HELP FOR Carrolltown MIGRAINE

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 treatment, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Carrolltown folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks.

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 using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks.
