Derived from the ground seed of red grapes, Grapeseed is high in antioxidants and it is thought to contain up to fifty times more than vitamin C and twenty times more than vitamin E. Antioxidants help our bodies fight against something called free radicals. These free radicals have been linked to contributing towards certain diseases such as cancers. Antioxidants can also help with boosting our immune system, which is our body's first line of defence when it comes to fighting illness and helps protect against heart disease. One of these antioxidants includes carotenoids, which are known to be particularly useful for protecting the retina of the eye and improving eye sight. Thus grapeseed could be helpful in the prevention of age macular degeneration (AMD), a degenerative eye disorder. When cholesterol is oxidised, as a result of free radicals, it attaches itself to artery walls and causes problems in the body such as atherosclerosis, hardening of the artery walls. Flavonoids, which are found naturally in the body, could help to prevent oxidation of LDL, known as 'bad' cholesterol. Neulife Grapeseed contains high levels of these flavonoids, so could be useful with people who have high cholesterol levels. It is thought that Grapeseed also contains high levels of antihistamines, which could help the body fight general allergies and seasonal ones such as hayfever. A component contained within Grapeseed, called catechins, helps to reduce the severity of allergic responses in the body, by inhibiting the enzymes involved in the formation of histamines, which cause the symptoms associated with allergic reactions such as sneezing and swelling.
