GRAPE SEED EXTRACT: 9 Benefits of this Amazing Antioxidant Extract!

Research has long suggested that red wine has protective ingredients. These include antioxidants such as resveratrol, and certain polyphenols and tannins.

An important point in making red wine is that the fermenting ‘must’ – consists of juice, skins, AND seeds. As a result, the higher antioxidant value of red wine, is determined by the constituents extracted from skins AND seeds in addition to those present in the juice.

Proanthocyanidin, a compound found in the seeds of grapes, is said to be far more protective than red wine itself. (A shame – but true!)

Grape seed extract (GSE) is one of the best sources of many polyphenols, and this natural substance is one of the most widely noted sources of proanthocyanidins. Grape seed extract contains antioxidants that may prevent heart disease, brain damage, skin ageing, along with a host of other protective benefits.

Yes, the much-touted health benefits of red wine come from the presence of proanthocyanidins! Taking GSE as a supplement allows you get all the benefits of the of red wine without the hangover and damaging effects of too much alcohol consumption.

After reading this article, you’ll probably stop throwing away the seeds when eating grapes!

An even better choice – would be to include a supplement that contains Grape Seed Extract as part of your daily regimen. Many of our Community members swear by this practice and the positive impact it had had on their overal health and wellbeing.

How this by-product of winemaking could help YOU slow ageing, prevent illness and feel your best!

Why Are Diabetics Not Being Told The TRUTH?

The current treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes is a complete disaster. Plus the current ‘dietary dogma’ that includes a heavy grain-based diet – is driving more and more people to insulin resistance and diabetes.

Why are Diabetics NOT being told the truth? Perhaps because it’s so influenced by financial interests and old dietary dogma. Any successful treatment should include recommending real food without sugar and carbs to naturally lower blood sugar and insulin response.

Putting sugar-rich desserts and cakes on the cover of “Diabetic Living” magazines (top image) is shocking in our opinion. The image here was taken from a simple Google image search and the covers of many of the magazine issues feature carb-heavy meals and desserts. It should be as unthinkable as recommending smoking on the cover of a lung disease magazine.

Some Dietitians are Appalled!

The Case Against STATINS

Many experts argue that Statins, ‘cholesterol-fighting’ drugs – are over-prescribed, with potentially dangerous side effects.

With many of our community members and ‘Healthy Heart Challenge‘ participants looking for answers – we’ve decided to curate topics here on the blog to continue the conversation.

We will aim to add information here on this page along with commentary. Please join in on the conversation too, in the comments.

“In my view, statins are among the most ineffective and dangerous drugs on the market, largely because the doctors who prescribe them haven’t done their homework.”
