Resveratrol – Grape Seed Extract for your skin and body

Resveratrol, grape seed extract is a powerful anti-oxidant. Grape seeds are waste products of the wine and grape juice industry.

To create a potent fertilizer for the next wine crop, grape seeds are crushed into an extract, along with parts of the grapevine that were not removed during the picking process. Grape seed extract contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates, polyphenols, and oligometric proathocyanidins (OPCs).It has multifactorial health benefits, including skin rejuvenation.

Polyphenols have antioxidant properties. They protect skin from free radicals and oxidative damage. The polyphenols found in grape seed extract are 20-50 times more powerful than those of vitamin C and vitamin E.

It provides strong anti-inflammatory benefits for the skin.

It helps to decreas rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

Polyphenols can also speed up wound healing, and inhibit the body’s secretion of histamine, which results in a dampening of allergic skin responses.OPCs protect the skin from premature aging by inhibiting the breakdown of collagen. Collagen production in the skin decreases with age, and without it the skin becomes dry, wrinkled, and discolored. The more collagen you build, the more elasticity and protection from the sun your skin will have, and more youthful it will appear. Collagen also helps skin stay firm, supple, and moisturized. At Unique Verve we offer Active Vitamin Facials (Environ’s Signature Facial) which help to stimulate and rebuild collagen and elastin protein fibers in the skin.
Another benefit of grape seed extract is its ability to decrease melasma (also called chloasma), a hyperpigmentation condition in which the skin becomes brown and blotchy, sometimes in butterfly appearance. Other potential benefits of grape seed extract include improved vision and joint flexibility, better blood sugar control, decreased risk of cardiovascular problems. Grape seed extract may also decrease the risk of cancer, specifically colon cancer.
Grape seed extract is available as a supplement – the usual dose is around 100 milligrams – in the form of a capsule, liquid, or tablet.
