Anti-Inflammatory Benefit of Selenium in a Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Plan

Micronutrients like selenium are not so “micro” when you consider their power! The nutrients like vitamin C and D and B draw much of the attention, but researchers continue to unravel the power of the micronutrients. Selenium’s benefit – at least one benefit – rests in its anti-inflammatory capacity. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares selenium’s latest research support for our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients’ consideration regarding any inflammatory issues they may be dealing with (ie, disc herniation, Fernandina Beach back pain, neck pain, leg pain, arm pain, etc.).

THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF MICRONUTRIENTS

Vitamins and trace elements are micronutrients that maintain the health of organisms like us humans. These micronutrients are active! They are vital to every cellular/biochemical process in the body: functions of heart and brain, immune responses, antioxidant defense sequences. Long-term deficiency of any singular micronutrient leads to disorders associated with the cardiovascular or neurodegenerative systems. Researchers share that older folks need to be really careful as they are more prone to problems due to diet and such. The deficiency of micronutrients is demonstrated to possess an indirect impact on the genome even and slow antioxidant enzymes and reduce the efficiency of defense against free radicals. More such damage, the faster the aging process of cells and the greated the risk of pathological processes like cancer. (1) In this discussion, we are|we’re]33] going to focus on selenium for the sake of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic nutrition tip.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECT - CARDIOVASULAR, VASCULAR, BOWEL DISEASE

Notably, selenium deficiency especially in the elder population was associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. As a matter of fact, selenium deficiency is independently associated with cardiovascular disease. It also is linked to elevated circulating inflammatory markers and affected by the expression of chemokines, cytokines and sirtuins in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. (Yes, we’re getting down to the cellular level where the terms are even more strange to our day-to-day language!) Selenium as a key micronutrient for health that protects the body from oxidative stress that accumulates over time particularly in older folks. (2) Selenium deficiency further has a detrimental impact on vascular disease since inflammation stimulates vascular disease. MicroRNA (miRNA) can affect inflammation in many ways. A selenium deficiency can affect miRNA’s expression by stimulating inflammation. (3) Promoting inflammation is not what Amelia Chiropractic Clinic or our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients desire! Selenium in conjunction with zinc are a couple of the most important micronutrients possessing significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that they are crucial in inflammatory bowel disease. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic talks about the role of inflammation in Fernandina Beach back pain and other spine pain conditions. Keeping the body equipped with the proper vitamins and micronutrients to maximally address such inflammatory issues is critical to our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients’ health.
