HELP FOR Eugene MIGRAINE

Compared to a control treatment, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! Plus, cinnamon is a safe supplement.
