Grapeseed Oil

Grape seed oil is pale yellow colored fatty oil, which is derived from grape seeds by extraction and pressing. It is an industrial product that possesses strong antioxidant compounds called procyanidolic oligomers. It is low in nutrients, but high in omega-6 fatty acids. The health claims for this oil are based on the supposedly high amounts of nutrients, antioxidants and polyunsaturated fats.

Nutritional Value of Grapeseed Oil

Grape seed oil contains 40 calories per teaspoon. This calorie content is similar to other plant-based oils, such as olive, canola and peanut oils. The publication 'Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010' suggests consuming 6 teaspoons of oils daily when following a 2000-calorie meal plan and 7 teaspoons of oils daily when following a 2500-calorie diet. Being fat, it doesn’t contain any protein or carbohydrates -including sugar. A teaspoon of grape seed oil provides 4.5 grams of total fat. The majority of fats in grape seed oil or 3.9 grams are poly and mono-unsaturated fats. Only 0.4 gram of fat in 1 teaspoon of grape seed oil is from saturated fatty acids. The predominant polyunsaturated fatty acids found in grape seed oil are omega-6 fatty acids. This is according to a 2009 study published in the “International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition.” Whereas, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center omega-6 fatty acids is essential in our diet as our body cannot produce them. It also plays an important role in brain function, normal growth and development, skin and hair growth, bone health, metabolism and reproduction. The same source notes that some omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation. But a 2013 study in the “International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition” found that grape seed oil seems to improve inflammation and insulin resistance in overweight and obese women. It is an excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage in our body and strengthens our immune system. One teaspoon of grape seed oil contains 1.3 milligrams of vitamin E. The recommended dietary allowance or RDA for vitamin E is 15 milligrams daily for adult men and women. This is according to the Institute of Medicine.

Health Benefits of Grapeseed Oil

Mentioned below are the best health benefits of Grapeseed Oil
Health Benefits of Grapeseed Oil

Cancer prevention

Cancer is a disease in which cells present themselves with an unrestricted proliferative potential. On a microscopic level, phytochemicals inhibit cancerous changes along all stages of tumor growth i.e. from initiation to growth on to metastasis. Phytochemicals are most effective in preventing cancerous changes when consumed in healthy quantities over long periods of time. Thus, suddenly increasing consumption of grapes following a cancer diagnosis is unlikely to cure the cancer, but it may increase a person’s immunity to fight the cancer naturally. Grape seeds contain a group of phytochemical antioxidants known as proanthocyanidins. Researchers believe the anti-cancer benefits of GSE come from these proanthocyanidins, which contain more antioxidant power than vitamin C and E combined. Therefore, it can be used to prevent cancer. Grape seed oil is a good source of gamma-tocotrienol form of vitamin E, which has shown to inhibit important steps in metastasis in both hormone receptor positive and triple negative breast cancer cells. Gamma-tocotrienol has also been found to enhance the toxic effects of adriamycin in breast cancer cells.

Blood pressure control

Blood pressure refers to the resistance produced each time the heart beats and sends blood coursing through the arteries. It normalizes high blood pressure. Antioxidants, including flavonoids, linoleic acid and phenolic procyanidins in grape seed oil help protect our blood vessels from damage, which may help to prevent high blood pressure.

Cognitive function

Grape seed oil boosts cognitive abilities and overall brain health. It helps to prevent free-radical brain damage and also improves one’s memory. It helps reduce stress and inflammation in the brain. It is also being studied for its potential life extension and anti-aging effects. It reduces aggregation of brain amyloid cells thus improving cognition. It is able to lower unwanted compounds, such as hydrogenperoxide, cellular damage and blood glucose and also increases good compounds like sulfhydryl content.

Osteoarthritis

1 (OA) is a common inflammatory joint disease affecting a growing part of elderly people and is associated with a strong socio-economic impact. Grape seed oil contains plyphenols that exert a large range of beneficial effects in the prevention of age-related diseases. In rheumatoid arthritis, it decreases many bad changes. It is able to significantly reduce many of the inflammatory markers and induces production of Th2 cytokines and Tregs. In autoimmune arthritis it reduces several inflammatory cytokines. It decreases the amount of markers for bone erosion and increases the amount of mature bone forming components. Grape seed oil is able to reduce several pain indexes in osteoarthritis and decreases many of the inflammatory markers.

Skin care

Grape seed oil has great amount of vitamin E which provides antioxidants for our skin. It treats acne, tightens skin, helps diminish dark circles around the eyes, moisturizes, reduces scars, restores collagen and fights aging.

Diabetic symptoms

Grape seed oil deals with diabetes by the improvement in fat profile, weight loss, bradycardia, and low blood pressure. Because of its antioxidant abilities, it is able to improve oxidative damage and general antioxidant levels in diabetic patients. It prevents heart damage and disorders caused by diabetes. It enhances insulin, increasing its ability to stimulate organs.

Cardio-protective

Proanthocyanidin that is found in grape seed oil can have a positive effect on cardiovascular disease prevention. It hardens the arteries and decreases blood cholesterol. It reduces free radical formation, heart fibrillation, tachycardia and improves aortic flow including heart flow after surgeries.

Bone density

Grape seed oil is essential to build bone density. It improves bone formation and bone strength. Proanthocyanidins extract is good for bones.

Oral health

A study conducted on cells found that grape seed extract is effective in rematerializing teeth, a process that is used to prevent or reverse early tooth decay. In tests, tooth samples were washed with a solution containing grape seed extract for eight days and the data showed that it had been more rematerialized than the other control groups.

Protects stomach

Grape seed oil is able to increase intestinal integrity. It increases bacteroides count and restores the lactobacilli count. It increases intestinal tight junction proteins and decreases fecal levels which are a marker of intestinal inflammation.

Metabolic syndrome

Grape seed oil decreases the blood fat levels and also decreases the amount of fat accumulation especially in white fat tissues. It corrects elevated triglycerides, most likely through the mechanism of suppressing liver fat production. It also inhibits lipase activity in test tubes and thus may be useful for reducing free fatty acids and accumulation of fat in fat tissues.

Anti-bacterial

In-vitro grape seed oil is able to inhibit the activity of many bacteria (Bacillus cereus, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). It is more effective against gram-positive than gram-negative bacteria.

Uses of Grapeseed Oil

In the 20th century, this oil was widely used as cooking oil. After the advancement of technology and due to its neutral taste and high smoking point, it made an excellent choice for frying and sautéing. It's rich in cholesterol-lowering polyunsaturated fats.

10 Effective Home Remedies For Veins!

10 Effective Home Remedies For Veins!

Some of the most effective home remedies for varicose veins include the use of olive oil, garlic, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, parsley, horse chestnut, grapeseed oil, pine bark, marigold, and various lifestyle changes.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins are the unsightly and uncomfortable veins, most often occurring in the leg, that have become twisted or enlarged, preventing proper blood flow to extremities and forcing your cardiovascular system to work harder to achieve proper unidirectional blood flow. As people age, or if they have professions that make them stand for long periods of time, the veins can often become tangled in this way, preventing the normal leaflets of our veins from directing blood in one direction. When blood begins flowing in opposite directions, it can become extremely painful, whether one is standing or not. While varicose veins rarely result in life-threatening complications, it can still manifest in the form of leg swelling, edema, venous eczema, skin thickening, and visible vein knots in the legs or affected area. While this affliction most commonly affects the legs, as that is where the body must work hardest to overcome gravity and pump the blood back to the chest, it can also occur on other parts of the body.

Symptoms of varicose veins include aching legs, swollen ankles or knees, unexplained fatigue in the legs, slow healing time on small wounds or cuts on the legs, cramps, and skin discoloration or irritation on the calves or feet. If you believe that you are suffering from varicose veins, there are some in-hospital treatments that can alleviate some of the symptoms, but these are often temporary, expensive, and, as with all surgeries, carry a degree of risk. Instead, there are dozens of herbal remedies that have been developed, tested, and relied on for years to eliminate varicose veins, treat its symptoms, or keep them under control in a healthy, effective way. Let’s take a closer look at some of these treatments below.

10 effective home remedies for varicose veins

1. Horse chestnut: the extract from horse chestnut seeds is considered extremely effective against varicose veins, as horse chestnuts are astringent in nature and contain a powerful compound called aescin, which inhibits the destructive enzymes that damage capillary walls. Patients suffering from varicose veins can experience a reduction in swelling and pain when the extract is consumed. However, only the extract can be consumed, as raw horse chestnuts contain other compounds that are actually toxic.

2. Grapeseed oil: grapeseed is a very powerful type of natural oil that has long been used to relieve inflammation and muscle pain when applied in a topical manner. Grapeseedextract can also be consumed, but the unpleasant taste often makes people prefer the topical application of the oil. The proanthocyanids contained in the oil can strengthen the capillary walls and resist degradation, while also reducing inflammation and even promoting healthy blood flow to the extremities.

3. Marigold: marigold is rich in antioxidant compounds and vitamin c, both of which are essential for protecting the skin and maintaining the health and strength of veins and capillaries. You can eat marigold petalsdirectly, but that isn’t considered as effective as boiling the petals and then dipping a hot cloth in the boiled water, which should be infused with the beneficial compounds and chemicals. Apply that cloth to the affected area of your leg to experience reduced swelling, an elimination of pain, and and important collagen transfer that can help your body rebuild damaged capillaries and veins to prevent varicose veins from spreading.

4. Pine bark: the proanthocyanid compoundsfound in grapeseed are also present in the bark of pine trees, in addition to other unique compounds in the extracts that strengthen capillary walls, bind collagen to veins, promote elasticity of the veins, improves blood circulation, and even lowers blood pressure. Pine bark extract is widely available and can be used safely for long periods of time if the problem persists.

5. Parsley: this common herb is another popular home remedy for varicose veins, as its high level of vitamin c promotes the creation of collage and subsequent repair of damaged blood vessels. Rutin is the powerful organic compound in parsley that directly affects capillary strength, making it a key herb to add to your diet if you’re suffering from unsightly varicose veins.

6. Apple cider vinegar: as always, it seems like almost any condition can be improved somehow by this magical cure-all. In terms of varicose veins, consuming apple cider vinegar has been shown to detoxify the blood, while also promoting circulation and reduce inflammation. These three factors together make it an ideal tonic for varicose vein conditions. The easiest remedy is mixing two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drinking it two times a day. You can also get undiluted apple cider vinegar and combine it with your normal lotion and apply it to the affected areas. Both remedies are highly effective.

7. Cayenne pepper: the bioflavonoids and vitamin c found in cayenne pepper are able to promote healthy blood flow to the extremities and ease the pain of swollen or aching joints and leg muscles. The pain of varicose veins is often worse than the appearance, and consuming or topically applying a paste of cayenne pepper can definitely help alleviate those uncomfortable situations.

8. Olive oil: as with grapeseed oil, olive oil is able to significantly improve your health. You can rub olive oil on the affected area and allow the rich mixture of organic compounds so the inflammation and pain, and also stimulate repair on injured or degraded capillaries and blood vessels.

9. Garlic: as another apparent cure-all, garlic can break up toxins in the body and stimulate their release, in addition to reducing inflammation and increasing healthy circulation throughout the body. Adding garlic to your diet or regularly applying a garlic paste to the varicose veins can quickly reduce their appearance and discomfort.

10. Lifestyle changes: a number of lifestyle habits can exacerbate varicose veins, including standing for long periods of time, impact exercises or sports, being overweight, wearing high heels, sedentary lifestyle where you don’t walk or move your legs for periods of 30 minutes or longer, excessive alcohol intake, and smoking, which slows down circulation throughout your body. Eliminate or change some of these lifestyle factors and you will see a definite improvements in your varicose vein symptoms.
