NOW Foods Rutin 450mg

Rutin is classified as a bioflavonoid, a class of antioxidant that aids the body in combating free radical damage. This nutrient is best known for its ability to protect cardiovascular health through neutralising cholesterol and managing blood pressure levels. Rutin also aids in utilising Vitamin C and producing collagen. Food sources of rutin include citrus fruits, apple skins, and buckwheat.

  • Rutin supports overall blood vessel health. This antioxidant appears to help in maintaining the strength and flexibility of the capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body. Due to this, Rutin is being recommended by Doctors for restoring capillary functions in people with haemorrhoids associated with obesity, pregnancy, chronic constipation, and chronic diarrhea.
  • Rutin has powerful antioxidant properties. It donates oxygen molecules to damaging free radicals to render them harmless to the cells and tissues. Its antioxidant mechanisms interfere with the development of cholesterol plaques in the blood vessels, which obstructs blood flow and damage blood vessel strength and flexibility.
  • Rutin appears to support the production of collagen essential for bone strength and healthy skin. Collagen is one of the major building blocks of connective tissues including the bones, the skin, cartilages, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Even nails are made up of collagen. Rutin supplements may help replenish the reduced production of collagen associated with advancing age.
  • Rutin may help the body in the utilisation of Vitamin C or ascorbic acid. Rutin helps to make use of Vitamin C, one of the most widely available antioxidants for immune defence, collagen formation, prevention of pellagra, and protection from free radical damage.

Rutin is a cardio-protective nutrient found in citrus and non-citrus fruits including apples skins, and buckwheat. It is one of the bioflavonoid antioxidants that help the body neutralise free radicals by donating oxygen molecules to render them harmless to the cells and tissues. Free radicals are both naturally occurring and acquired. They are the by-products of the numerous metabolic processes occurring in the body and also acquired from exogenous factors like pollution and unhealthy lifestyle. Scientists have established a strong link between free radical damage to a wide range of illnesses, including cardiovascular health problems. Too much free radicals in the body increases the risk for obesity, hypertension, atherosclerosis, aneurysms, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), hyperlipidemia, hypercholesterolemia, and in worse cases, heart attack and stroke.

Rutin interferes with free radical damage by neutralising free radicals. They freely donate oxygen to these unstable compounds to make them stable. Through this, Rutin protects the DNA, mitochondria, cell membrane, RNA, and other critical components of the cells. Rutin also prevents lipids and cholesterol from going through a process called peroxidation that leads to these fats forming into plaque deposits into the blood vessels. According to numerous studies, adding rutin in the daily diet promotes total blood vessel health from the large arteries to the minute capillaries. Rutin may be effective in maintaining blood vessel flexibility and strength to deliver blood. The benefits of Rutin for the blood vessels may be of higher value for those with existing blood flow obstructions, blood pressure problems, history of heart attack, and haemorrhoids.
