Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals can you think of? Well, quercetin is a valuable
one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to reduce
allergic responses or boost immunity, quercetin is showing
itself to do more than just that! Its anti-inflammatory, immune-system
supporting, and gut microbiota-regulating features to name a few
are getting the attention of Chiropractic Care. We know
our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients will value this
vitamin flavonoid even more!
Quercetin as a flavonoid that are in herbs,
fruits (apples, berries), onions, seeds, nuts, and green tea is explained
as offering positive effects on human health by
controlling antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory effects,
and regulating metabolic pathways. By
what means? By altering gene expression,
signaling pathways and controlling proteins and cytokines. Quercetin is supposed
to most likely impact the P12K/AKT pathway and help
neurodegenerative disorders, liver diseases, and diabetes. (1) Quercetin has
been demonstrated to alleviate the neuralgia and the
inflammatory response of the sciatic nerve and spinal dorsal horn in rats with
chronic constriction injury. (2) Chiropractic Care is all for anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to managing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is maturing all the time! Its utilization in
treating and potentially inhibiting autoimmune
diseases which appear resulting from a
breakdown and dysregulation of the immune system is being analyzed.
Dietary supplementation is being used more and
more due to beneficial effects, relative safety, and minimal
cost. Quercetin stands out in this realm because
of its anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and neuroprotective
benefits. Recent studies heralded
positive effects of quercetin on rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel
disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. (3) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients
with autoimmune disease may want to look
at quercetin with us.
Quercetin is also standing out in
treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes, hyperlipedemia, and nonalcoholic
fatty liver disease. West Palm Beach chiropractic patients experience
these types of issues, too. Animal experiments reported that
quercetin promoted insulin secretion, enhanced
insulin resistance, reduced blood lipid levels, restrained
inflammation and oxidative stress, alleviated hepatic lipid
accumulation, and regulated gut microbiota.
Future human studies are hoped to discover a way to increase
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as record its efficacy.
(4) Chiropractic Care incorporates nutritional supports like
quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to help
our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients get pain relief and enjoy better health.
