What is Diosmin?
Diosmin is a flavonoid most commonly found in citrus fruits. Flavonoids are plant compounds that have antioxidant properties, which protect your body from inflammation and unstable molecules called free radicals.
Diosmin was first isolated from the figwort plant (Scrophularia nodosa L.) in 1925 and has been used since 1969 as a natural therapy to treat various conditions, such as hemorrhoids, varicose veins, venous insufficiency, leg ulcers, and other circulatory issues.
It’s believed to help reduce inflammation and restore normal blood flow in people with venous insufficiency, a condition in which blood flow is impaired.
Today, diosmin is widely derived from another flavonoid called hesperidin, which is also found in citrus fruits — especially orange rinds.
Diosmin is often combined with micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF), a group of flavonoids that includes disomentin, hesperidin, linarin, and isorhoifolin.
Benefits and Uses
Diosmin is most widely used to treat blood vessel disorders, such as hemorrhoids and chronic venous insufficiency(CVI). Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located near the anus, while CVI refers to swollen, blocked veins in the legs.
People may also take diosmin for other blood vessel disorders, including varicose veins, blood clots, retinal hemorrhage (bleeding in the retina of the eye), venous leg ulcers, and venous stasis (slow blood flow in the legs).
Research suggests that this compound may reduce inflammation in the veins and thus improve blood flow.
