What is Betagrape Plus?
Essentially Yours BetaGrapePlus is a specially formulated beverage which has a comprehensive range of antioxidant ingredients. They are Grape seed extract (VitisVinifera) : a source of Proanthocyanidins antioxidants, a powerful antioxidant for your heart and cellular metabolic process necessary for energy production, Beta carotene an important natural antioxidants found in many orange colored foods, Natural Vitamin E plus Vitamin C, Selenium an essential antioxidant trace element to fight free radicals and Zinc . Essentially Yours BetaGrape is a concentrated source of biologically active natural compounds found in fruits and vegetables that are powerful antioxidant nutrients.
Antioxidants such as BetaGrape Plus help protect the body against the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can destroy cell membranes and damage DNA. Free radicals are produced by exercise, smoking, excess sunlight, the body’s normal process of metabolizing the air we breathe and the food we eat. Whilst populations in many countries are living longer, statistics show that we are not necessarily staying fit and healthy.
Many degenerative diseases plague our elderly population and Much scientific research on these serious health problems has been carried out in the last few decadesas scientist work to find an answer to prevent these diseases. One exciting area of research focuses on free radicals. Research indicates that free radicals may be a contributing factor in many chronic and degenerative diseases, as mentioned earlier.
What Does Betagrape Plus Contain?
Betagrape Plus contains a comprehensive range of antioxidants such as,
Grape seed extract (Vitis-Vinifera): A source of Proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins which are called OPC’s, are highly specialized group of Bioflavonoids and is the most potent free radical scavenger known to science possessing an antioxidant effect of up to 50 times. Used throughout Europe to prevent and treat a variety of health conditions, grape seed extract is a powerful antioxidant that can be used to benefit the body in many ways such as an antiallergenic, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory and immune supporting properties and which are instrumental in fighting viruses, allergens, and carcinogens.
The bioflavonoids in grape seed extract help to strengthen and protect cell membranes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Grape seed extract aids wound healing by helping to regenerate damaged blood vessels and clearing harmful bacteria from the wound. It can be used to prevent health problems which include cardiovascular disease, varicose veins, edema, and arthritis. Another important area that grape seed extract can help is eye health and is frequently recommended to combat macular degeneration, cataracts, and eye strain.
Beta-carotene, a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits, especially carrots and colorful vegetables. The human body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A (retinol) – beta-carotene precursor of vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin, mucus membranes, immune system, good eye health and vision.
The advantage of dietary beta-carotene is that the body only converts as much as it needs. Beta-carotene, like all carotenoids, is an antioxidant. Some studies have suggested that those who consume at least four daily servings of beta-carotene rich fruits and/or vegetables have a lower risk of chronic diseases. Researchers from Harvard Medical School reported in Archives of Internal Medicine (November 2007) issue that men who have been taking beta-carotene supplements for 15 or more years are considerably less likely to experience cognitive decline than other males.
Oxidative stress is thought to be a key factor in cognitive decline, the researchers explained. Studies have shown that antioxidant supplements may help prevent the deterioration of cognition.
Their study, involving 4,052 men, compared those on beta-carotene supplements for an average of 18 years to others who were given placebo. Over the short-term, they found no difference in cognitive decline risk between the two groups of men, but in the long-term it was clear that beta-carotene supplements made a significant difference.
The British Medical Journal published a report in March 2006 which showed that high blood beta-carotene levels compensate for some of the damage to the lungs caused by oxygen free radicals Natural Vitamin E, a powerful biological antioxidant for cardiovascular Strength and protection.
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to form an important protein to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C heals wounds, repairs and maintains cartilage, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is an antioxidant nutrient that blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals.
The body does not make or store vitamin C. It is therefore important to include plenty of vitamin C-containing foods in your daily diet.
Selenium is an antioxidant trace element that is essential to good health. Its antioxidant properties help prevent cellular damage from free radicals and plays an important role in the immune system and metabolism.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is found in almost every cell. It stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your body. Zinc supports a healthy immune system and is needed for wound healing, and for DNA synthesis.
