Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of six weeks of combined exercises with supplementation of cinnamon on glucose, insulin and fat mass in women with PCOS.
Materials and Methods: 40 women with mean age of 24.15 ± 2.64 and BMI of 27.95 ± 1.28 were randomly assigned into 4 groups (exercise, exercise-supplement, supplement, control). Exercise-supplementation and exercise group performed 6 weeks and 3 sessions each week with intensity 50 to 75% of  maximal  heart  rate for 50 to 85 minutes of training. The pre-and post-period levels of insulin, fasting glucose and fat mass were evaluated. Statistical analysis was performed by means of covariance test and correlated t-test at a significance level of P≤0.05.
Findings: Insulin and glucose levels of post-test of the supplementation group significantly decreased (P<0.05) compared to the pre-test and post-test of the other three groups. Cinnamon intake with exercise was not effective on fat mass (P≤0.05).
Conclusion: The results indicated that insulin and glucose levels were improved after cinnamon training.  Reducing insulin and blood glucose levels by improving androgen and insulin resistance can help improve the menstrual cycle.
