Nutritional approaches to various ailments boost the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones work for what! Chiropractic Care reports on some of the latest papers concerning this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR West Palm Beach MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also lessened 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 familiar health issue for many West Palm Beach folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports have stated 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Chiropractic Care takes care of many patients who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing many different issues associated with insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is mentioned as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
