Objective: The present study aimed at investigating the effect of eight weeks of combined exercise with and without the supplementation of cinnamon on hematological factors of liver enzymes in female amphetamine addicts. Method: In this quasi-experimental study, 48 women addicted to amphetamine were divided into four groups. The exercise program was performed for eight weeks (three days a week). Cinnamon supplement was taken as a 500-mg capsule twice a day after breakfast and lunch. Blood samples were taken to measure hematological factors and liver enzymes. To compare the groups, MANOVA test was used and paired t-tests were run for measuring intra-group changes. Results: The results of this study showed no significant difference in hematological variables and liver enzymes between the groups (P≥0.05). However, t-test showed a significant reduction of white blood cells in all groups, while the reduction of hematocrit and red blood cells was observed only in the supplement group (P <0.05). Conclusion: The combined exercise along with the supplementation of cinnamon can be effective in the hematologic factors of addicts.
