Grape Seeds = Good 4 U

Grape seeds can be taken in supplement form or you can just eat the real thing. Why bother? Because they contain Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins ("OPCs"). Dr. Mercola (see jump below) explains that grape seeds contain antioxidants that are 20 times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times stronger than Vitamin E. He recommends juicing raw, fresh grapes with their seeds and then drinking the juice.

Valerie Saxion (jump below) explains that grape seeds (or 100-200 mg of OPC):

-inhibit some aspects of the Aging Process

-remove Lipofuscin from and inhibit its formation in the Brain and Heart

-help combat vericose veins (although Dr. Weil prefers Germany's treatment with horse chestnut-seed extract, see jump below)

-help to prevent and reverse Atherosclerosis

-help to prevent abnormal Blood Clotting

-help lower your cholesterol

-improve the strength and elasticity of Blood Vessels

-help to prevent Hemorrhage

-help to prevent Hypertension and lower Blood Pressure

-reduce the risk of blood clots

-increase blood flow

-help to prevent damage to the DNA

-help to prevent Bloodshot Eyes, by increasing the strength of the capillaries, thereby preventing their unwarranted leakage as occurs in bloodshot eyes

-enhance the health of the eyes including being a good treatment for (diabetic) retinopathy

-help to prevent Short-Sightedness

-improve various aspects of Sight

-stimulate Hair growth in persons with Hair Loss, by stimulating the proliferation of hair follicles; this helps combat Male Pattern Baldness.
