Baton Rouge 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 proficiency to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers describes a few of the latest papers about this simple ingredient, cinnamon.


The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon 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 decreased 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 condition for many Baton Rouge folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports 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 systolic and diastolic blood pressure lessened when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth giving to our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.


Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers cares for many patients who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving a variety of different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the management. Cinnamon is cited as an advantageous 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% used cinnamon.
