Grape Seed Extract has been the focus of much animal and human research over the last couple of decades. Researchers have noted that grape seed extract increases levels of antioxidants in your blood.
Antioxidants are substances that neutralise free radicals – those potentially harmful compounds in your body that can damage your DNA and destroy cells.
But scientists have found that GSE can do much more. Through research, grape seed extract is racking up a long list of potential benefits for helping to support your:
- Cardiovascular health, including healthy blood pressure already in the normal range
- Healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range
- Healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range
- Mental sharpness as you age
- Healthy, normal leg circulation
- Normal cellular growth and development
- Bone formation and strength
- Normal wound healing
- Normal inflammatory response
- Night vision
- Healthy teeth
- Youthful-looking skin
Manufactured by Polyphenolics, Dr Mercola's Blood Pressure Support contains MegaNatural®-BP – a patented grape seed extract with clinically researched benefits.
Polyphenolics can proudly proclaim these benefits of their grape seed extract:
- Clinically researched – Their formula is backed by two placebo-controlled human trials showing it supports blood pressure already within the normal range. Plus, research shows that ordinary grape seed extract does NOT have this same effect!
- Greater activity – Identifies and “captures” the most beneficial molecular structures that provides 90 to 95% total polyphenols – the biologically active constituents.
- Improved bioavailability – Because their grape seed is selectively extracted for its beneficial polyphenols, you get greater absorption and bioavailability compared to other grape seed extracts.
- Sustainable and environmentally friendly industry – It’s a perfect combo: The juice from the grapes is used to make wine, and the unfermented grape seeds are used for their unique grape seed extract.
- Non-toxic and free of harsh chemicals – Every batch is rigorously tested for heavy metals, pesticides and microbiological contaminants to ensure purity and safety – something that many less costly imports can’t always claim!
- No Solvents are used in extraction – Many extracts use harsh synthetic solvents to help generate a larger yield when extracting compounds from plants. The process used to extract their GSE is gentle and uses only water, ensuring the beneficial compounds stay intact and avoiding the possibility of any residual solvent being left in the final product.
- Free of Magnesium Stearate – A non-nutritive processing aid used in manufacturing to help the powder flow freely through the encapsulating machine, the majority of GSE products on the market contain this ingredient that itself could theoretically affect your blood pressure.
- Maintains total control over entire manufacturing process – From raw material procurement to final extraction, their manufacturer maintains a watchful eye to ensure quality and consistency of end product.
