Grape Seed is a powerful natural antioxidant rich in flavonoids, specifically Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs). OPCs have free radical scavenging properties considered to be more effective than vitamin E. Free radicals arise from natural lifestyle factors such as environmental pollution, exertion and normal metabolic processes. OPCs benefit the body in a number of ways including stabilizing and strengthening of capillary walls as well as improving blood circulation. It helps prevent the breakdown of skin collagen that maintain elastin in the skin and assist in the repair of connective tissues. Grape Seed can also help in maintenance of cardiovascular function and general well-being.
