Richmond 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 proficiency to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Johnson Chiropractic describes some of the latest papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Richmond 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 option, cinnamon significantly reduced levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also lessened the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health condition for many Richmond 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) Quite a few studies 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 systolic and diastolic blood pressure lessened when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our Richmond chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Johnson Chiropractic cares for many patients who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing many different issues associated with 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 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. (5) Johnson Chiropractic requests to know what our chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
