Grape seeds contain lipid, protein, carbohydrates, polyphenols. While polyphenols are found in all plants, their active component - proanthocyanidin (PCO) - is particularly concentrated in grape skins and grape seeds. Red wine contain a high concentrations of polyphenols: in comparison to red wine, white wine has a much lower antioxidant capacity. Thatís why Silvií59 is made from red grapes. Grape seed extract is known as a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from premature aging, disease, and decay. Scientific studies have shown that the antioxidant power of proanthocyanidins is 20 times greater than vitamin E and 50 times greater than vitamin C. Extensive research suggests that grape seed extract is beneficial in many areas of health because of its antioxidant effect to bond with collagen, promoting youthful skin, cell health, elasticity, and flexibility. Proanthocyanidins also help to protect the body from sun damage, to improve vision, to improve flexibility in joints, arteries, and body tissues such as the heart, and to improve blood circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins. Grape juice extract contains significant amounts of tannins, vitamins and fruit acids, endowing it with brightening, protective and mildly exfoliative and revitalizing properties. Last November David Sinclair, associate professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School, found in a study that red wine helps fighting killer medical conditions" like heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Thatís why Italians live 42% longer than Americans and are slimmer. The key is Resveratrol located inside the skin of the grape. Resveratrol contains three "booster" antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid, Quercetin and Acetyl-L-Carnitine which combine to protect your brain, liver, eyesight and long- term memory and concentration.read more about Silvi '59 »
