During the last stage of the menstrual cycle, normally a layer of endometriosis lining on the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood, instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body to cause endometriosis. Endometriosis also react to hormone signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, by building and breaking up tissues and eliminating them through menstrual period.
Cinnamon is an evergreen tree about 32.8–49.2 feet tall, belonging to the family lauraceara. It is famous in treating diabetes by balancing the levels of insulin in the bloodstream and regulating the pancreas in production of insulin(516)(517).
Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that not only helps to strengthen the immune system in fighting against forming of endometrial implants and adhesion(520), virus and bacteria invasion(519), it also helps to reduce blood flow during menstruation.
Through its antioxidant effects, cinnamon also balances the production of reactive oxygen and readily detoxify the reactive intermediates(518) caused by environmental toxins resulting in strengthening the immune system's ability to fight against the forming of free radicals and endometriosis.
2. Digestive system(523)(524)
Cinnamon helps to improve the digestive absorption, which is essential for women with endometriosis because most of them are found to have low levels of vital vitamins and minerals during menstrual cycle due to low levels of stomach acid.
3. Essential oil for menstrual pain
Cinnamon contains caryophyllene(525), a natural bicyclic sesquiterpene that is a constituent of many essential oils. It helps to relieve menstrual cramp by putting it on the abdominal region then massage it until the oil is completely absorbed into the skin(525).
4. Food and sugar craving
Besides stimulating the on and off of insulin production by pancreas depending to the levels of insulin in the bloodstream(526), it helps to treat the food and sugar craving caused by over production of insulin(527)(528) during menstrual cycle for some women with endometriosis(529).
5. Immune system
Cinnamon contain antimicrobial properties(519). It helps to strengthen the immune system in fighting against any inflammation and infection(521)(522).
