Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals can you think of? Well, quercetin is a beneficial
one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to decrease
allergic responses or enhance immunity, quercetin is demonstrating
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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. We know
our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients will appreciate this
vitamin flavonoid even more!
Quercetin as a flavonoid that are in herbs,
fruits (apples, berries), onions, seeds, nuts, and green tea is described
as offering beneficial effects on human health by
controlling antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory impacts,
and regulating metabolic pathways. How? By altering gene expression,
signaling pathways and controlling proteins and cytokines. Quercetin is thought
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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 possibly inhibiting autoimmune
diseases which appear resulting from a
breakdown and dysregulation of the immune system is being analyzed.
Dietary supplementation is being implemented more and
more due to beneficial effects, relative safety, and low
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) Fort Wayne chiropractic patients
with autoimmune disease may want to consider whether quercetin may be helpful.
Quercetin is also standing out in
treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes, hyperlipedemia, and nonalcoholic
fatty liver disease. Fort Wayne 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, eased hepatic lipid
accumulation, and regulated gut microbiota.
Future human studies are dreamt of to discover a way to boost
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as detail its effectiveness.
(4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc incorporates nutritional supports like
quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to assist
our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients get pain relief and enjoy better health.
