HELP FOR Pflugerville MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon 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 decreased 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 Pflugerville folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few reports have reported 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 diastolic and systolic blood pressure decreased when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our Pflugerville chiropractic patients.
