Present in many cultures, the grapes are consumed in fruits, juices and in some recipes where they are used to bring a sweet touch. Being also used in different types of wines, they have established themselves as an important food throughout the world.
Beyond the fruit, some studies have demonstrated the many health benefits contained in grape seeds. They intervene in particular in the prevention of cardiovascular disorders, the slowing down of the aging of the cells and the regeneration of the skin.
Grape seed to prevent cardiovascular disease
Little known, the effects of grape seeds are truly effective in improving cardiovascular function and preventing the onset of certain disorders. Numerous studies have examined the subject in order to establish the link between blood pressure, the accumulation of plaque in the arteries and the grape seeds. In particular, red grapes (which are more effective than white grapes) must be favored because their seeds are rich in ProCyanidolic Oligomers (OPC), they are natural molecules also contained in many fruits, vegetables and cereals known for their antioxidant virtues and their Beneficial action on the cardiovascular system.
These substances also help to fight free radicals and thus avoid the occurrence of brain cell-related damage and the oxidation of cholesterol which causes the formation of plaques in the blood vessels and prevents the blood from circulating properly.
In addition, it has also been shown that grape seed not only treats hypertension because it reduces blood pressure on average by 7% but also reduces the risk of hardening of the arteries.
Grape seeds to slow the aging of the brain
In addition to its benefits in preventing the onset of cardiovascular disease, grape seed is effective in protecting the brain against age related cognitive impairment and strengthening memory-related areas. This action takes place thanks to the polyphenols contained in the OPCs, whose antioxidant properties prevent the interruption of cognition and improve memory. These substances also prevent plaque from accumulating in the arteries and thereby prevent communication in the brain from being interrupted.
It turns out that grape seed promotes the strengthening of the cell structure and the stimulation of the genes responsible for the revitalization of those damaged in the brain.
Grape seeds to regenerate the skin
Grape seeds are concentrated in components that slow down the aging of the skin and regenerate it by solidifying the skin tissues. They revitalize, repair and rejuvenate it to find a fresh and radiant complexion. They owe these benefits to the high antioxidant content of OPCs which represent a panacea for the skin because they bring it many benefits by fighting free radicals.
All the dangers that accelerate the aging of the skin are thus ruled out thanks to the antioxidant action of grape seeds. The bioflavonoids they contain also make it possible to repair the tissues of the epidermis and to accelerate the wound healing by neutralizing the bacteria that proliferate around the wound. By stimulating the regeneration of the lesions, the grape seeds prevent the formation of scar tissue, the skin remains young and radiant beauty.
Numerous studies continue to be carried out to try to define all the benefits of grape seeds on the health and good functioning of the organism.
Beyond the 3 essential actions cited above, here are other properties:
- Protection of the organism from the aggressions of pollution and tobacco
- Purification of blood
- Treatment of sinusitis and arthritis thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties
- Purification of intestines
- Prevention of degenerative diseases
- Fight against hair loss
- Cancer Prevention
- Prevention of visual disorders: cataracts and glaucoma
- Fortification of the lungs and prevention of respiratory diseases
- Strengthening the natural defenses and the immune system
