The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased 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 attacks. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health condition for many Tonawanda 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 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 decreased when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.
