Manahawkin Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

Cinnamon. It’s a tasty way to address several health issues:  migraine, blood pressure, diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to various ailments boost the body’s proficiency to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones work for what! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center reports on some of the recent papers concerning this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Manahawkin MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also lessened the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Manahawkin folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports 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 diastolic and systolic blood pressure decreased when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That is news worth giving to our Manahawkin chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center takes care of many patients who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing many different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is stated as a favorable 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.
