Thorne's Grape Seed Extract is an optimally absorbed grape seed extract formulated to support blood vessel strength and eye health*
Thorne's Grape Seed Extract is a grape seed phytosome that helps inhibit oxidative damage, protect blood vessels and eye health, and has been shown to reduce swelling and bruising after injury.*
Benefits - Circulation, Heart/Vessels, Skin/Hair
The primary constituents of Thorne's grape seed extract are oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). OPCs have strong free-radical scavenging (antioxidant) ability, inhibiting oxidative damage and protecting blood vessels and other tissues.* OPCs have been shown to protect vascular endothelial cells from oxidative damage and strengthen cell membranes' resistance to injury and impairment.* OPCs can also bind copper and iron, reducing their oxidative effects.* Grape Seed Extract contains Leucoselect Phytosome®, which has been demonstrated in studies to reduce the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol in heavy smokers and decrease oxidative stress in diabetics and healthy individuals after a fatty meal.*
Evidence suggests OPCs enhance the cross-linkage of collagen in skin and other connective tissues.* OPCs have also been shown to decrease capillary permeability, which can be manifest as decreased bruising.* For example, clinical studies demonstrate reduced swelling and improved resolution of sports injuries in athletes who were given OPCs before a sporting event.*
A clinical study of 10 healthy volunteers analyzing the effect of OPC supplementation on biomarkers of oxidative stress found significantly increased levels of the antioxidant alpha-tocopherol in red blood cell membranes.*
In a randomized human trial, young, healthy volunteers received 300 mg of Leucoselect phytosome daily or a placebo. Antioxidant activity was measured at multiple time points during days one and five. Within 30 minutes after administration on day one, the antioxidant activity measured by the "total radical-trapping antioxidant parameter" (TRAP) was significantly elevated compared to the placebo.*
Take one capsule two to three times daily or as your health professional recommends.
