HELP FOR Pensacola MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were put to the test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly decreased 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! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Pensacola 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 new meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree overall.  Significant reductions in both diastolic and systolic blood pressure reduced when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks.

DIABETES TYPE II

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 results in 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.
