Grape seed extract useful for so much.
Red grape seed shown to improve atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disorders.
Recent research published in the Journal of Medicinal Food reveals that red grape seed extract greatly improves lipid profiles and lowers the damaged (oxidised) low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in patients with hyperlipidemia. These damaged lipids are easily deposited onto the inner walls of blood vessels, leading to atherosclerosis. Hyperlipidemia also leads to induction of oxidative stress and formation of more plaques inside blood vessels. These lipid-lowering effects were seen with 200 mg of the grape seed extract per day.
