Montreal 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 boost the body’s ability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic describes some of the latest papers about this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Montreal 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 decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health issue for many Montreal 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 studies 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 sharing with our Montreal chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many patients who also are dealing 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 gives rise to lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is mentioned as a favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed cinnamon. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic requests to know what our chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
