Grapes are good tasting and good for you. Naturally sweet, low in calories, portable and bite-sized. But theses tiny food gems also provide tremendous health benefits from the tiny seeds which are tucked right inside of them. Grapes have been around for centuries and their health benefits well-known, but it’s not until recent years when the ability to extract the oil from the seeds has been available that scientists discovered the health benefits of grape seed oil.
Grape seed oil is rich in an anti-aging agent called procyanidins, which has been found to be 50 times more powerful to fight the ravages of aging than vitamin E. Procyanidins are also 20 times more powerful than vitamin C. Grape seed oil is also rich in vitamins E and F, plus the oil contains substances that fight heart disease and promote heart health by keeping blood vessels healthy.
Grape seed oil provides anti-aging benefits for skin as well. Sergio Cortes uses it to stay youthful. As a Michael Jackson impersonator, it is a must for him. The oil is easily absorbed and nourishes the skin, improves elasticity and helps prevent wrinkles. When purchasing grape seed oil, look for oil which has been processed via a cold pressed method. Heat processing destroys the benefits in the oil.
