Grape seed extract OPC - A Miracle Against Skin Irritations

Grape seeds are rich in antioxidants, including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, flavonoids, oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and proanthocyanidins (PAC). Therefore, they have numerous benefits for men's skin. Grape seed extract is also rich in vitamin E, linoleic acid and resveratrol. Due to the very high content of antioxidants, grape seeds may help prevent diseases and protect against oxidative stress, tissue damage and inflammation. That is why we use it in both our NOUMEN Skin Supplement and our Skincare products.

Grape seed extract (OPC) at a glance

Grape seed extract (OPC) is particularly known as an antioxidant. Thus, it reduces oxidative stress and may neutralize free radicals. Your skin cells and tissue are thus protected from damage. This way, you will not only be protected from numerous diseases, but it will also protect your skin from inflammation and aging. A study has shown that OPC is more effective in protecting against free radicals than vitamin E and vitamin C.

The effect and benefits of grape seed extract (OPC)

In addition to protecting against oxidative stress and bacterial pathogens, grape seed extract also provides protection against collagen and elastin in the skin. OPC may repair unstable collagen thereby reducing wrinkles and increasing your skin's elasticity. By boosting skin enzyme activity, taking OPC also creates increased protection against UV radiation. Besides the numerous positive effects and benefits for the skin, the blood circulation is also promoted and supports the function of your brain. Thus, grape seed extract promotes your ability to concentrate and focus.

5 benefits of grape seed extract at a glance

1. Better Men's Skin 🧖‍♂️

Grape seed extract is a true miracle worker for men's skin. Research suggests that grape seed extract may improve skin hydration and elasticity. The protection against free radicals inhibits inflammation and therefore leads to less skin redness, pimples and acne in men. Even wound healing is improved. 

2. Anti-Aging Effect 🙋‍♂️

It has been scientifically proven at the molecular level that grape seed extract improves skin elasticity. OPC may repair unstable collagen and thus reduce wrinkles. The mechanism of action is that the extract helps bind amino acids, which are important for the production of collagen and elastin. This is because the less collagen there is in the skin, the less moisture can be stored by men's skin. Thus, it becomes drier and more wrinkled.

3. Fights UV Damage 🛡️

Studies have shown that grape seed extract may combat the harmful effects of UV radiation on our skin in a variety of ways. In a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, a 75% increase in natural skin protection was demonstrated when 19 healthy volunteers took grape seed extract for 14 days. Here, OPC is particularly effective in combination with Pine Bark Extract.

4. Promotes Concentration 🧠

In one study, taking grape seed extract improved cognitive abilities and reduced symptoms of stress and depression. It may also protect brain cells from oxidative damage. The combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of flavonoids is also thought to delay or reduce the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Similar effects are also noted from blueberry intake.

5. Protects Against Pathogens 🦠

Grape seed extract can inhibit a variety of microbes and provides protection against antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, foodborne bacterial diseases, and fungal infections, such as Candida.
