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.


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.
