by Mitamins Team

This article discusses about the uses and benefits of grape seed extract. The article explains how grape seed extract benefits us in treating cardiovascular diseases, allergies, cataracts, and providing skin care.

Grape seed extract is a natural source of a powerful antioxidant called OPC. It is twenty and fifty times more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E respectively. In addition, grape seed extract is good for brain support and eye health as it possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties besides being an environmentally friendly antioxidant.

Grape seed extract can support the treatment of aging by stopping the onset of degenerative mental diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, and also by slowing down the outer aging process. Grape seed extract is also used in the treatment of cancer by suppressing tumor growth and providing protection against the effects of internal and external stresses. Another benefit of grape seed extract is that it is helpful in the treatment of fibromyalgia, a disorder known by its chronic pain in the muscles.

Grape seed extract has been known to help in the treatment of the following health concerns.

Treatment of High Cholesterol and Heart Disease

Grape seed extract has the ability to lower cholesterol levels and thereby support heart health. The powerful antioxidants in grape seed extract helps improve the strength of blood vessels and increasing blood flow to help prevent heart disease and stroke. It also reduces the risk of atherosclerosis or development of plaques in the blood vessels.

Treatment of Aging and Skincare

The benefits of grape seed extract also include its excellent skincare properties. Grape seed extract helps to bind to collagen much better than Vitamin C and Vitamin E. This promotes youthful skin, healthy cells, cellular elasticity, flexibility, and generally helps in the treatment of aging. For this reason, gape seed extract is one of the most effective ingredients in skincare and spa treatments, and is used in many beauty creams.

Grape seed extract is often used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. The presence of flavonoids in grape seed extract can prevent allergic reactions that can cause eczema. Grape seed extract also helps in restoring the normal functioning of the tissues.

Treatment of Allergies

Grape seed extract works as a natural antihistamine and helps in the treatment of a number of allergies. It also helps in controlling the symptoms of allergic reactions, such as sneezing and chest congestion. Grape seed extract can also help in the treatment of endometriosis, a menstrual disorder. The release of prostaglandins during endometriosis generates inflammation and pain.

Support in Eye Health

Grape seed extract can help regulate the blood flow in eyes and so prevent and treat various eye health concerns. Grape seed extract helps in preventing free-radical damage, a leading cause of macular degeneration and cataracts, the most common causes of blindness in older people.
