Origins of Grape Seed
The Grape is produced by a climbing plant known as Vitis vinifera in botanical terms. Vitis vinifera is a woody plant that produces tendrils reaching to 18m. The plant requires partial shade or full sun to produce Grapes, growing well in soil with a neutral pH. There is an extensive array of cultivars of the Vitis vinifera - 10,000 to be exact - which are used in the wine industry, although only a handful are commonly used. The vine is native to the Mediterranean regions, Central Europe and South-Western Asia, cultivated in South-West Asia between 6,000 - 8,000 years ago. The fruit that grows on the vine is technically a berry but we know it as the Grape.
Benefits of Grape Seed
Grapes have provided a form of traditional medicine for many years. Today, the seed extracted for its herbal properties is derived from the seeds of Grapes suitable for red wine. Grape Seeds contain proanthocyanidins, a polyphenol, which have antioxidative properties to protect our cells from damage and reduce symptoms of ageing within the skin. The polyphenols in question are GADF (Grape Antioxidant Dietary Fibre) and OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complexes). The seed is believed to aid blood circulation and maintain normal cholesterol levels, as well as contributing to the reduction of swelling as a result of the injury.
