Nutraceuticals comprise a range of products derived from food sources that offer additional, special health advantages.
Most of the nutraceuticals that we offer are derived from grapes and vines. Many studies across the globe suggest that these products offer powerful health properties and disease-fighting benefits. The polyphenols, that we supply, occur in red wine and are believed to protect against the incidence of coronary heart disease in diets rich in saturated fats, a phenomenon known as “The French Paradox”.(Some people prefer simply to drink red wine!) Polyphenols are used in diet products, sports nutrition, anti-oxidant and cardio-vascular preparations.
Certain polyphenols are used in cosmetics for their anti-ageing properties and to protect against the effects of the sun on skin.
Resveratrol is a well-known plant extract with powerful antioxidant effects. Derived from many different plants, our product is made from grapevine shoots, which produces one of the most effective and potent forms of Resveratrol. It helps to protect against coronary disease, tumours, and DNA damage. Studies suggest it is useful in combating obesity and ageing.
