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

HELP FOR Colorado Springs 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 increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health condition for many Colorado Springs folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Quite a few studies have reported 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 decreased when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks.

DIABETES TYPE II

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR cares for many patients who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing many different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all brings about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
