HELP FOR Malverne 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 reduced levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health condition for many Malverne folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several studies have reported 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 reduced when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks.
