Since runes generally "fall off" as the game continues, I would recommend Greater Quintessence of Health.

Greater Quintessence of Health gives a good 26 health each, while Greater Quintessence of Scaling Health grants less than double, AT LEVEL 18. They give close to 50 each. 150 health at level 18 really isn't much, but 78 health at level 1 IS A LOT.

Runes are typically most effective in the early-mid game, so it's better to use flat runes over scaling runes. There are a few exceptions, such as Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power over Greater Glyph of Ability Power, since the 2 balance out at around level 7, and that is around the time when you see kills typically happen in the mid lane.

In general, the type of rune you choose to buy (scaling or flat) mainly depends on the amount of stats they give each, the point in time when they balance out, and when the stats are most useful. Defensive stats should always be acquired early, whereas offensive stats may differ, like the example with AP runes I provided.
