Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for March 26, 2008

A couple of days of Rutin and I’m not feeling the effects anymore. I’ve switched to taking calcium/magnesium three times a day over the past few days and I’m feeling a lot better. I’m guessing it’s because of the effect on the potassium but I can’t say for sure, I just know I’m feeling so much better.

For years I’ve had “tired eyes” and a sensitivity to bright light. One day after taking 500 mg of Rutin and it’s a whole new world. I can’t believe it. Another deficiency discovered and I’d never even heard of Rutin.

Another point? I checked my multivitamin from NuLife and it actually contains a small dosage of Rutin. Obviously not enough to correct a deficiency. Sometimes I agree with the principle of taking multivitamins. Sometimes, I don’t.

BioFlavinoids (Rutin, Hesperidin and Quercetin)

This is the collective name given to rutin, hesperidin and quercetin. Bioflavonoids promote the non-specific actions of the immune system. Bioflavonoids are involved in maintaining the health of the collagen that holds the cells together by forming the basement membranes of cells, tissues, and cartilage.

Anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins can be used to treat a number of eye conditions such as cataracts, night blindness , diabetic retinopathy (progressive retina disease that is a complication of diabetes), and macular degeneration (a hereditary condition causing loss of vision). Hesperidin is useful in treating the complaints of menopause and in dealing with the viruses that cause herpes, the flu, and certain respiratory ailments. Hesperidin fights allergic reactions by blocking the release of histamine. Ellagic acid helps to inhibit cancer by neutralizing the effect of certain carcinogens.

Rutin (vitamin P1)

Rutin is a bioflavonoid that works with vitamin C and assists in reducing pain and intraocular pressure. Rutin may also help maintain levels of the biological antioxidant reduced glutathione. Rutin can be used to treat chronic venous insufficiency, glaucoma, hay fever, hemorrhoids, varicose veins , poor circulation, oral herpes, cirrhosis, stress, low serum calcium, and for cataracts.

Today I went back to the sites I used when I was researching high levels of copper and right there underneath my nose they suggested that a copper deficiency could cause a deficiency in rutin.

Vitamin Deficiencies
The following vitamin deficiencies in the body may be caused by a copper deficiency: vitamin C, inositol, folic acid, vitamin B6 and rutin.

Off to the health food store for some Rutin!

Today I come across something today that I’ve overlooked and has a close relationship with copper.

Hesperidin & Copper

Flavonoids / Bioflavonoids (bioflavinoids) are accessory nutrients to form an ascorbic acid or Vitamin C complex. Rutin and hesperidin are part of this Vitamin P group and function synergistically with Vitamin C in regard to maintaining healthy capillaries, to help form collagen in connective tissue,
to help heal wounds, and to support a healthy immune system.
 
Copper is the most common and potent inhibitor of hesperidin and Vitamin C, being the reason why high levels of copper create a greater risk for vascular degeneration, which in turn requires greater intake of Vitamin C, sulfur, chromium, or molybdenum to lower copper – to make it more bioavailable,
otherwise hesperidin levels will not go up, no matter how much is supplemented.  Abnormal liver functions, triggered by drugs, hormones – particularly elevated estrogen – alcohol, etc., or the structural changes experienced during pregnancy, as well as lack of exercise and excessive amounts of time spent in a sitting position can be equally responsible to promote vascular degeneration.
 
Hesperidin has a right-sided cell receptor (as has copper), so medical problems associated with its deficiency, and/or with copper excesses, are invariably right-sided as well. It is not unusual to see hemorrhoids or varicose veins being noticeably worse on one side only. Rutin is inhibited mostly by chromium, and since chromium levels are on average not as high as copper levels, rutin levels are invariably higher than hesperidin levels as long as dietary intake of rutin and hesperidin are similar.
