HELP FOR Lynchburg MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher 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 attacks. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Lynchburg folks. Cinnamon supplementation favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few 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 8 weeks.
