Grape seed extract kills colon cancer?
Grape seed extract for colon cancer?
Recent research published in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that red grape seed extract triggers cell death in human colon cancer cells through an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) and intracellular calcium in the cancer cells. The influx of calcium and generation of ROS lead to programmed cell death (apoptosis) of the cancer cells.
Another reason we use Activin Red Grape Seed Extract.
