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

Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals can you think of? Well, this is a valuable one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to decrease allergic reactions or enhance immunity, quercetin is demonstrating 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 Malverne Health & Wellness. We know our Malverne chiropractic patients will value this vitamin flavonoid even more!

INFLAMMATION

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 impacts, and regulating metabolic pathways.  How? By altering gene expression, signaling pathways and controlling proteins and cytokines. Quercetin is supposed to most likely impact the P12K/AKT pathway and help 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) Malverne Health & Wellness respects anti-inflammatory responses when it comes to managing pain!

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

Quercetin’s reputation is getting 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 increasingly due to beneficial effects, relative safety, and minimal cost. Quercetin shows promise 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) Malverne chiropractic patients with autoimmune disease may want to look at quercetin with us.

METABOLIC DISEASE

Quercetin is also standing out in treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes, hyperlipedemia, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Malverne chiropractic patients experience these types of issues, too. Animal experiments found that quercetin promoted 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 dreamt of to discover a way to boost the bioavailability of quercetin as well as record its effectiveness. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness includes nutritional supports like quercetin with its chiropractic spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic to assist our Malverne chiropractic patients get pain relief and enjoy better health.
