Rutin is a source of bioflavonoids, a powerful phytochemical. Yarrow extract is called ‘Achillea Millefolium’ in Greek, after the mythical figure Achilles. It was believed this particular herb was used by ancient Greek warriors due to its healing benefits. For centuries the berries of the Hawthorne have been used in traditional medicine.
