The Grapeseed Extract formula provides a blend of standardized proanthocyanidins found in grapeseed and skins. Grapeseed extract helps to maintain healthy platelet function and other aspects of platelet responses, and protects the central nervous system from reactive oxygen species. This whole grape extract contains a spectrum of polyphenols that are naturally contained in red wine such as proanthocyanidins, anthocyanin's, flavonoids, etc. This blend also provides standardized trans-resveratrol, the polyphenol in red wine that has shown so many health benefits. and trans-pterostilbene, which researchers have found works synergistically with resveratrol to activate one's "longevity genes." Like resveratrol, pterostilbene belongs to a class of compounds called phytoalexins, which are naturally produced by plants when under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi. Findings from published scientific literature indicate that resveratrol may be the most effective compound for maintaining optimal health and promoting longevity. Research funded by Life Extension showed that a combination of low-dose (20 mg) resveratrol plus grapeseed extract mimicked many of the favorable gene expression changes seen in calorie-restricted animals.
- GOODNESS, GRAPESEED – Looking for a superstar fruit? Grapes are a strong contender. Not only do they give us wine, but in their unfermented form they’re packed with antioxidants and other compounds that do us a world of good. We’ve been in love with grapes for a while—in fact, the specific Masquelier’s grapeseed extract in this formula was first developed in 1947!
- CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH – The powerful antioxidant extracts produced from grapeseed have been shown to help maintain already-healthy blood pressure levels and heart rate. They also promote cellular health by quenching free radicals at the cellular level.
- AGE LIKE FINE WINE – If you’ve ever heard that red wine can be good for you, the reason is a grape compound called resveratrol. But you’d have to consume dozens of glasses to get the benefits of the trans-resveratrol in this formula. Studies show that resveratrol can help you live longer by triggering favorable gene expression—what you can call your “longevity genes.”
