Efficacy and function of Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins

1. Antioxidation

Procyanidins are powerful antioxidants for human body, which can gradually prevent and alleviate the aging of human body. At this point, they are dozens or even hundreds of times more than Vc and VE. However, the effect will be better if procyanidins and VC are taken together.

2. Eye protection

Procyanidins can prevent myopia, relieve eye pressure and prevent lens aging.

3. Soften blood vessels

After taking procyanidins, they can enter the capillaries within half an hour. The effect is very rapid. They can soften blood vessels, reduce blood pressure and accelerate wound healing

It can increase the synthesis of skin collagen and other functions.

4. Moisturize the skin

Procyanidins not only help collagen fibers form cross-linking structure, but also help restore the damage caused by excessive cross-linking caused by injury and free radicals. Excessive crosslinking can suffocate and harden connective tissue, resulting in wrinkles and premature aging of the skin.

5. Improve hypoxia

Procyanidins scavenge free radicals and inhibit the rupture of capillaries and the destruction of surrounding tissues. Procyanidins also improve the state of capillaries and enhance blood circulation to the brain, so the brain can get more oxygen.

Differences between procyanidins and anthocyanins

1. Anthocyanins are glycoside derivatives. Procyanidins are a mixture of biological flavonoids with special molecular structure. Procyanidins can be transformed into anthocyanins in plants


2. Anthocyanin is a water-soluble pigment, which will change color with the acid-base of cell fluid. It is acidic red, alkaline blue, and Procyanidin is colorless.

3. Proanthocyanidins exist in black wolfberry, grape seeds, Ginkgo biloba leaves, cypress, pine bark and other plants.

4. Anthocyanins only exist in blueberry fruits, purple potatoes and grape skins.
