Quoting NBDickinson:Cinnamon assists with keeping the blood sugar level within normal limits. When the BSL is within normal limits, it will help turn food into energy as it's supposed to. Not turn it into stored fat as it does when it's off the hook. Vitex basically assists with regulating the female hormones. Keeping the cycles regular and possibly inducing ovulation. I was doing that for awhile but was out back on Metformin, but still take cinnamon once or twice a day. I also take Tri-Chromium once a day. If you would like to know more supplements to take for PCOS, don't hesitate to pm me. I have found what works for me and with my last blood work, all the levels were back to WLN! I have been taking the supplements for no more than a year. I don't take Vitex on its own though. I take it with a combination of other herbs meant for the female system.
