Grape seed extract (GSE) is a supplement that you can get in form of capsules that is won by the seeds of gapes. The process of getting the GSE is done by removing, drying and pulverizing the bitter tasting seeds of grapes.
The Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract (GSE) is known for it´s healing and preventing benefits. That´s because the seeds contain a lot of antioxidants, phenolic acids, flavonoids, anthocyanins and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs). You´ve might have seen the name OPC before. But what are oligonomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs)?
OPCs have been reported to demonstrate antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anti carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic actions. Let´s just translate it to the basics: It can free your body from free radicals, fight bacteria and viruses, can fight cancer cells (and prevent a cell to turn into a cancer cell), frees your body from inflammation (note that inflammations are the cause of diseases) and helps in limiting allergic actions.

GSE And Arteries
GSE is a natural blood thinner that leads to a healthy blood flow and can prevent strokes and heart attacks. Due to the immediate process of thinning your blood, it can reduce certain pains, such as head aches and menstrual cramps quickly and is all natural compared to Aspirin.
Personally I came across the OPC supplement benefits due to a friend that told me it reduced her varicose and spider veins. Her gynecologist told her about the benefits when it comes to vein issues and she took them for about three months before she has seen any results. She also told me that it regulates the intensity of her period cramps. After I have done all my researches on OPC supplement benefits I stumbled across before and after reviews of varicose and spider veins and saw that a lot of women are taking this supplement on a daily basis to treat them.
If you have achieved your OPC supplements, the package will probably show you some information about the doses you can take. On my research I came across a daily doses of one pill a day. Don´t take more than what is recommended on the packages to not get your blood too thin. Especially when you take Aspirin or any other blood thinner as well.
After doing all the researches on OPC and which supplements to take, I immediately ordered my first supplement from Amazon. That´s because I wanted to find a supplement that is high in percentage (at least 400mg), non GMO, gluten-free and price friendly. I always like to choose Amazon because of the amount of reviews and ratings I can look up to.
After taking my OPC for about a week, I felt “lighter” if you can say that. I really felt, that my heart could work easier on pushing my blood through my veins. I personally don´t have any vein problems yet so I can´t tell you my experiences on that but I hope to prevent them with the OPC which I take on a daily basis. As I consumed the OPC for about 3 months, I didn’t´t want to live without them anymore and ordered the next ones. I literally ordered 3 packages. One for me, my mom and for my dad, too because of his heart diseases. My mom takes it for the overall health benefits and the anti aging effects as well.
To put it all in a nutshell, I can truly recommend taking OPC on a daily basis and will continue so. Meanwhile, my significant other is taking them, too. It has been two years from now that I have ordered my first package and I will definitely continue to do so. If you got curious, you can click here to see my good to go supply on Amazon.
