Grape seed extract is literally an extract from whole grape seeds. Proanthocyanidins make up 95% of this extract. These are a class of polyphenols, a phytonutrient found in a wide variety of plants. Proanthocyanidins give food and beverages those mouth puckering and dehydrating sensations that come along with things that are astringent. They are a type of tannin, and provide the drying property we associate with red wine. This phytonutrient is produced by plants as defense mechanisms against pathogens and predators. Passing these along to you makes this nature’s super antioxidant!
Organika’s Grape Seed Extract is formulated with citrus bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are another type of phytonutrient, this time extracted from orange peels. It also has fantastic antioxidant properties. It helps us to absorb the antioxidant Vitamin C and it’s also known for its ability to improve the health of capillaries and veins.
