Toronto Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

Cinnamon. It is 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 capability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones are best for what! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre shares a few of the latest papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Toronto 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 treatment, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced 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 familiar health issue for many Toronto 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 using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our Toronto chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre cares for many patients who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing a variety of different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all brings about lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the management. Cinnamon is stated as a positive 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.
