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 reactions or enhance immunity, quercetin is showing
itself to do more than just that! Its anti-inflammatory, immune-system
supporting, and gut microbiota-regulating elements to name a few
are getting the attention of Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. We feel that
our Pensacola 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
mediating 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 benefit
neurodegenerative disorders, liver diseases, and diabetes. (1) Quercetin has
been shown to reduce the neuralgia and the
inflammatory response of the sciatic nerve and spinal dorsal horn in rats with
chronic constriction injury. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center respects anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to managing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is getting
stronger all the time! Its utilization in
treating and potentially preventing autoimmune
diseases which present themselves due to a
breakdown and dysregulation of the immune system is being examined.
Dietary supplementation is being implemented increasingly 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. Studies of late described
positive effects of quercetin on rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel
disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. (3) Pensacola 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. Pensacola chiropractic patients experience
these types of issues, too. Animal experiments found that
quercetin helped insulin secretion, enhanced
insulin resistance, reduced 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 increase
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as record its efficacy.
(4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center incorporates nutritional supports like
quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to help
our Pensacola chiropractic patients get pain relief as
well as enjoy better health.
