Cinnamon. It is a tasty way to help several health issues:  migraine, blood pressure, diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to various ailments boost the body’s capability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Soft Health and Healing Clinic reports on some of the recent papers concerning this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Brooks MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were put to the test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Brooks folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several reports have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A new meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon supplementation can improve blood pressure by a modest degree overall.  Significant reductions in both diastolic and systolic blood pressure lessened when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.

DIABETES TYPE II

This all brings about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is stated as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
