What are the health benefits of grapes?
Grapes have been acclaimed for their high nutritional and medicinal values for thousands of years. From Egyptians to ancient Greek philosophers grapes have been praised for their healing properties for at least 6,000 years – usually in the form of wine.
Today, seventy-two million tons of grapes are grown each year worldwide, with most of them being used to produce wine – 7.2 trillion gallons of wine per year. The portability, texture, flavor and variety of grapes have made them a popular finger food in countries all over the world. The potential health benefits of consuming grapes are numerous, with past studies associating them with prevention of cancer,heart disease, high blood pressure and constipation.
The phenolic components of red wine, in particular the Resveratrol and the Resveratrol Derivatives, have been identified as the major agents in helping to maintain a good cardiovascular health and to reduce the risk of neuro-degenerative diseases.
The chemical compounds in grapes, especially oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs) have been touted as powerful antioxidants. Some people believe they could help treat a number of conditions, from heart disease to cancer to aging skin, although scientific evidence is mostly lacking for those conditions.
Studies have shown that taking grape seed extract did substantially increases level of antioxidants in the blood. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals — harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cell death.
The French Paradox
The French Paradox refers to the statement that people in France suffer at relatively low incidence of coronary heart diseases despite their diet being rich in saturated fats. Several epidemiological studies have shown the correlation between this paradox and a regular red wine consumption.
What is exGrape® SEED?
exGrape® SEED is a natural procyanidin extract made exclusively from white grape seeds (no skins or stems) harvested in the south of France.
Using a special water extraction and purification process, a uniquely concentrated and natural form of grape seed extract was created, which contains over 95% of polyphenols (mainly OPC), the key active compounds that have been shown to provide a variety of health benefits. The result is a unique product completely distinct from other brands of grape extract by its high antioxidant value and its high anti-free scavenging activity validated by studies published in scientific journals.
What is VINEATROL®?
VINEATROL® is the only extract which contains the Red Wine Resveratrol Derivatives. Resveratrol is a member of a group of plant compounds called polyphenols. These compounds are thought to have antioxidant properties, protecting the body against the kind of damage linked to increased risk for conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes.
What are free radicals and antioxidants?
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules which can destroy cell membranes and create damages to DNA. Free radicals are the result of internal and environmental stressors such as exercise, smoking, pollution, excess sunlight and even our body’s own normal metabolic process. In fact, free radicals have been implicated in more human diseases, including advanced ageing, cardiovascular diseases and atherosclerosis.
Antioxidants are compounds known to neutralise free radicals and have been demonstrated to bring about beneficial effects on human health. Some antioxidants are produced by the body, while others such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and OPC must be consumed in our daily diet or as a food supplement.
Extensive research suggests that powerful antioxidant from red wine and grape seeds may be beneficial in many areas of health.
