Detox action is deeply linked to oxidative stress and our antioxidants status. Grape seeds are one of the richest extracts in antioxidants, particularly thanks to the proanthocyanidins (OPC).

The efficacy of grape seed OPC has been assessed in a preclinical study. After a high-calorie diet, grape seed OPC supplementation has been found to reduce the levels of stress markers in the liver.
