are very beneficial as a fruit as they contain lots of vitamin C as well as
also flavonoids, which are potent antioxidants. Grape seeds in particular are
often extracted as these provide one of the most potent antioxidants found in
nature. Grape seed extract contains a special class of water-soluble
bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins. Studies have shown the antioxidant
activity of these specific bioflavonoids is 20 to 50 times greater than
Beta-Carotene or Vitamins C and E at scavenging specific free radicals.
Grape seed extract is derived from the small
seeds (and occasionally the skins) of red grapes. Used extensively in Europe,
grape seed extract is rich in flavonoids, phytochemicals that have antioxidant
properties some consider even greater than vitamin C and vitamin E.
Antioxidants are believed to prevent and control numerous ailments by
safeguarding cells against the ravages of unstable oxygen molecules called free
radicals. The most valuable flavonoids in
grape seed extract are procyanidolic oligomers (also known as
proanthocyanidins), commonly called PCOs. Beyond their antioxidant powers, Studies
have shown that PCOs in grape seed extract are as much as 50 times more potent
than those in Vitamin E and up to 20 times more potent than PCOs in Vitamin C.
Grape Seed Extract is commonly
used for the antioxidant properties it contains (radical scavanger), collagen
protection. It also provides astringent and restorative effects.
