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 proficiency to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn describes a few of the recent papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Ashburn 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 option, 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 Ashburn folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably 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 using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That’s news worth giving to our Ashburn chiropractic patients.
