General description

This product is provided as delivered and specified by the issuing Pharmacopoeia. All information provided in support of this product, including SDS and any product information leaflets have been developed and issued under the Authority of the issuing Pharmacopoeia.For further information and support please go to the website of the issuing Pharmacopoeia.


Studies of the behavior of hesperidin and hesperetin (the aglycone) with DMPC liposomes find the aglycone penetrates more deeply and binds more strongly to the "membrane." This may explain the better bioavailability of bioflavonoid aglycones in general.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Flavonoid phytochemical extracted from citrus species. It is the rhamnoglucoside (rutinoside) of hesperetin.


Unit quantity: 20 mg. Subject to change. The product is delivered as supplied by the issuing Pharmacopoeia. For the current unit quantity, please visit the EDQM reference substance catalogue.
