Red Vine Leaf Extract: A Real Remedy for The Circulation!

Food supplements: Let's discover the benefits of a red vine leaf cure

Recognized in the symptomatic treatment of circulation disorders of the veins, this topic is a really great one to look at!
First of all, grape seed extract from the red vine is rich in proanthocyanidols (condensed tannins). They are polymers with anti-inflammatory properties and are said to be an excellent nutritional supplement.

Its veinotonic action
Red vine thus has many benefits, for treating venous insufficiency, the feeling of heavy legs and oedema.
But, how does this work? Quite simply today, we are going to unravel the vines of botany and medicine for you, as we look at the properties of red vine, Vitis vinifera.

Antioxidant power
These proanthocyanidols we have mentioned, are recognized for their antiradical and antioxidant properties. Anti-radicular means the qualification of a substance used to protect your skin and mucous membranes from free radicals.
Red vine leaves, like the skin and seeds of grapes, also contain polyphenols which have antioxidant powers.

Let's get back to the subject of this article: a remedy for circulation. Red vine owes its therapeutic effects to its antioxidant compounds. These are mainly flavonoids (quercetin and oligo-proanthocyanin) and resveratrol. Red vine (especially proanthocyanidins) acts on venous insufficiency and varicose veins, thanks to its vasodilating effect (the dilation of blood vessels). It also promotes muscle contraction of the veins and the return of blood to the heart and lungs.
Well, now let's get down to defining these free radicals, produced naturally by our bodies. These cause oxidative stressors, affecting the structure of our skin and accelerate the aging process. These “anti-free radical” properties are therefore a godsend! The same goes for the antioxidant properties, which capture those free radicals.

There are many ways of taking red vine leaf extract, in the form of an infusion, capsules or even tablets. But hey, I'm not fond of all these methods which always seem a little eccentric to me! Isn't it simply better to get these proanthocyanidins directly from the fruits and vegetables we can easily find?
Well, grapes, blackcurrants and green tea also contain these condensed tannins. So, you can get these directly from these foods! I admit that I intentionally excluded wine, which also includes a significant number of condensed tannins. I don’t want to encourage anyone to drink stacks of wine! 

Do not forget that the active ingredients of the red vine are well tolerated by the body. However, like many active substances, they may have certain contraindications. Red vine is not recommended for pregnant women and can cause headaches, nausea or digestive disorders.
