Effect of Cinnamon Extract on Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

2014-08-27 03:19:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Cinnamon from the Cassae Plant is effective in the body as insulin could lower blood sugar levels.

Description

Insulin resistance is a condition in which body cells do not fully respond to the action of insulin, a hormone that controls the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood. As a result, blood sugar levels become abnormally high. Insulin resistance is common in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This study involves the administration of a nutritional supplement (cinnamon extract). The cinnamon extract like regular cinnamon powder comes from the bark of Cinnamon Cassae plant. It is believed that cinnamon may act in the same way as insulin and therefore could potentially improve insulin resistance and help to lower blood sugar (glucose) levels.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.

A plant genus of the family POACEAE that is the source of wheat grain. A hybrid with rye (SECALE CEREALE) is called TRITICALE. The seed is ground into FLOUR and used to make BREAD, and is the source of WHEAT GERM AGGLUTININS.

Ground up seed of WHEAT.

A condition caused by the excessive secretion of ANDROGENS from the ADRENAL CORTEX; the OVARIES; or the TESTES. The clinical significance in males is negligible. In women, the common manifestations are HIRSUTISM and VIRILISM as seen in patients with POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME and ADRENOCORTICAL HYPERFUNCTION.

Allergic reaction to wheat that is triggered by the immune system.
