Elite Health Tip- Grape Seed Extract

Aug 10, 2018 | Health Tips

Grapes have been known to be beneficial for the WHOLE body for many centuries!  Drink a glass of wine every day for heart benefits (that’s what we’ve been told).  But if you are not a wine fan, or if one glass leads to more bottles, then maybe grape seed extract might be a better way to go for health concerns…

Grape seed extract is one of the most powerful antioxidants available.  This key quality can help improve all around wellness and in turn, it can address many ailments in the body.  Let’s break it down:

Benefits of Grape Seed Extract

  • Great for all things relating to the circulatory/blood system:
    • Boosts circulation/promotes better blood flow
    • Helps regulate blood pressure
    • Supports healthy cholesterol levels
    • Softens the walls of arteries and veins (great for reducing varicose veins)
    • Helps reduce risks for heart dis-ease
    • Can be an effective treatment method for hemorrhoids
  • High in polyphenols– OPCs (Oligomeric Procyanidins)
    • Strengthens the immune system– fights bacteria and fungus
    • Helps reduce edema (swelling due to injury or surgery)
    • Shown to reduce inflammation and/or pain
    • Powerful free radicals scavenger (uncharged molecules that cause oxidative stress in the body)
      • Reduces the effects/signs of aging
    • Improves skin elasticity (excellent binder of collagen fibers which can help improve connective tissue, joints, and bones)
  • Helps boost the efficiency of other supplements when taken together– such as with Vitamins C and E
  • Can reduce bothersome symptoms caused from allergies

As you can see grape seed extract can be extremely useful for various health concerns! Try grape seed oil topically for external skin benefits.  The molecules in the oil are smaller than most oils and have the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin– helping the skin to look rejuvenated and refreshed! It is also light weight and perfect for sensitive and problematic skin.

As always, do what you feel is best for YOUR body– if you aren’t sure, ask your doctor.  We are health ENTHUSIASTS not licensed practitioners.
