Say ‘Goodbye’ to Varicose Veins
May 10, 2023
Grapes, one of the most popular and widely consumed fruits in the world, are usually eaten fresh or processed into various desserts and of course, wine! However, the wonderful part of grapes is that they are not only sweet and juicy but also packed with nutrients. The nutrients have been scientifically studied and researched by many. They later discovered that the fruits are great and that the active ingredient extracted from grape seed also gives exceptional health benefits that one may not realize coming from a tiny seed from the grape!
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) are the active ingredient found in grape seeds. It belongs to the group of bioflavonoids. What benefits does the OPC give?
Benefits of OPC
✔ Super antioxidant – 20x stronger than vitamin C and 50x stronger than vitamin E
✔ Enhance blood circulation
✔ Improve skin complexion
✔ Increase flexibility and strength of blood vessels and skin layers
What happens if we have poor blood circulation?
Initially, we may have the symptoms of cold feet, numbness, skin discoloration, and tingling sensation. Over time, we may see signs of varicose veins appearing, especially around the legs. Varicose veins are bulging, swollen and twisted superficial veins around the legs. Due to poor blood circulation and the blood failing to flow back properly to the heart, it congests and expands the blood vessels and resulting in what we know as varicose veins. Untreated varicose veins may lead to serious complications, including bleeding, eczema, and ulceration.
How do antioxidants play a role?
Free radicals can destroy the opening – closing valves of the blood vessels and damage the veins further from blood congestion. Hence, grape seed extract provides the benefits as a super antioxidant and significantly improves blood circulation. OPCs in grape seed extract helps to strengthen collagen structure and creates a stronger blood vessel wall to reduce leaking and burst, as seen in varicose vein. Intake of 150mg OPC daily for a month has been shown to improve capillary resistance and symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency, including cramps and swelling in lower limbs. OPCs are an excellent microvascular protector in treating early-stage varicose vein.
Besides reducing varicose veins, grape seed extract also helps to maintain skin integrity by enhancing the blood flow towards the skin to deliver oxygen and nutrients to keep healthy skin; and protect from pre-mature skin aging by maintaining collagen strength.
Tips to prevent varicose veins:
- Exercise to improve blood circulation.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Avoid standing or sitting for long periods, especially sitting cross-legged.
- Practice the habit of brisk walking alternating with standing.
- Consume food or supplement that provide antioxidant properties and improve blood circulation.
