Williamson Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Quercetin for Inflammatory, Metabolic and Autoimmune Issues

Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals can you think of? Well, this is a valuable one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to decrease allergic responses or enhance 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 attracting the attention of Apple Country Chiropractic. We feel that our Williamson 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 beneficial effects on human health by controlling antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory effects, and regulating metabolic pathways.  How? By altering gene expression, signaling pathways and controlling proteins and cytokines. Quercetin is supposed to most likely impact the P12K/AKT pathway and benefit neurodegenerative disorders, liver diseases, and diabetes. (1) Quercetin has been shown to alleviate the neuralgia and the inflammatory response of the sciatic nerve and spinal dorsal horn in rats with chronic constriction injury. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic respects anti-inflammatory responses when it comes to managing pain!

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

Quercetin’s reputation is growing stronger a lot! Its utilization in treating and possibly inhibiting autoimmune diseases which appear resulting from a breakdown and dysregulation of the immune system is being examined. Dietary supplementation is being implemented more and more due to positive effects, relative safety, and low cost. Quercetin stands out in this area due to its anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and neuroprotective benefits. Studies of late described positive effects of quercetin on rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus.

METABOLIC DISEASE

Quercetin is also shining bright in treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes, hyperlipedemia, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Williamson chiropractic patients have these types of issues, too. Animal experiments reported that quercetin promoted insulin secretion, enhanced insulin resistance, lowered blood lipid levels, restrained inflammation and oxidative stress, eased hepatic lipid accumulation, and controlled gut microbiota. Future human studies are hoped to find a way to boost the bioavailability of quercetin as well as detail its effectiveness. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic incorporates nutritional supports like quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to assist our Williamson chiropractic patients get pain relief as well as enjoy better health.
