Product Description & Benefits:
Addition of Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins is effective in any anti-oxidant recipe and will provide some anti-inflammatory benefits. Derived from the seeds of both red and white grapes, grape (Vitis vinifera) seed extract , containing 95% proanthocyanidins, is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants and a major free radical scavenger. These flavonoids protect capillary walls and inhibit the enzymes that break down collagen (collagenase),
hyaluronic acid (hyaluronidase), and elastin (elastase). Proanthocyanidins help promote tissue elasticity, help heal injuries, reduce swelling and edema (anti-inflammatory), restore collagen, and improve peripheral circulation. Proanthocyanidins also prevent bruising, strengthen weak blood vessels, and reduce histamine production. In addition all the amazing skin effects of this active, it is effective in promoting hair growth. Grape Seed Anthocyanidins, also called Oligomeric Anthocyanidins and Proantocyanidins, are polyphenolic bioflavonoids. It has been found that these natural chemicals are responsible for the anti-oxidant activity of grape and the "French paradox" - why the French are healthier than many other countries. The anti-inflammatory activity of proanthocyanidins has been attributed to inhibition of lipoxygenase activity and interference with leukocyte migration. Proanthocyanidins are also found in other plant materials, like blackberry leaves and cat's claw. In the case of maritime pine bark, the extract has been named pycnogenol and made popular by marketing, but properties and benefits are very similar for all anthocyanidins.
