Grape skin extract are industrial derivatives from whole grape seeds that have a great concentration of vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid, and OPCs. Typically, the commercial opportunity of extracting grape seed powder constituents has been for chemicals known as polyphenols, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins recognized as antioxidants.
Grape skin extract is rich in Oligomers Procyanidin Complexes (OPC) , which is a powerful antioxidant. In addition to the ultra rich potence of over 20 times higher than Vitamin C. Grape skin extract powder is also 50 times better than Vitamin E. Grape skin extract powder helps to strengthen the immune system, and also slowdown the aging process, which is of very high market value. Procyanidin B2, which is the most active compound to neutralize free radicals that cause aging, is available only in Grape Seed.
In Europe, OPC from grape skin extract powder proanthocyanidins has been adopted and used for several decades as a safe and effective compound. Grape skin extract powder has no record of any acute or chronic toxicity, no harmful reaction even under very high dosage. For these reasons, grape skin extract powder proanthocyanidins has become a new star in the food supplement market.
1. Anti-oxidation and scavenging free radicals
Anthocyanins belong to the biological flavonoid material, and the most important physiological activity of the flavonoids is free radical scavenging ability and antioxidant capacity. Studies have shown that anthocyanins are the most effective antioxidants and the most potent free radical scavengers found by humans today. The antioxidant properties of anthocyanins are 50 times higher than that of VE and 20 times higher than that of VC.
2. Anti-mutation function
The role of anthocyanins not only makes the plants show colorful colors, but also has the activity to reduce the activity of the enzyme, anti-mutation and other health care function of active molecules. Studies have shown that a certain anthocyanin concentration of the extract can effectively prevent the occurrence of cancer at different stages, but anthocyanin individual role is uncertain, in part because of other phenolic substances and other stable components after the biological determination of anthocyanin Easy to degrade.
3. Application in food
Anthocyanins in food not only as a nutritional fortifier, but also as a food preservative instead of benzoic acid and other synthetic preservatives, and can be used as food colorants used in the usual drinks and food, in line with people on food additives natural, safe, The general requirement for health.
