Nutritional approaches to various ailments boost the body’s capability to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones are best for what!

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

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health issue for many Baton Rouge folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several studies have stated 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 decreased when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.

DIABETES TYPE II

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation cares for many patients who also have 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 added to the management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
