My husband suffers from internal and external hemorrhoids. Internet searches yielded interesting information. Vitamin P, or Rutin, a phytonutrient, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and free radical scavenger, also relieves hemorrhoids. Rutin known also as Vitamin P, isn’t a true member of the vitamin family, but it is a bioflavinoid.
Rutin is found naturally in plant sources such as apricots, cherries, prunes and the soft inner rinds of citrus fruits. Buckwheat also contains rutin. Buckwheat is a plant, but not a grain or cereal plant. Buckwheat is more commonly eaten as groats. The Japanese make noodles from buckwheat also.
As a bioflavinoid anti-oxidant, rutin (vitamin P) acts on the circulatory system to strengthen blood vessels, especially the tiny capillaries in the eyes. Rutin is very effective in easing bleeding and circulation problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, canker sores in the mouth, poor circulation, cirrhosis, even hay fever.
Rutin, or Vitamin P, as an anti-inflammatory, works very well to reduce swelling. Hemorrhoids are caused when delicate blood vessels inside and near the rectum and anus swell and bulge. Hemorrhoids are terribly painful. Hemorrhoids burn, itch and ache.
Having suffered with hemorrhoids for almost 30 years, off and on, my husband has tried all the over-the-counter creams, ointments and pads. At one point, he even had hemorrhoid surgery to remove to repair the worst hemorrhoids. With this most recent bout of hemorrhoids, my husband has had little or no relief. Even the tried and true home remedies, such as topical witch hazel, oral colloidal silver and goldenseal and Sitz baths brought no relief of hemorrhoids. An internet search led us to try rutin for which we had high hopes, primarily because it was a natural supplement. Taking rutin supplements has greatly reduced my husband’s hemorrhoid symptoms. He now swears by rutin (vitamin P) for hemorrhoids.
Rutin is available at health food stores and many large grocery stores. For maximum effectiveness, rutin is best taken with vitamin C. Cost for rutin is about $12.99 for one hundred rutin capsules. Visit Amazon.com for best price comparison of Rutin online.
