Millville Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

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 capability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones are best for what! Wilson Family Chiropractic reports on a few of the latest papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Millville MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties 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 attacks. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health condition for many Millville folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few 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 diastolic and systolic blood pressure reduced when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our Millville chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 results in 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 revealed that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed cinnamon.
