And grapes have been melted for centuries not only for wine. Almost every part of the vine can be consumed. Apart from its nutritional properties, it is also known for its powerful healing effects. Even in antiquity, vines are used to make ointments and creams for the treatment of skin and eye diseases. Vine leaves are used to heal injuries and inflammatory conditions. Grapes were used in a sore throat, and raisins – in constipation and intestinal problems. EGS contains a high concentration (95%) of a unique type of antioxidant, called oligomeric proanthocyanidins. They help the body produce glutathione, a major antioxidant that protects DNA and strengthens the immune system. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins increase intracellular levels of vitamin C and strengthen capillaries, thereby improving the circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body. Clinical studies have shown that they are sometimes stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E. The grape seed extract helps the normal circulation of blood to small peripheral blood vessels (capillaries). It is one of the few antioxidants that pass through the walls of brain cells and blood vessels and protect nerve tissue. They have the specific ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier.
The extract makes the blood vessels elastic, and this leads to a reduction in blood pressure. EGG prevents platelet and thrombus formation in the arteries, improves the passage of blood vessels, strengthens their walls and prevents the formation of varicose veins and cracked capillaries. Protecting collagen in the soft tissue of the joints and skin, grape seed extract helps to heal skin wounds more quickly by stimulating faster regeneration of injured blood vessels. Due to its strong antioxidant properties, grape seed slows down the aging of the skin
