    Our proanthocyanidin-rich formula protects sensitive tissues and organ systems throughout the body from disease-causing free radicals.

    Grape seed extract is a rich bioflavonoid which is used for fighting free radicals and maintaining capillary health. It is very similar to pine bark extract, with a high content of proanthocyanidins. Free radicals do damage in the capillaries in two ways:

    1. by inactivating a compound called 1‑antitripsin, whose role is to restrain the enzymes that break down collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid; and
    2. by turning the fats in the cell membranes rancid (lipid peroxidation).

    Proanthocyanidins protect both the 1‑antitripsin and the lipids by neutralizing the specific types of free radicals most likely to damage them, and may also directly inhibit the damaging enzymes. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid make up much of the inner wall and supporting matrix of the capillaries; when they are in good shape, the capillaries stretch to let red blood cells through the tight places and do not let the fluids in the blood leak out.
