It is recognized as cinnamon and have benefits against inflammation, menstrual activity and bacterial stains. The current study was planned to analyze the mineral profile and chemical composition of C.verumand its proficience results towards blood pressure levels of both male and female belonging to the areas of Jinnah colony, Gulberg and Model town Faisalabad. Results showed that C. verum powder holds 5.3±0.12% of moisture content and 2.2±0.15% of ash. Crude fiber, crude protein, crude fat and nitrogen free extract (NFE) were found to be 31.02±0.6%, 3.3±0.15%, 3.8±0.2% and 54.38±0.7% respectively. 32 subjects, male and female adults above 30 years of age who are suffering from high blood pressure were selected randomly according to their history and current blood pressure levels. 16 participants are included in control group (8 males and 8 females) and 16 are in experimental treatment group (8 males and 8 females). Patients with hypertension were fed 1.5g cinnamon powder for 20 days in order to get to know the positive effect of cinnamon powder towards the amelioration of hypertension. Blood pressure levels of all subjects were measured before initiation of efficacy and after every 5 days of consumption. Diet of subjects was modified with no restriction of medicine intake. The data was introduced to statistical analysis and results were found significant for GTF and GTM (P < 0.005) at the 20th day of trial. Systolic blood pressure levels were from 131.25±8.34 to 118.75±6.40 mmHg and diastolic blood pressures were from 100±9.25 to 83.7±15.97 mmHg diastolic blood pressure in GTF and in GTM systolic blood pressure were from 127.5±4.62 to 125±5.34 mmHg but the diastolic pressure levels were measured to be 110±17.7 to 83.75±9.61 mmHg.
