Rutin is a flavonoid compound found in many plants such as buckwheat, asparagus, citrus fruits, and apples. Rutin is also known as rutoside, quercetin-3-rutinoside, and sophorin. Rutin (95% purity) is a dietary supplement that is derived from the Japanese pagoda tree (Sophora japonica) or the common rue (Ruta graveolens).
Rutin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties. It has been studied for its potential to improve heart health by lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol levels, and preventing blood clots. Rutin has also been found to have a protective effect on the liver, improve cognitive function, and enhance bone health. Additionally, rutin is known to strengthen capillaries, which can help improve circulation and reduce the appearance of varicose veins.
