Rutin is a flavonoid compound, which is a strong oxidant for scavenging free radicals, which can terminate the chain reaction of free radicals.

2. Antagonize the action of platelet-activating factor

The pathogenesis of many cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as thrombosis, atherosclerosis, inflammation, and ischemia-reperfusion free radical injury, is closely related to platelet-activating factor (PAF). The mechanism of action of rutin against PAF is that rutin inhibits the activation of PAF receptors, thereby blocking the response induced by PAF, thereby protecting the cardiovascular system. The results show that rutin is a PAF receptor antagonist.
