Quercetin. How many Q-starting vitamins or minerals come to
mind for you? Well, quercetin is a good
one! A yellow pigment in plants used as a food supplement to decrease
allergic reactions or boost 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 attracting the attention of Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. We feel that
our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients will appreciate 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 positive effects on human health by
mediating antioxidant activities, immune-modulatory effects,
and regulating metabolic pathways. By
what means? By modifying gene expression,
signaling pathways and controlling proteins and cytokines. Quercetin is thought
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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic respects anti-inflammatory
responses when it comes to managing pain!
Quercetin’s reputation is maturing all the time! 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 used increasingly due to positive effects, relative safety, and minimal
cost. Quercetin stands out in this realm because
of 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) Fort Wayne 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. Fort Wayne chiropractic patients experience
these types of issues, too. Animal experiments reported that
quercetin promoted insulin secretion, improved
insulin resistance, lowered blood lipid levels, restrained
inflammation and oxidative stress, alleviated hepatic lipid
accumulation, and regulated gut microbiota.
Future human studies are dreamt of to discover a way to increase
the bioavailability of quercetin as well as record its effectiveness.

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