Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals can you think of? Well, this is a beneficial
one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to decrease
allergic responses or boost 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 Back And Neck Care Center. We know
our Severna Park 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 described
as offering positive effects on human health by
controlling antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory impacts,
and regulating metabolic pathways. By
what means? By modulating 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) Back And Neck Care Center is all for anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to containing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is getting
stronger all the time! Its utilization in
treating and potentially inhibiting 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 shows promise in this area due to its anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and neuroprotective
benefits. Recent studies described
positive effects of quercetin on rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel
disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. (3) Severna Park 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. Severna Park chiropractic patients have
these types of issues, too. Animal experiments found that
quercetin helped 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 discover a way to increase
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as detail its effectiveness.
(4) Back And Neck Care Center incorporates nutritional supports like
quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to help
our Severna Park chiropractic patients find pain relief as
well as enjoy better health.
