teaspoon of the spice to a tea before you eat foods that are high in white starches. One of the best teas for PCOS is to combine the one teaspoon of cinnamon with Rooibos tea.

The morning after pill can delay a period for more than a week. The only way to know for sure will be to take a pregnancy test but the results should be negative. If you have not started your period after two more weeks then you should seek the advice of a medical professional to see if your hormones are now in fluctuation and this is causing the delay. Something they do not tell you when you get this pill is that your menstrual cycle could change drastically over the course of several months.
