HELP FOR Augusta MIGRAINE
Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly decreased 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! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Augusta folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several studies have reported 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 lessened when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks.
