Karuna Grape Seed Extract 60c contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins. * Flavonoids (GSFs), upon which this extract is standardized. * GSFs depress the activity of collagenase, the enzyme that degrades collagen, and have tonic effects on the capillaries and veins. * GSFs have been shown by some studies to be the protective agents in wine that provide wine-drinking populations with a conspicuously low incidence of heart problems, in spite of diets rich in saturated fats and cholesterol. * GSFs have been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol oxidation while inhibiting the superoxide-generating enzyme, xanthine oxidase. * A water extraction method of concentrating the grape seeds assures that no solvent residues remain after processing.
