Uses

Principal Proposed Uses

Other Proposed Uses

Oxerutins are a group of chemicals derived from a naturally occurring bioflavonoid called rutin.This supplement has been widely used in Europe since the mid-1960s, as a treatment for conditions in which blood or lymph vessels leak fluid. Considerable evidence suggests that oxerutins are effective. Unfortunately, it is difficult to find this supplement in North America.

Requirements/Sources

Although they are closely related to a natural flavonoid, oxerutins are not found in food. The only way to take them is in a supplement.

Therapeutic Dosages

For varicose veins/venous insufficiency , oxerutins are usually taken in dosages ranging from 900 mg to 1,200 mg daily. A typical schedule is 1,000 mg daily, taken in two separate doses of 500 mg. For treating lymphedema and postsurgical edema , a typical dosage is a good deal higher: 3,000 mg daily. One particular oxerutin called troxerutin may be taken alone (in similar dosages) as a treatment for varicose veins. There is no evidence as yet that rutin itself is effective.
