for many West Des Moines 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 reports
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. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
West Des Moines chiropractic patients.

different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the
management. Cinnamon is mentioned as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa requests to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
