HELP FOR Groton MIGRAINE

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 helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

Blood pressure is a familiar health issue for many Groton folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks.

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