What is Rutin?
Rutin, a type of bioflavonoid, is found in black tea, buckwheat bran, many citrus fruits and
even apple skins, and is also available as a supplement in capsule or tablet form. Rutin
helps the body utilize vitamin C and produce collagen (skin's main building blocks), can
be used to treat conditions such as hemorrhoids and high blood pressure (hypertension),
and can also reduce cholesterol levels.
NOW Rutin is vegetarian and derived from a non-citrus source.
Benefits of Rutin
Strong Blood Vessels
Dr. Andrew Weil, a nationally recognized leader in integrative medicine, points out that
rutin can be very helpful in treating strained blood vessels in such conditions as
hemorrhoids due to rutin's ability to maintain capillary flexibility and strength. The capillaries
are the smallest blood vessels in the body, and when they get strained in the anal region
due to overweight or pregnancy, having chronic diarrhea or constipation, or other reasons,
the results are swollen blood vessels, or hemorrhoids
Rutin is considered to be an antioxidant, meaning that it binds to damaging free radicals
in the body and neutralizes them. According to the American Heart Association (AHA),
free radicals turn LDL cholesterol into plaques, which in turn can block arteries and prevent
normal blood flow (a condition known as atherosclerosis). Blocked arteries can lead to
such cardiovascular conditions as hearth disease and stroke.
