HELP FOR Severna Park 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 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 helped migraine in this study! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health condition for many Severna Park folks. Supplementing with cinnamon 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 new 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 lessened when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.

DIABETES TYPE II

Back And Neck Care Center takes care of many patients who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving many different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all brings about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
