Scientists became interested in proanthocyanidins and resveratrol in the early 1990s when its presence was discovered in red wine leading to speculations that it might explain the so-called "French Paradox" - low heart disease rates among the French who consume high-fat diets and drink a lot of red wine. Scientific interest in these two compounds has continued to grow since then as studies have shown they may have a host of health benefits.
Proanthocyanidins (PAs), are phytochemicals, which are non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective properties. PAs are very powerful immune supportive antioxidants that remove harmful free oxygen radicals from cells. Studies indicate that antioxidant power of PAs is 20 times higher than that of vitamin C and 50 times higher than vitamin E. These findings do not make PAs better antioxidants than vitamins C and E and does not mean they replace them. Instead they highlight the importance of a variety of antioxidant types. The role of PAs should not be underestimated, as research further suggests that these compounds are beneficial in many areas of health because of their ability to bond with collagen, promoting youthful skin, cell health, elasticity, and flexibility. Other studies have shown that PAs help protect the body from UV rays damage, improve flexibility in joints, arteries, and body tissues such as the heart, and improve blood circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins.
Resveratrol is also a phytochemical, or non-nutritive plant chemical that has protective properties. Resveratrol is most known for its strong immune supportive antioxidant properties. Studies have also shown links to healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels. It has been tagged the antiaging compound after animal studies suggested an increased lifespan and brain cell protection. Coupled with additional animal studies that show potential protective influences on joint cartilage and anti-inflammatory influences, resveratrol remains a strong candidate for further study!

My girlfriends have all been going crazy over Resveratrol... in pills, in face creams, eye serums ect. Something to do with aging.... or should I say lack thereof. Anyway, your product has a great combo of Resveratrol and all the grape extracts. As always your price points and shipping time is the best. Thanks much.
