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 boost the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Most Chiropractic Clinic describes some of the latest papers concerning this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Murfreesboro MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, 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! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Murfreesboro folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A new meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree overall.  Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure reduced when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Most Chiropractic Clinic 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 results in lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is mentioned as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
