Natural Factor Rutin is a bioflavonoid that is found in many plants. Buckwheat contains about 3 percent dry by weight rutin when the plant is starting to bloom. In particular, rutin, as well as the bioflavonoids, Quercetin, and naringen, work synergistically with vitamin C to scavenge free radicals. As well as being an antioxidant, rutin helps vitamin C to keep collagen, our 'intercellular cement', healthy. Rutin strengthens capillaries, reducing their fragility, and regulates their permeability, so is very supportive bioflavonoid for blood vessel health. Rutin may help reduce nosebleeds and the bruising and swelling of sports injuries. Rutin, Quercetin and other bioflavonoids help to inhibit the release of histamine which makes these bioflavonoids very valuable for allergy-sufferers.
