Fort Wayne Nutrition: Beneficial Cinnamon

August 04, 2020

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 enhance the body’s capability to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones are best for what! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc reports on some of the latest papers about this simple ingredient, cinnamon.


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 treatment, cinnamon significantly reduced 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! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Fort Wayne 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) Several 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 reduced when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.

Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc takes care of many patients who also have 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 brings about lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is mentioned as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
