Harness and exploit the healing powers of this ancient remedy on your body by boosting your antioxidant levels. Great for your heart, veins and and even your skin, Swanson Superior Herbs Grapeseed Extract is a vastly improved modern take on a time honoured, age old cordial.
Grapes have been used medicinally for centuries. Since the Ancient Greeks, this humble fruit has had every part of its plant used in some way for its vital goodness. The vines were thought to be powerful anti-inflammatories that also alleviated pain while the unripened grape was often thought to help with sore throats.
Even today, the benefit of a single glass of wine a day is being legitimately touted as an aid for our hearts and cholesterol.
Truth be told, a lot of these supposed remedies have fallen by the way, destined to be remembered as little more than antiquated folklore but fortunately for us, that's not the case when it comes to grapeseeds. Science has caught up.
Swanson Superior Herbs Grapeseed Extract takes the unused grapeseeds from wine and juice production and gleans all of the antioxidant goodness from them. By maximising the bioactive polyphenols in the grape, Swanson have created an extract which targets and attacks nasty free radical cells.
Packed full of the formidable polyphenol compound Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC), the grapeseed's antioxidant potency is actually 20x that of vitamin E and an astounding 50x that of Vitamin C.
It turns out that this ultra potent antioxidant compound OPC has several strings to its bow. Primarily seen as an excellent aid in the battle against heart disease, it is now thought that it can help protect your skin too.
Chronic venous insufficiency (poor circulation) and high cholesterol have both been seen to diminish with regular consumption of Swanson Superior Herbs Grapeseed Extract. With the antioxidants effectively helping to block harmful lipids and free radical cells.
Not only that but they have also been commended for their ability to strengthen the walls of the veins, most notably in the legs - helping those suffering from hypertension.
When free radical cells steal electrons from our healthy skin cells, those skin cells start a dangerous chain reaction, stealing electrons from other cells. This causes the skin to lose elasticity and weaken as a whole. By binding with the collagen in our skin, OPCs bridge the gap left by the electron. This, in turn, allows our skin to flourish and strengthen in spite of the free radicals.
