Super Supp: Grapeseed Extract
Lower blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar with this natural supplement
Researchers at the University of California-Davis found that grapeseed extract (GSE) may lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. In one study, adults with pre-hypertension who took 300mg of GSE per day for eight weeks had significantly lower blood pressure and cholesterol. The second study analyzed the effects of GSE’s polyphenol chemicals in people with metabolic syndrome (at high risk for diabetes and heart disease). Those who took GSE an hour before eating a high-cholesterol, high-carb break fast showed much lower levels of blood sugar. A great seed, indeed!
