Cinnamon. It is 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 are best for what! Apple Country Chiropractic describes a few of the recent papers about this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Williamson MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were put to the test 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 attacks. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health condition for many Williamson folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several studies have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent 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 decreased when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our Williamson chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Apple Country Chiropractic cares for many patients who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving a variety of 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 included in the management. Cinnamon is cited as a favorable 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% used cinnamon. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic wants to know what our chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
