Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals come to
mind for you? Well, this is a good
one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to reduce
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 attracting the attention of Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. We know
our Carrolltown chiropractic patients will value this
vitamin flavonoid even more!
Quercetin as a flavonoid found 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 affect 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation respects anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to managing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is growing
stronger a lot! Its use for
treating and potentially preventing 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 positive effects, relative safety, and low
cost. Quercetin shows promise 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) Carrolltown 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. Carrolltown chiropractic patients have
these types of issues, too. Animal experiments reported that
quercetin promoted insulin secretion, improved
insulin resistance, reduced blood lipid levels, restrained
inflammation and oxidative stress, alleviated hepatic lipid
accumulation, and synchronized gut microbiota.
Future human studies are dreamt of to discover a way to boost
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as record its effectiveness.
