Grapes are consumed around the world, they are an excellent source of healthy compounds. Wine has even been discovered to hold protective antioxidant properties if consumed in small quantities based on the “French Paradox.” When it comes to Cancer, the seeds of the grape are the powerhouse of the grape the part nobody wants to eat.
Grape seeds contain oligomeric proanthocyanidins or “OPC” for short. OPCs have been studied to prevent the growth and spread of tumor cells. Not all OPCs are the same, some OPCs are tannins, tannins are polyphenols that are too large for the digestive system to effectively absorb. You actually want to look for tannin free grape seed extract that is standardized to Oligomeric proanthocyanidins. Tannin free OPCs are 100% absorbable.
Fact: OPC grape seed extract has been shown to be amazingly effective in fighting tumor growth, cancer formation and chemo resistant cancer stem cells.
It is a little known fact that the reason cancer comes back is because of “cancer stem cells”, these stem cells are resistant to conventional treatments, but OPCs can stop the regeneration of the cancer by blocking the HIPPO-Yap pathway in the body. Blocking this pathway in the body prevents tumor cells from growing allowing the body to naturally kill the cancer all together.
One of the biggest problems with conventional cancer treatment is that cancer cells become resistant to chemo drugs. Generally, doctors will administer higher doses of chemo to overcome this barrier, but with higher doses in turn causes more side effects. OPC grape seed extract and curcumin can help slow the growth of these resistant cells and inhibit the proteins the cancer cells need to thrive. Grape seed can be an adjunct therapy to chemo in patients to assist the effectiveness of their treatments.
Like curcumin, OPC grape seed extract can have an epigenetic effect on the body as well. This means that it can suppress cancer by directly inducing cancer cell death or apoptosis, it boosts levels of tumor suppressor genes, and down regulates tumor promoting genes further assisting the body in fighting cancer.
OPC Grape Seed Extract Is Water Soluble
Each cell in our bodies contain both water and fat, when promoting wellness or fight disease, it is important to fight oxidative stress on both sides (water and fat). OPC grape seed extract covers the water soluble side and curcumin is fat soluble. Curcumin is a great fat soluble antioxidant.
Whether looking for fight oxidation as an antioxidant or battle cancer, always choose a tannin-free OPC standardized French Grape Seed Extract to ensure absorbability and consider BCM-95 curcumin as a fat soluble antioxidant.
