Red grape polyphenols
The grape extract standardized in polyphenols that GRAP'SUD manufactures is coming from fresh grape pomaces, collected in the South of France, on the Mediterranean arc. This standardized grape extract offers the same polyphenolic profile as red wine with a guaranteed content in total polyphenols, procyanidins, anthocyanins and resveratrol. Our extract exGrape® TOTAL is manufactured in the heart of the French Paradox.
What is the French Paradox ?
Several epidemiological studies have demonstrated that the French population, while eating a high fat diet, has a reduced mortality rate and a reduced risk of cardiovasular disease compared to other countries. This phenomenon has been called French Paradox. According to scientists, the secret lies in the moderate daily consumption of red wine, which is an integral part of the French diet. Further studies revealed that a high polyphenolic composition of red wine exerts an antioxidant effect and a free-radical scavenging activity, responsible for its health benefits.
GRAP'SUD guarantees the quality of its extract exGrape® TOTAL thanks to a rigorous selection of the raw material and with a unique natural process that allows to keep the total profile of red wine polyphenols.
This know-how that we have been continuously improving for more than 20 years, meet the needs of the evolving world Nutraceutical Industry.
