West Palm Beach Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

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 enhance the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones are best for what! Moses Chiropractic shares a few of the recent papers concerning this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR West Palm Beach MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased 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 helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many West Palm Beach 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 stated 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 using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That’s news worth giving to our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Moses Chiropractic cares for many patients who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving 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 stated as a positive 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% used cinnamon. (5) Moses Chiropractic wants to know what our chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
