Nutritional approaches to various ailments enhance the body’s capability to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones work for what! Vancouver Disc Centers reports on a few of the recent papers regarding this simple ingredient, cinnamon.

HELP FOR Vancouver MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly reduced 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 common health issue for many Vancouver folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several studies have stated 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 reduced when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks.

This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the management. Cinnamon is stated as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
