Auburn Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

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 boost the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones are best for what! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares some of the recent papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Auburn 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 reduced the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health condition for many Auburn folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Quite a few reports 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 reduced when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth giving to our Auburn chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. cares for many patients who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing 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 added to the management. Cinnamon is cited as a favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
