Grape Seed Extract is an herb that helps to protect cells from free radical damage while promoting healthy circulation. This is known as a powerful antioxidant similar in effect to the ever popular and patented Pycnogenol, but far less expensive. Grape Seed Extract is rich in polyphenols, a beneficial compound shown as being high in antioxidants that helps to improve circulation.

People have been using grapes since ancient times not only for eating and drinking but for medicinal purposes as well. Different parts of the plant including the grapes themselves, the leaves, and the stems, have been used. It was not until the 1970’s when a French biochemist isolated from grape seed the substance called oligomeric proanthocyandin (OPC). This substance was said to improve blood circulation and to have some protective properties against heart disease. Experimental data does suggest that grape seed also has anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties and prevents the formation of plaque in the arteries. All of this information is great for cardiovascular health, but there have been no findings to indicate that it can aid in weight loss or exercise.

However, grape seed extract may cause excessive bleeding in those taking blood thinners. Additionally, it is vital that you not take grape seed extract if you are allergic to grapes. Other concerns include that it may cause dizziness or nausea, it may interfere with cholesterol lowering drugs, and it can interact with other herbs changing the way they are absorbed.
