Rutin is extracted from dried buds of Sophorae Japonica. Pure rutin is a yellow or yellow-green needle crystal. Rutin is a flavonolic glycoside composed of quercetin and disaccharide rutinose. Rutin is a powerful antioxidant. It helps the body use vitamin C, maintains blood vessel integrity, and promotes healthy inflammation. It is also used in the food industry as a pigment.

  • Rutin inhibits platelet aggregation
  • Rutin reduces capillary permeability, improving blood circulation.
  • Rutin has anti-inflammatory activity (studies in rats and guinea pigs)
  • Rutin helps prevent blood clots, which is why rutin is used to treat patients at risk of heart attacks and strokes.
  • Rutin has been used in the treatment of hemorrhoids, varicose veins and microangiopathy.
  • At relatively high doses, rutin increases the uptake of iodine by the thyroid gland (a study in rats) and decreases the levels of T3 and T4 hormones.
  • Rutin is also an antioxidant. Rutin has been shown to be stronger than quercetin, hesperidin and naringin. However, in other studies, rutin was found to be less effective than quercetin.

How it works

Rutin has chemicals that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. These chemicals provide protection against cancer and other diseases.


Rutin is safe for most adults when taken appropriately.
