What is Grape Seed Extract?
Grapes have been used for their medicinal and nutritional value for thousands of years. Egyptians ate grapes at least 6,000 years ago and ancient Greek philosophers praised the healing power of grapes. European folk healers made an ointment from the sap of grapevines to treat skin and eye diseases. Grape leaves were used to stop bleeding, inflammation and pain. Unripe grapes were used to treat sore throats and dried grapes were used for constipation and thirst. Round, ripe, sweet grapes were used to treat a range of health problems including cancer, cholera, smallpox, nausea, eye infections, and skin, kidney, and liver diseases.
Grape seed extract is prepared from the seed of grapes. Grape seeds contain high concentrations of Vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid, and OPCs and are used in modern day skin care products for their powerful antioxidant properties.
Grape Seed Extract's Benefits for Skin
Grape seed extract is used for a variety of health conditions including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, poor circulation and cancer prevention. In skin care, grape seed extract is used for its powerful antioxidant quality, 20-50 times more powerful than vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. As we age, our bodies produce less antioxidant to combat the aging process. Skin care products containing grape seed extract help you with wound healing and anti-aging. It also helps fight against redness of the skin due to rosacea and atopic contact dermatitis.
