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

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!

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 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!

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

Quercetin’s reputation is getting stronger a lot! 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.

METABOLIC DISEASE

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.
