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!
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!
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. (3) Williamson chiropractic patients
with autoimmune disease may want to look
at quercetin with us.
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.
