GRAPE SEED EXTRACT
Grape Seed Extract is an extremely effective anti-oxidant, which is up to 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 30 times more powerful than Vitamin C when it comes to fighting health threatening "free radicals." It prevents the oxidation of LOL, which leads to the formation of plaque or fatty deposits in the arteries; improves circulation; strengthens blood vessels and cell membranes. It reduces inflammation of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and swelling after surgery; supports tissues containing collagen and elastin,and revitalizes aging skin; reduces the tendency for easy bruising; improves night vision and helps prevent macular degeneration of the eyes. It is very similar to pine bark extract as it contains a unique type of bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins, which are synergistic with vitamin C, that is, they greatly enhance the activity of Vitamin C. In fact, some researchers believe that grape seed extract helps vitamin C enter cells, thus strengthening the cell membranes and protecting the cells from oxidative damage.
