Function and Uses:
Proanthocyanidins protect against oxidative damage and could reduce the damage caused by tobacco smoking, pollution and free radical form in our body during normal metabolism.
Many studies have shown that proanthocyanidins help to prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and improve fat metabolism. The inhibitory action against LDL cholesterol appears to increase with the degree of polymerization of the proanthocyanidin molecules. Proanthocyanidins may prevent cardiovascular disease by reducing the risk associated with high blood cholesterol. Tests with rabbits showed that an extract of grape seed proanthocyanidins significantly reduced the development of aortic atherosclerosis. Grape seed proanthocyanidins have a cardioprotective effect and protect the heart against myocardial injuries induced by isoproterenol, a drug used as an inhaled aerosol to treat asthma.
Anti-Cancer Studies have shown that proanthocyanidins have anti-cancer and anti-tumour activity. The study by entitled Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins Induce Apoptosis and Inhibit Metastasis of Highly Metastatic Breast Carcinoma Cells (Carcinogenesis. 2006 August) concluded that grape seed proanthocyanidins may possess chemotherapeutic activity against breast cancer.
Anti-Allergic Proanthocyanidins inhibit enzymes that produce histamine and help to ease of allergies.
