Natural Remedies using Rutin

with the same activity.” The presence of ACE-inhibitors, beta-blockers, calcium-channel blockers, and diuretics makes this herb a safer offering in my book, than the four separate pharmaceuticals belonging to those A, B, C, and D recommendations for cardiopathy. ‘Roots, leaves, and flowers all contain cardioactive compounds (CRC). One paper cited in Mitchell and Rook notes that corneal scratches with the thorns led to blindness in 88 of 132 Irish accidents. With cyanogenic and cardioactive compounds, not to mention tannin, scattered throughout the plant, it should not be taken lightly” (CRC). The presence of oleanolic and ursolic acids (COX-2 inhibitors) may be equally significant in Alzheimer’s disease, arthrosis, and cancer. With isolated guinea pig heart muscle, luteolin-7-glucoside increased coronary flow 186%, hyperoside 66%, and rutin 66% (PH2).

Contraindications, Interactions, and Side Effects (Buckwheat) — Not covered (AHP). None reported when properly administered (PHR). Not covered by AHP or Commission E. Rutin underlies much of the activity. Not covered in most of my books, more food than medicine. But it is clearly a safe food pharmaceutical for most people (note caveats). Intake of large quantities can cause phototoxic doses in grazing animals (PHR). I know one chemist’s wife was almost killed eating noodles in Japan made of buckwheat flour. So some people can have fatally anaphylactic reactions to buckwheat. There are some similarities between the globulins in buckwheat and those in pea and soy. Phototoxic fagopyrine may cause fagopyrism in sheep and swine, inducing cramps, dermatosis, and nausea (HHB).

Contraindications, Interactions, and Side Effects (Hydrangea) — Class 2d. Not for prolonged use. Do not exceed recommended dose. Cyanogenic properties (AHP). ‘Hazards and/or side effects not known for proper therapeutic dosages” (PH2) (but PH2 designates no specific quantified dosage! JAD). CAN cautions regarding GI irritation and dermatosis. Overdoses may cause tightness in chest and vertigo. Hydrangin may cause gastrosis and enterosis. And the cop-out clause. In view of the ‘lack of” data, use during pregnancy and lactation, and excessive use should be avoided (CAN). Extract is nontoxic in animals (PNC). Hydrangenol is allergenic (PHR; PH2). Flavonoids such as quercetin and rutin (widespread in other herbs) are said to be diuretic, to inhibit tumor formation, and to reduce inflammation. Synthesized hydrangeol derivatives are reportedly antiallergic, inhibiting hyaluronidase activity and histamine release (CAN).
