Are you deficient in vitamin P (rutin)?

The term vitamin is used to describe a certain organic compound that the body needs but cannot produce on its own. Mainly, vitamins serve as catalysts for certain reactions in our body. If these catalysts are missing, as in the case of vitamin deficiencies, the body's normal functions no longer function properly and thus the increased risk of developing diseases appears.

Vitamin P is part of the group of bioflavonoids. Flavonoids are substances that determine the yellow or orange color of citrus fruits. It is also called capillary permeability factor ("P" comes from "permeability"). The basic role of bioflavonoids is to increase the resistance of capillary vessels, to regulate absorption at that level. Together with vitamin C, it contributes to maintaining the health of the connective tissue.

Vitamin P or bioflavonoids represent a complex of substances such as: quercetin, rutin, myricetin, apigenin, hesperidin, luteolin and others. No less than 4000 flavonoids have been discovered, and each of them has various effects on health. Vitamin P was discovered in 1936 by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, winner of the Nobel Prize for his discoveries in relation to vitamin C and biological oxidation, and the association of the two is not accidental. Studies have shown that flavonoids have a synergistic relationship with vitamin C in the antioxidant action. Water-soluble vitamin P acts simultaneously and closely related to vitamin C, ensuring its perfect absorption and use and preventing its destruction by oxidation.


Flavonoid substances

Flavonoids represent a class of phenolic substances that give the characteristic color to many species of flowers and fruits. Frequently, these pigments are found in plants in glycosidic form, in which one or more hydroxyl groups of phenols are combined with reducing carbohydrates. Flavonoids participate in oxidation-reduction processes with the role of vitamin P. Pratt (1992) found that flavonoids (flavones, flavonols, isoflavones, and flavanones) are the most important antioxidant substances.


Routine Physiological role

Vitamin P has a substantial role in the prevention of hemorrhages, contributing to the reduction of ecchymosis and gingival bleeding.

It has an anti-inflammatory effect and intervenes in the energy processes of the tissues and in maintaining the permeability of capillary vessels. In tandem with vitamin C, vitamin P has a strong anti-infective effect, managing to increase the body's resistance to infections. This combination can be used preventively and against the flu.

Vitamin P protects the body from the side effects of X-rays, positively influences the increase in the amount of calcium in the blood and helps in the treatment of dizziness caused by inner ear diseases.
  • improves the circulatory system
