According to the University of Rochester, grape seed extract is a versatile plant of the Pharmacopeia herb. It is used as an ingredient in skin care healing salves in the cosmetic industry and available as an antioxidant supplement (Resveratrol) in health food stores. Resveratrol is consumed in red wine and is a result of processed red grapes. Grape seed flavonoids named Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin (OPC) are prominently used as a seasonal allergy supplement, and also similarly called an antioxidant. Contrary to scientific statements, there are no clinical trials or double blind studies that have used OPC’s successfully for 30 years. Speak with your nutritional practitioner for a weight-to-milligram ratio if your family wants to take advantage of OPC benefits. Besides lowering histamine levels, OPC also protects the blood vessels and cardiovascular system by stopping the breakdown of vascular collagen. OPC that is used as a prevention supplement reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes while additional studies also show a lowering risk of certain cancers.
