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 reduce
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 Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. We feel that
our Tonawanda chiropractic patients will appreciate 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 positive effects on human health by
mediating antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory impacts,
and regulating metabolic pathways. By
what means? By modifying 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 shown to reduce the neuralgia and the
inflammatory response of the sciatic nerve and spinal dorsal horn in rats with
chronic constriction injury. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation respects anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to containing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is maturing a lot! Its use for
treating and potentially inhibiting autoimmune
diseases which present themselves due to a
breakdown and dysregulation of the immune system is being studied.
Dietary supplementation is being implemented more and
more due to positive effects, relative safety, and low
cost. Quercetin shows promise in this realm because
of its anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and neuroprotective
benefits. Studies of late heralded
positive effects of quercetin on rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel
disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. (3) Tonawanda 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. Tonawanda chiropractic patients experience
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 increase
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as document its efficacy.

quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to assist
