GSE has been shown in studies to help reduce inflammation in the brain, prevent memory loss, improve cognitive status and brain antioxidant levels. Studies show it can help prevent the accumulation of substances known to form brain plaque associated with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.
Reduce Oxidative Stress
GSE has been shown to demonstrate a significant impact in reducing oxidative stress in the human body as a result of its high polyphenolic content responsible for its impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Reduce Cellular Damage
GSE has an antioxidant property that can help protect cells from oxidative stress and any subsequent DNA damage. The impressively high content of polyphenols, especially proanthocyanidins, contained in GSE, can help us understand why there is a low rate of coronary heart disease mortality in wine drinking countries like France where the diet is rich in saturated fat.
By increasing our daily flavonoid consumption we can improve collagen synthesis and bone formation. GSE is a rich source of flavonoids, studies show that adding GSE to a diet can significantly increase bone density, mineral content, and bone strength.
Flavonoids’ combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
are thought to delay or reduce the onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
One of the components of GSE is gallic acid, which animal and lab studies have shown can inhibit the formation of fibrils by beta-amyloid peptides.
GSE is widely used in traditional medicine as a remedy for candida, a common yeast-like fungus, or thrush.
GSE can be used to support healthy liver function and reduce liver toxicity. Healthy liver function is fundamental to having a properly working metabolism, regular menstrual cycle, reduced PMS, balanced hormones, strong digestion, increased energy levels and clearer skin
