Cinnamon. It’s a tasty way to help several health issues:  migraine, blood pressure, diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to various ailments enhance the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones work for what! New Roads Chiropractic Center shares some of the recent papers about this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR New Roads 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 reduced levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center gladly shares research-based safe options to try for health.

BLOOD PRESSURE

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

DIABETES TYPE II

New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care of many patients who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving a variety of different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the management. Cinnamon is mentioned as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed cinnamon.
