Grapeseeds are one of the world's richest sources of antioxidants. Now you can enjoy the remarkable free radical scavenging ability of these potent pips. Standardised to 90% polyphenols, Swanson Superior's proprietary formula is an extract with a potent punch.
Toxic free radicals are everywhere. They are in the air that we breathe, the food that we eat and the cells that already constitute so much of who we are. So it's incredibly important to protect ourselves against them and the oxidative process as a whole, at all times. We do this with antioxidants.
Antioxidants are nutrients that work by directly neutralising those cells which have 'gone rogue' and begun to attack us from within. They are the unheralded knights in shining armour of our immune system and without them we would be in a lot of trouble. How do we get them? By en large, through our diets. Of course some foods are more antioxidant rich than others and quite often, those foods tend to be things that we might not regularly eat or drink.
Grapeseeds are an excellent case in point. Grapes (Vitis vinifera) have been a huge part of health regimens for centuries, millennia even. The Egyptians enjoyed eating grapes well over 6,000 years ago, and the Greeks enjoyed a fruitful relationship with these sweet, seeded orbs too (although predominantly as wine!).
They have been used by just about every culture who have grown them to treat a wide scope of different ailments. But it is only now, after years of research, that we have truly come to understand the healing abilities of the grape. Swanson Superior Herbs Grapeseed Extract is the culmination of those studies. Standardized to 90% polyphenols for guaranteed potency, it really is an antioxidant powerhouse.
Although small, the nutritional bounty concealed within grapeseeds is plentiful. Rich in flavonoids, vitamin E, OPCs, linoleic acid and resveratrol, grapeseed's antioxidant value has seen it linked with preventing a number of health problems, including heart disease.
The "French paradox" is the belief that adding small amounts of red wine to an already healthy diet can be beneficial. Founded on the baffling evidence that the French were enjoying a diet that was high in fats and red meats and yet suffering relatively low rates of heart disease, the belief is that the antioxidants - resveratrol in particular - could help lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.
And while drinking alcohol is far from recommended, the idea that we can get that same goodness from Swanson Superior Herbs Grapeseed Extract is very real.
