In brief: Blood vessels

Rutin, found in buckwheat, apple peels, citrus and tobacco, may be of benefit to people who have chronic venous insufficiency (linked to varicose veins, leg cramping).
It may help treat varicose veins in pregnant women. It shows promise in the treatment of arthritis. It may treat irritable bowel disease. Too much may cause rashes, upset stomach. Promising research preventing blood clots.
