AGELESS BRAIN: Grape Seed Extract

More than a typical aesthetic "anti-aging line" of vitamins Age Quencher® vitamins were developed to address the issues associated with aging. We are not just about hair, skin and nails (although this beauty bonus is fantastic!) Age Quencher® formulas were carefully formulated by a leading Canadian Naturopathic Doctor based on over 15 years of clinical experience.

Age Quencher formulas help to protect and preserve your health by addressing the root cause of disease.

Brain health is of the utmost importance when it comes to aging. The preventative role Age Quencher® products can play in the factors surrounding brain health makes them particularly unique and relevant to you as you age. 

Over the next several months we will highlight the unique ingredients in our AGELESS® Capsules and how they can help support your brain health.

Grape Seed Extract Benefits:

Animal studies showed potential efficacy of grape seed extract in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease. More specifically, this antioxidant has been demonstrated to lower the levels of “memory-impairing Aβ oligomer in vivo and strongly suggest that it should be further tested as a potential prevention and/or therapy for AD”. In another study, aged rats that were given grape seed extract “showed increased memory performance and declined reactive oxygen species production, decreased protein carbonyl levels and improved thiol levels”; in effect, grape seed extract has been shown to enhance "antioxidant status and to decrease the incidence of free radical induced protein oxidation…thereby protecting the central nervous system"

Likewise, results from subsequent studies suggest that grape seed extract may play a beneficial role in treating neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.  

What does this mean? 

The research is promising and given the strong antioxidant properties of this rich bioflavonoid it can be added daily to help support the aging brain. 

Beauty Bonus:

Grape Seed extracts high levels of Polyphenols help support your skin and to prevent free radical damage that can lead to visible signs of again. It has been shown to bind to collagen fibres in the skin helping to prevent collagen breakdown and broken capillaries. This supports not only the skin but helps to maintain collagen to support joint health. 

Dose:  2 Age Quencher® capsules daily with food.
