Grape seeds: a powerful antioxidant

Grape seeds contain procyanidins: powerful antioxidants that provide protection against free radicals, the unstable atoms that damage the cells in our body and can cause cancer, immune deficiencies and premature skin aging.

Grape seeds also support the stability of collagen and elastin, two proteins that give the skin its smooth and soft appearance.

They also contain components that facilitate their transport across all types of cell membranes, including the membranes that protect the brain. They could therefore help to protect against the damage caused to cell membranes by free radicals.
