Antioxidants from Concord Grape Seeds for Healthy Immune Function Support and Overall Health
As we approach the end of the “Sophomore Year of COVID-19”, it’s impossible to deny that many Americans have reconsidered their lifestyles in order to achieve not only protection from the Coronavirus, but to generally stop the spread of germs and strengthen their immune systems. Even those who never considered themselves “health conscious” are now looking for easy ways to boost their immunity. This opens up a whole new market of consumers who are more open to and actively seeking a healthier diet and lifestyle.
A healthy immune system can easily be supported by a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods rich in antioxidants, like the oligomeric proanthocyanins and polyphenols found in Royal Grapeseed’s Concord Grapeseed products. Antioxidants work by destroying free radicals in the body, allowing your cells and tissues to function at their strongest levels. Inflammation in the body can be caused by too many free radicals, which can cause pain and discomfort, weaken your cells, and make you more susceptible to bacteria and viruses, such as the Coronavirus. In general, a body with little to no free radicals is a body that swiftly and effectively fights illnesses and ailments of all kinds.
Dark fruits are common sources of antioxidants. Concord grapes fall into this category, and many do not realize that the seeds of these grapes arguably hold the most antioxidant value. Compared to red and white wine grapes, Concord Grapes have a deep, almost black, skin, and a much bigger seed. Royal Grapeseed uses only grape seeds from varietal Concord grapes, grown in centuries old vineyards in Upstate New York. Our Grapeseeds come from juice grapes, not wine grapes, so no fermentation is occurring and our grape seeds are sulfite free. We clean and dry the grapeseeds using only water and gentle heat, the same day the grapes leave the vineyard and are pressed for juice. We don’t use any chemicals or further refining in our proprietary proess. With Royal Grapeseed, the freshness and quality is unmatched.
