Healthy aging nutrition
Cardiovascular conditions represent a major health issue worldwide. Today, numerous scientific evidences have demonstrated benefits of high consumption of fruits and vegetables for heart health. Many nutrients are involved in the cardioprotective activities and the most studied are polyphenols. An epidemiological study on 84,000 French adults has shown that a nutritional intake in several classes of polyphenols is related to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Grape seeds are highly rich in proanthocyanidins (OPC). These molecules have been suggested to contribute to the phenomenon known as “French Paradox”, whereby a high consumption of dietary fats among the French does not lead to high instances of heart diseases.
Grape seed extract may help improve poor circulation (chronic venous insufficiency) and high cholesterol plasmatic level.
It’s well known that OPC inhibit LDL oxidation. A recent clinical study proved that OPC reduces atherosclerotic plaques formation. A 33% decrease of plaque score was observed under grape seed extract supplementation compared to placebo. Therefore, an OPC rich grape seed extract is suitable for preventing hypercholesterolemia and its consequences.
