West Palm Beach Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Quercetin for Inflammatory, Metabolic and Autoimmune Issues

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!

INFLAMMATION

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!

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

Quercetin’s reputation is getting stronger 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 described 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.

METABOLIC DISEASE

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.
