Oxidants inside your body can break down your cells and tissues when left unchecked. Grapine is an antioxidant and a free-radical fighter that has been found in laboratory studies to be more powerful than vitamins E or C and works with many essential nutrients..
Is it safe?
Grapine has been tested and researched for the last 30 years in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Switzerland and the United States. The chemical structure, effects and absence of toxicity have been confirmed through this research.

Grapine is a remarkable herbal extract with a unique primary ingredient known as proanthocyanidin. It is a member of the flavonoid family, which is found in many plants as well as red wine. Commercially available sources of proanthocyanidolic oligomers include extracts from grape seeds and the pine bark. Studies show that the grape seed extracts are substantially more potent and effective than the extract of pine bark.
Grapine - Antioxidant Hero
Explorers and settlers in the Americas often owed their lives to the assistance of friendly Indians, who knew the local medicinal herbs. Such was the case with the French explorer who in 1535 tried to sail up the St. Lawrence River in Canada at the beginning of winter. His ship became trapped in ice and before long the crew was reduced to a diet of salt pork and biscuits.
Without fresh fruits and vegetables, the crew developed scurvy and 25 of its 110 members died before friendly Indians came to their assistance. The Indians treated them with a tea made from pine needles and bark.
In testing it was found that only a few species contain a highly active substance called proanthocyanidins. which are closely related to bioflavonoids. One was the pine tree, which the Indians used and another was the French maritime pine.
Grapine is one of the most powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers known. It is 50 times more powerful than vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than vitamin C. It enhances the effectiveness of other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E. selenium and beta carotene. Grapine regenerates vitamin E after it has been oxidized by free radicals and helps to transport vitamin C where it is needed in the body.
One of the factors that makes Grapine so valuable is that it is water soluble. It is easily absorbed into the body and stays in the blood for 72 hours. It even crosses the blood brain barrier meaning it can help protect the brain and central nervous system.
Clinical trials have shown that Grapine exhibits many of the same benefits as bioflavonoids.
Grapine inhibits the enzymes that break down collagen the "glue" that holds the cells of the body together. It can be used to "tune-up" tissues.
The proanthocyanidins are found in strawberries, apples, grapeseeds, vegetables, beans, grapes and cranberries in small quantities. They are one of the substances that helps impart an astringent taste to foods. One could benefit from these foods. Load up the body with these protective factors to help it heal.
