Description : Grape Seed contains bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins, which greatly enhance Vitamin C activity to strengthen cell membranes and protect them from oxidation damage. Grape Seed’s antioxidant properties work to strengthen capillaries, by protecting against free radicals and enhancing collagen production (a protein fiber necessary for cell growth and repair). It helps with allergies by inhibiting the release of histamines, and Grape Seed’s bioflavonoids have an anti-inflammatory effect, which inhibit the release of certain enzymes that promote inflammation.
