Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins, a bioflavonoid with special molecular structure, is recognized as the most effective natural antioxidant in the world. Grape seed extract is reddish brown powder, slightly airy, astringent, soluble in water and most organic solvents. Experiments showed that the antioxidant capacity of grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins was 50 times of vitamin E and 20 times of vitamin C, and the absorption rate was fast and complete. After 20 minutes, the highest blood concentration was reached, and the half life of metabolism was 7 hours.
It is believed that in the modern life that people pay more and more attention to health, the term “grape seed essence oligomeric proanthocyanidins” is no stranger to us. Today, Xiaobian comes to introduce the 13th efficacy of grape seed essence oligomeric proanthocyanidins specifically.
1. Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
With age, the elastic fibers in the arteries will gradually harden, which is an important cause of hypertension in the elderly. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can increase blood vessel elasticity and lower blood pressure. Patients taking grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins after a period of time, blood pressure will be significantly reduced. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can reduce bad cholesterol, reduce the deposits of bad cholesterol deposited on the walls of blood vessels, and reduce blood pressure by inhibiting the activity of reverse transcriptase.
2. Prevent arteriosclerosis, heart disease and stroke
Heart disease accounts for 50% of the total deaths in the United States every year. Arteriosclerosis is an important factor causing heart disease. Arteriosclerosis can block blood flow, such as angina pectoris or myocardial infarction in the heart, memory loss or stroke in the brain. An antidote against the disease is the grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins, which is effective and safe. It can not only protect the inner wall of blood vessels from damage, but also prevent platelets from clotting and forming blood clots, so as to reduce the risk of stroke.
The anti-cancer effect of grape seeds has been reported in the American journal Science. Long term studies have shown that grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can reduce the incidence rate of various cancers to a maximum extent. One study showed that the cancer rate of people with low vitamin E levels was 11.4 times that of normal people. However, the antioxidant activity of grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins is 50 times that of vitamin E. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can also protect cells that kill cancer cells and prolong the activity time of cancer cells.
4. Inhibit ulcer
The incidence rate of gastric ulcer is very high in modern society. The main reason of gastric ulcer is the acceleration of people’s life rhythm and the increase of mental stress. Living in this state for a long time, the secretion of histamine in the stomach increases accordingly, leading to gastric ulcer. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins reduce histamine, protect gastric wall with gastric mucosa, limit the further erosion of ulcers on the stomach wall, shrink the ulcer surface and help cure ulcers. Other drugs for gastric ulcer mainly treat gastric ulcer by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, which usually leads to reactions such as dyspepsia. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can effectively prevent spontaneous or gastric and duodenal ulcers caused by aspirin, steroids and NSSID drugs.
5. Eliminate arthritis pain and swelling
As early as 1950s, the anti-inflammatory activity of grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins has been noticed. It can inhibit the synthesis and release of many inflammatory factors. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can be selectively combined on connective tissue of joints to prevent joint swelling, help heal damaged tissue and relieve pain, so grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins have a significant effect on various kinds of arthritis.
6. Improve prostatitis
Inflammation is actually a pathological process that may occur in any part of the human body. It is a stress response to trauma, infection and stimulation. It can be manifested in various symptoms, such as redness, pain, fever and dysfunction. Prostatitis is a common disease in men. It is an inflammatory disease caused by prostate dysfunction under the action of prostaglandin PGE2. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can improve prostatitis symptoms and improve the quality of life of prostate patients by inhibiting the release of PGE2.
7. Inhibit allergy
The antianaphylaxis of grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins is related to its antihistamine effect. There are two kinds of cells in the human body called basophils and mast cells, which contain some sensitizing substances. Free radicals act on the cell membranes of these two cells, resulting in cell rupture and release of sensitizing substances. When the body comes into contact with some external allergens, such as pollen, dust, drugs, foreign body proteins (such as fish, shrimp and other seafood), allergic symptoms will occur. Unlike some commonly used anti allergic drugs, grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins are not only effective, but also have no side effects such as lethargy, depression, and so on, which will not affect normal work and life.
8. Protect the brain
Grape seed is the only antioxidant that can provide protection to brain cells through the blood-brain barrier. Therefore, it can prevent Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, it can also stabilize the blood-brain barrier and prevent harmful and toxic substances from entering the brain, so as to protect the brain.
9. Prevention and treatment of asthma and emphysema
Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins are beneficial to patients with asthma and emphysema. Asthma is largely caused by allergic reactions in the bronchus. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can inhibit the production of histamine and other allergic substances, so it is very effective in preventing and treating asthma. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins also reduce symptoms associated with emphysema, such as cough, weakness, mucus and respiratory tract infections.
10. Prevention of cataract and glaucoma
TV fans and computer fans who sit in front of the screen for a long time will suffer very strong radiation damage to their eyes, which is mainly the damage of free radicals to their lens and retina. In the United States, as many as 40000 people are blind due to cataracts every year. Grape seeds eliminate free radicals in the body and prevent the oxidation of free radicals to lens proteins, so as to prevent the occurrence of cataract. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can significantly improve vascular resistance, reduce vascular permeability, thereby inhibiting the leakage of some substances in the blood, and prevent the occurrence of diabetic retinitis.
Glaucoma is caused by high intraocular pressure. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins are easy to bind with collagen, so that free radical damage to collagen can be eliminated by grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins before it can prevent glaucoma. In fact, grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can also repair collagen damaged by free radicals, so grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can also be used to treat glaucoma.
11. Effectively protect teeth and gums
Dental caries is caused by cariogenic bacteria in the mouth. This bacteria can decompose sugar to produce acid, so as to corrode the teeth, form caries holes, expose the dental nerves inside, and make people unbearable pain. However, cariogenic bacteria can play its cariogenic role only by attaching a fibrin complex to the crown or tooth surface. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can bind to this protein fiber, prevent them from binding to form plaque and stick to their teeth, so that the cariogenic bacteria lose their “base area”. Under the washing of saliva in the mouth, bacteria can’t adhere to the teeth for a long time, so they can’t decompose sugar to produce acid to corrode the teeth.
12. Relieve premenstrual tension syndrome
The general symptoms of premenstrual tension syndrome are: menstrual pain, breast swelling, abdominal discomfort, facial edema, uncertain pelvic pain, weight gain, endocrine dysfunction, emotional instability, excitement, irritability, depression and neurological headache. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins can relieve menstrual tension syndrome through anti allergic properties.
13. Anti aging
In European and American countries, grape seed essence oligomeric proanthocyanidins are known as “skin vitamins” and “oral cosmetics”. They are popular beauty products for women of all ages.
The skin is rich in connective tissue, which contains collagen and elastin, which plays an important role in the whole structure of the skin. This integrity depends on a so-called “collagen cross-linking” – collagen forms microfibrils, and the two microfibrils are connected, just like a ladder. Moderate crosslinking is necessary because only in this way can the structural integrity of the skin be maintained. However, free radical oxidation can cause excessive crosslinking, which makes this structure rigid and brittle. On the skin, this excessive crosslinking is manifested as wrinkles and vesicles.
Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins play a dual role here: on the one hand, it can promote the formation of proper cross-linking of collagen. On the other hand, as an effective free radical scavenger, it can prevent the occurrence of “excessive crosslinking”. Thus, it prevents the appearance of skin wrinkles and vesicles and keeps the skin soft and smooth.
What makes the skin elastic is another component of the skin – hard elastin. Hard elastin can be degraded by free radical damage or elastase. The skin lacking hard elastin is loose and weak, making people look old. Free radicals block the production of hard elastin and inhibit its activity. Grape seed extract oligomeric proanthocyanidin scavenging free radicals and improving the health of the skin from inside. This is why grape seed essence oligomeric proanthocyanidins are known as “skin vitamins” and “oral cosmetics”.
