Rutin (2013-16, '18, '19) & Neurodegenerative Disorders


Rutin has a potential protective role in neurogenerative disorders, such as AD,1, 2, 3 due to its capacity as a potent antioxidant4, 5, 6 with a strong effect on processing and clumping of amyloid beta, and changes to the oxidant-antioxidant balance linked to nerve cell death.7

In related research rutin in a sodium solution (for better absorbability) enchanced removal of amyloid beta, supported mitochondria, and reduced neuroinflammation, making it a potential therapy for Alzheimer's.8
