Grape Seed Extract
Most effective antioxidant - combats free radicals.
Grape Seed Extract (GSE) is a natural plant constituent (bioflavonoid) composed of proanthocyanidins (OPC)which strengthens and protects living tissue. It is a Super Antioxidant which is 50 times stronger than Vitamin E and 20 times stronger than Vitamin C. Grape Seed Extract is an antiallergenic, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. It strengthens blood vessels, improves skin, and aids in circulation.
As we age, our bodies produce less antioxidants to combat the ongoing destruction caused by free radicals, e highly reactive chemical compounds, which have the potential of damaging human DNA. They can cause malignant transformation of human cells, cause negative effects to the immune system, and they are believed to be responsible for some of the changes that the body experiences with aging. This increases our risk of developing serious health problems. Grape Seed Extract is prescribed by doctors in several European countries for the prevention and treatment of a variety of health problems including
cardiovascular disease, varicose veins, water retention, collagen damage and arthritis. Because it is used pharmaceutically, it has undergone a tremendous amount of testing. In the United States it is considered to be a dietary supplement, and may be purchased without a prescription. Grape Seed Extract is an extraordinarily safe and effective nutritional supplement.
Grape Seed Extract contains natural bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins which help strengthen and protect cell membranes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Catechins, components of Grape Seed Extract, help reduce allergic responses by inhibiting enzymes involved in the formation of histamine (helping reduce symptoms of allergies and excess histamine in the stomach which may lead to further stomach problems).
Grape Seed Extract provides cardiovascular protection by preventing oxidation of lipoproteins (LDL), making them less likely to stick to blood-vessel walls. It also makes the linings of the arteries more resistant to damage and helps control excessive clotting. GSE strengthens the capillaries ensuring a good supply ofoxygen and nutrients to the brain and throughout the body. It also affects enzymes that influence blood-fluid balances and therefore may be helpful in lowering blood pressure.
By protecting and enhancing Vitamins A and C, GSE may also aid in the reduction of wrinkles and vision problems such as macular degeneration. Recently, researchers discovered that Grape Seed Extract can help to stimulate healthy hair growth by defeating the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that stops the hair follicle growth cycle. [GSE & MSM are a great combination for healthy hair.]
