Dynamic Chiropractic — March 12, dimorphandra moelis, Vol. Most phytonutrients are not essential for life, but more and more appear to be essential for optimal health and longevity.

Therefore, they may now properly be classified as micronutrients, along with vitamins and minerals. The technical classification of the major groups of dimorphandra moelis found in our diets includes: The presentation herein concerns the polyphenol-flavonoid flavonol called quercetin, a major dietary flavonoid.

The Phenol Flavonoids Phenols are a class of chemical compounds consisting of a hydroxyl group -OH attached to an aromatic hydrocarbon group.

The simplest of the class is phenol C6H5OH.

Acute and chronic toxicological studies of Dimorphandra mollis in experimental animals.

Multiple chains of phenols are called polyphenols. Phenols protect plants and humans from oxidative damage. Dimorphandra moelis block specific enzymes that cause inflammation and allergies, and modify the prostaglandin pathways, thereby protecting platelets from clumping.

They are perhaps best known for their ability to enhance the effects of ascorbic acid. Along with vitamin C, flavonoids are well-known for their ability to protect the vascular system by strengthening, maintaining and repairing dimorphandra moelis.

It is widely distributed in the plant kingdom in rinds and barks. Especially rich sources of quercetin include green apple skins, onions, red wine, green tea, St.

Quercetin has anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating, anti-viral, anti-cancer, lipid antioxidant and gastro-protective properties. It also may be active in preventing secondary complications dimorphandra moelis diabetes and in treating category III chronic prostatitis nonbacterial chronic inflammatory prostatodynia.

Acute and chronic toxicological studies of Dimorphandra mollis in experimental animals.

The better known anti-allergy effects of quercetin likely dimorphandra moelis to its inhibition qualities: Hyperglycemia enhances the flow rate of this pathway, which has been linked to diabetic complications such as cataracts, retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy.

Glucose not used for energy enters the sorbitol-aldose reductase pathway. Aldose reductase reduces glucose to the sugar-alcohol sorbitol, which is oxidized into fructose, which is returned to dimorphandra moelis normal glycolysis pathway for energy production.

In uncontrolled diabetics, who have more blood sugar than liver glycolysis can dimorphandra moelis, this patho-physiology ultimately favors the production of too much sorbitol.

The resultant overabundance of sorbitol may dimorphandra moelis glycate the nitrogens on proteins, like collagen, causing a degradation of proteins known as "cross-linking. Excessive activation dimorphandra moelis the sorbitol-aldose reductase pathway also increases pro-oxidant levels and depletes endogenous antioxidant reserves.

In nature, quercetin typically exists as a carbohydrate conjugate.

Pure quercetin itself is an "aglycone" or "aglucon," meaning that it does not possess a sugar dimorphandra moelis in its structure. Regarding the bioavailability of these quercetin conjugates, the main determinant of absorption of quercetin is the nature of the sugar moiety.

For example, quercetin from apples and tea contains dimorphandra moelis poorly absorbed galactoside, rhamnoside and arabinoside conjugates, while onion contains mainly the much more bioavailable glucosides.

This is treated with acid to obtain quercetin as a very thin powder of a greenish, yellow color. This commonly found supplemental form of quercetin, however, is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.

Bromelain and papain often are added to the formula to increase absorption. This more effective form, though more expensive, is now available for use in supplements and functional foods. These facts underline the importance of compiling food and supplement composition tables with individual glycosides listed.

Manufacturers, doctors and consumers of quercetin-containing products need to know they are using the most bioavailable forms of quercetin. An ingested dose of quercetin is absorbed from the small intestine and is then dimorphandra moelis to the liver via the portal circulation, where dimorphandra moelis undergoes significant first-pass metabolism.
