Grape seed extract ( GSE ) is an industrial derivative of grape seeds. It is rich in antioxidants and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes and has been linked to a wide range of possible health benefits.
Grape seed extract is a water-soluble flavonoid or polyphenol with complex powerful antioxidant properties.
As an antioxidant, grape seed is thought to possibly support the following: a healthy cardiovascular system, a healthy immune response, a healthy vascular system, healthy fluid balance and healthy vision. Research shows that antioxidants like grape seed, pycnogenol and green tea are generally 10-100 times more powerful than common nutrient antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.
