Since the moment you were born your heart has been beating away faithfully. Your heart was pumping away on your first day at school, on your first date, and at every other significant event in your life.
If you're, say, fifty years old then your heart will have beaten almost 2 billion times. Day in, day out … 24/7. No man made machine can boast that level of reliability.
Amazingly your heart is at the center of a network of arteries, veins and capillaries which are around 100,000 miles long.
The job of the blood your heart pumps is to carry oxygen, hormones and nutrients to cells; to transport carbon dioxide back to the lungs so it can be exhaled; and to transport waste products to the liver and kidneys so they can be expelled.
In short, a healthy heart is fundamental to having the best life you can. Exercise, nutrition, energy, mobility … they all depend on a properly functioning heart.
And the great news for most folks is … you’re in control.
Grapeseed OPC and Cardio Health For Seniors.
Like any other muscle, your heart will naturally deteriorate with age.
There are a host of heart-related diseases we need to guard against. Such as chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, hypertension, endothelial dysfunction, arteriosclerosis, arterial plaque and the effects of cholesterol on blood flow.
Your doctor will tell you that maintaining a healthy weight, eating nutritious foods and reasonable exercise are the foundation for a healthy heart.
But researchers around the world have confirmed that the molecules found in grape seeds can give you a head start in protecting your cardiovascular function.
These molecules include polyphenols, such as resveratrol, plus OPC Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complexes, which are powerful antioxidants.
Those polyphenols and antioxidants are important because they have the potential to protect your heart from some of the triggers for aging. Those triggers are called 'free radicals'. They are dysfunctional electrons caused by factors like processed foods, sugar, pollution and even cigarette smoke.
Researchers have proved that the OPC oligomeric procyanidins in grapeseeds have 20 times more potency than is found in Vitamin E, and 50 times greater than in Vitamin C.
“The muscadine is America’s strongest source of cardio-friendly grape antioxidants and polyphenols. Muscadine grapeseed has about 30x more antioxidant power than green tea.”
