Grape Skin Extract

After the grape juice itself has been squeezed from the grape skin of the red or purple grape, a process of aqueous extraction, or extraction by water to put it more simply, is then performed upon the grape skin itself, giving us what is known as grape skin extract.  Grape skin extract contains the same components as grape juice itself but in different quantities. The appearance of grape skin extract is as a purplish red liquid.


The primary clinical indications are the treatment of vascular disorders.  Moderately high amounts of grape seed extract may blunt salt-sensitive hypertension, and may be helpful as an antioxidant in smokers.  Chemicals found in grape seeds may help ward off skin cancer due to regular exposure to the sun.
