Vitamin P (rutin, bioflavonoids) are plant water-soluble substances, which are of particular value to the human body. Rutin helps reduce the fragility and fragility of capillaries.
Bioflavonoids do not have nitrogen in their composition, they are similar to each other and represent an indispensable element for the human immune system. Vitamin P does not allow entry into the body of infections, which prevents the occurrence of diseases, fights against viruses and bacteria, removes heavy metals and toxins from the body.
Vitamin P has the following functions on the human body:
Protection and strengthening of cells of the body;
Degreasing of free radicals;
Increased immunity and protection from negative factors;
Prevention of early aging and the development of various diseases;
Obstruction of varicose veins, pressure drops, swelling of the tissues and circulatory disorders;
Stopping the development of cancer;
Removal and prevention of inflammatory processes.
With the help of vitamin P, you can get rid of allergic conditions and relieve pain, ease the course of internal bleeding, hemorrhoids, hypertension, and prevent the development of heart attacks and strokes.
Sources of Vitamin P
Bioflavonoids are found only in food of plant origin, mainly in citrus – in white peel and interlobular parts. Frozen fruits practically do not preserve vitamin P. Destructive factors for these elements are: tobacco smoke, water, light, open air, and also prolonged heat treatment.
Citrus fruits – lemon, orange, grapefruit, mandarin, pomelo;
Berries are raspberries, blueberries, cherries, black currants, chokeberry;
Fruits – grapes, apricots;
Vegetables – cabbage, tomatoes, capsicum, green salad;
Parsley, coriander, dill;
Cereals are buckwheat;
Tea, coffee, live beer, wine;
Black chocolate (not less than 70% cocoa).
In foods of animal origin, rutin is not contained, so people who eat few vegetables, fruits and berries are recommended to take medicines containing flavonoids as an active food additive.
Daily norm of vitamin P and recommendations for admission
The daily need of the organism in routine is not fully understood and established. Experts say that a balanced diet replenishes the body’s need for this element.
Additional intake of flavonoids is necessary when bruises appear on the skin after the slightest bruise or pressure, which indicates the weakness of blood vessels and capillaries.
For better absorption of the routine into the body, an additional intake of ascorbic acid is recommended in the ratio: 100 mg of vitamin P per 500 mg of ascorbic acid.

In childhood, the daily requirement for vitamin P varies from 25 to 30 mg, depending on the nutrition of the child.
Daily rate for men
Adolescents and men need flavonoids in the amount of 40 to 50 mg, depending on the presence in the diet of fruits, vegetables and greens rich in vitamin P.
Daily allowance for women
A female body needs 30-45 mg of routine per day. This number of elements necessary for the body is sufficient to enhance vital functions and strengthen the walls of blood vessels and capillaries.
