GLOSSARY
GRAPESEED EXTRACT

Grapeseed extract

 

How does it work?

Grapeseed extract is derived from the skins of the grape seed itself, offering many endogenous antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, anticarcinogenic and antibacterial activities.1 This is due to the seeds containing high amounts of oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs) and resveratrol, which are potent antioxidant tannins.2 These OPCs have been shown to have antioxidant activity 20 times stronger than Vitamin C.3 Grapeseed extract is also known to help stabilise capillary walls and enhance wound healing through strengthening the collagen matrix within tissues.4

What results can be expected?

Grapeseed extract may assist in reducing fluid retention, peripheral venous insufficiency and capillary resistance, particularly in the legs or premenstrual oedema.5 Grapeseed extract is also used to assist in preventing and treating complications in diabetes such as retinopathy and nephropathy, helping to protect against cellular damage.6 Due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-thrombotic activity, grapeseed extract may assist in preventing cardiovascular disease and also to improve recovery from cardiovascular events such as heart attack.7
