Feature summary

One important subgroup of polyphenols in grape seed are leucoanthocyanins or proanthocyanidins. These flavonoids help to strengthen blood vessels, increasing the tone and elasticity of capillary walls, enhance the effect of vitamin C, and help to quench free radicals. 

That is why grape seed leucoanthocyanins or proanthocyanidins may be useful in a number of disorders. They improve the biochemical properties of blood vessels, and help different types of vascular disorders including capillary fragility, peripheral chronic venous insufficiency and microangiopathy of the retina. 

Grape Seed Phytosome may help allergy sufferers because the leucoanthocyanins exert an inhibiting effect on histamine release, suppressing allergy symptoms. 

Grape Seed Phytosome has been shown to be helpful against mild and severe artherosclerosis when rabbits were fed a cholesterol-rich diet. It also helped to protect rabbit heart against ischemica/reperfusion injury. 

Phytosomes are herbal substances that are combined with phosphatidylcholine molecules to enhance absorption and bioavailability. This molecule is both water- and fat-soluble. Cutting edge phytosome technology is taking absorption and bioavailability to another level. Grape Seed Phytosome is standardized to contain 85 to 95% leucoanthocyanins (proanthocyanidins), bound to phosphatidylcholine from lecithin.
