Cinnamon: effectively reduced pain compared to placebo in a study on severe menstrual pain. It also decreased the volume of menstrual blood and nausea during the period.Every ingredient we use is research backed. We found more than 1,908 studies on Cinnamon — here's what matters:
- In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial, university students were given either cinnamon, ibuprofen, or a placebo to address severe menstrual pain. Cinnamon was demonstrated to have a pain relieving effect compared to placebo, but was slightly less effective than ibuprofen. Pain the cinnamon group was reduced from a 7/10 to less than 2/10 during the course of treatment.
- In addition to effectively reducing pain when compared to placebo, in a separate trial, cinnamon also reduced the volume of menstrual bleeding, as well as nausea and vomiting during the period.
