Grape Seed Extract 

Grape Seed Extract is one of the most remarkable nutrient discoveries of the last century due to the powerful anti-oxidant benefits of a bioflavonoid complex know as Procyanidolic Oligomers (PCO).

Procyanidolic Oligomers (PCO) delivers 20 times more potent antioxidants than vitamin C and 50 times more potent antioxidants than vitamin E  - making it a powerful resource against heart disease. The bioflavonoid content of Procyanidolic Oligomers (PCO) help make a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent and reduce cholesterol levels and protect blood-vessel walls.  Blood-vessel linings are more protected from free radicals that might cause damage.  PCOs also help protect against blood-clot formation.  The formation of clots in the blood vessels is an important concern of heart health as blood clots can cause heart attacks and stroke.  A clot that becomes lodged in a partially blocked artery can shut off the blood flow completely, depriving the heart or brain of oxygen.  Controlling excessive clotting tendencies is therefore very important, and Grape Seed Extract has demonstrated remarkable anti-clotting properties.

Vitamin C Enhances Grape Seed Extract:

Together, Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin C have been shown to improve antioxidant status and vascular function.  Vitamin C helps enhance the powerful benefits of Grape Seed Extract by making it easier for the body to absorb.  Grapes  themselves are naturally rich in Vitamin C which adds to their antioxidant power.  Vitamin C is needed for growth and repair of tissues, though Vitamin C is a delicate vitamin.  It is a delicate vitamin because the human body does not store large amounts of Vitamin C, yet is needed daily to maintain proper health.  Hydration also plays an important role in the absorption of Grape Seed Extract.  It is recommended to drink plenty of water, at least eight 8-ounce servings each day to stay properly hydrated.  When the body is properly hydrated, it easily and quickly absorbs vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients. 

Sources of Vitamin C:  

Fresh fruits and vegetables contain a healthy supply of Vitamin C.  Oranges are a good and popular source of Vitamin C, though the following foods have even more:  chili peppers, bell peppers, guavas, kale, broccoli, papaya, strawberries, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, pineapple, kiwi and mangoes.


Testimonials: 

Recently, after several heart attacks, my cardiologist informed me that my coronary arteries were severely blocked and that I would need to have a triple by pass surgery. A friend of mine recently read an article about grape seed extract and suggested that I try it. At this point I was scared to death about surgery and was ready to try anything. After taking GSE for five months my doctor told me my arteries were completely clear. Now I will not go a day without taking this miraculous supplement.”

“Grape seed extract has made a dramatic change in my life. In March of 2014 I became very, very sick and was dealing with extremely high cholesterol over 400 and triglycerides over 700. After taking 300mg per day and improving my diet within two months my cholesterol was down to 207 and my triglycerides to 77.”
