Discover the Surprising Health Benefits of Rutin | Gundry MD

What Is Rutin?

Some of the best, most beneficial ingredients in dietary supplements today come directly from nature. Rutin is one such example. It’s a flavonol and is found to be abundant in individual plants. Some of the best sources of rutin are: 

  • Green tea
  • Passion Flower
  • Apples1

Rutin is also known as rutoside, sophorin, and quercetin-3-rutinoside. Rutin is classified as a citrus flavonoid and is an essential nutritional component in several different natural foods and plant-based food products. Chemically speaking, rutin is a glycoside (a simple sugar combined with another compound) full of flavonolic aglycone quercetin and disaccharide rutinose.2

Rutin is synthesized in several different kinds of higher plants.3 Higher plants, sometimes called vascular plants, belong to a sizable group of plants with vascular tissues or veins that distribute resources throughout the plant. 

Reviews suggest rutin is primarily found in vegetables, fruits, and fruit rinds. But certain citrus fruits and berries have exceptionally high rutin content. Rutin also goes by the name vitamin P.4

History Of Rutin

The name ‘rutin’ is derived from the Ruta graveolens plant. Another plant that contains rutin is the Sophora japonica L. (or the fabaceae plant). It’s prized as an herbal source of compounds and has been a staple of traditional Chinese medicinal practices for hundreds of years.5

Rutin was initially isolated from Ruta graveolens in 1842. It was next isolated from the S. japonica plant in 1853.6

Again, rutin is a citrus flavonoid glycoside, and you can find it in abundance in individual plants. Some natural sources of rutin can be found in the following:

  • Tea

  • Apples7

Due to rutin’s potential health benefits, one study called the natural compound a “vital phytochemical.”† But rutin also goes by these names: quercetin-3-rutinoside, rutoside, and sophorin.8

In various studies, rutin has exhibited the potential to help support the following:
