If you have hemorrhoids then you need to be taking a good supplement of bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids have been found to be most effective in helping to relieve and eliminate the symptoms of hemorrhoids. They are useful in reducing enlarged veins in the rectum and in the legs (varicose veins.)
Use them everyday as a hemorrhoids treatment. There are many foods that contain rutin, so eat the foods, but to get a high dose use a supplement.
The bioflavonoids have been used in clinical studies and have been shown to be a positive hemorrhoid treatment.
Rutin is bioflavonoids, which is effective in reducing and treating hemorrhoids. It does this by strengthening and improving the permeability of the blood vessels and capillaries. Blood vessels that have a high efficiency of allowing nutrients and wastes to move in and out of their walls easily permeability allow the area involved to recover from illness quicker.
Here are some of the benefits of rutin:
provides nutritional support to the circulatory systems
provides nutrition to the eye capillaries and is used for glaucoma
prevents recurrent bleeding caused by weakened blood vessels
prevents blood vessel walls becoming fragile
In addition to its use as a hemorrhoids treatment, rutin has been found useful and effective for poor circulation, high blood pressure, varicose veins, capillary fragility, and other conditions where the blood vessels are weak.
In his booklet called Natural Remedies for What Ails You, 1985, Mark Bricklin shares some testimonials about the use of rutin,
Last summer I was home visiting my mother. I had just returned from a long and very tiring trip, where I was on my feet all day every day. At this time I was having terrible pains and chills, and bleeding from hemorrhoids. I had been having trouble for eight years and the doctors were recommending surgery.
I had been in bed at my mothers house for three days when she started me on rutin tablets. In one week, my hemorrhoids were gone: no bleeding or swelling. It has been a year this month and I have never been bothered again. K.R., Oklahoma.
