Properties of red vine leaves
The leaves of the red vine are concentrated in various flavonoids. A significant medical study demonstrated the beneficial effect of an extract of red vine leaves on subjects with venous insufficiency.
Indications and uses of red vine leaves
- Venous insufficiency
- Varicose veins, heavy legs
- Continuation of phlebitis
- Varicose ulcers
- Hot flashes of menopause
This angioprotective action is increased by the presence of tannins, astringents and vasoconstrictors, which promote venous return. Among these tannins, proanthocyanidols have an action against free radicals. They stabilize the collagen present in the membranes of the vessels.

Pharmacology of red vine leaves
The red vine leaf contains anthocyanosides, substances which give it a very characteristic blood-red color in autumn. By decreasing permeability and increasing capillary resistance, anthocyanosides have tremendous vitamin P activity.
Red vine has an angioprotective action (which helps to strengthen the resistance of blood capillaries), which is enhanced by the presence of tannins, astringents (which helps to tighten and firm tissues) and vasoconstrictors (which help to narrow blood vessels) for better venous return.
The red vine also acts favorably against cutaneous capillary fragility and its consequences which are rosacea, bruises, hemorrhoids.
Namely that among the tannins of the red vine, we find proanthocyanidins, which now have a proven action against free radicals. Proanthocyanidins are also excellent stabilizers of the collagen present in the membranes of the vessels.
