Red wine - France Leaf Pack 250 g
Latin Name: Vitis vinifera
Other names: vinifera vine, wild vine, Lambrusco
Probably originated in southern Europe and the Middle East, the grapevine began to spread on the planet millions of years before the appearance on Earth of Homo sapiens. Some experts believe that culture appeared there about 6000 years. The transformation of grape juice into wine is probably due to chance and the fact that grapes contain natural yeasts that promote fermentation. It is assumed that one day in the Persian Gulf region, someone discovered a jar of grape juice fermented forgotten and tasting its content has enjoyed the taste and effects. From there the process of winemaking and viticulture have developed very quickly. There are sixty species of vines but it is essentially the Vitis vinifera species that is consumed today.
The therapeutic effects of red vine vary with plant parts that are used.
The red vine leaves 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 effect.
The skin of red grapes contain resveratrol (wine also contains). In vitro studies and animal indicate that resveratrol, found in large quantities in red wine, has antioxidant properties and inhibitory platelet aggregation, which may help explain the French paradox. Indeed, despite a diet relatively rich in animal fat, the incidence of cardiovascular disease in French is two times less than in the U.S. and four times less than in English. The authors of several studies have turned to the regular consumption of red wine during the meal to try to explain the phenomenon. Some also believe that resveratrol have estrogenic properties, another track for its cardioprotective effects. Other preliminary studies also suggest that this flavonoid may offer some protection against cancer by helping to inhibit the genesis and growth of cancer cells.
The seeds contain primarily oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC). The majority of these studies, in which it was used mainly extracts from grape seed, conclude that OPC can relieve pain in the legs caused by venous insufficiency and varicose veins. The authors of a recent review of the literature concluded that a mixture of OPC (grape seed) and chelated chromium brought a significant protection against the effects of free radicals in the elderly. Furthermore, it is believed more than OPC bring some protection against insulin resistance, a problem that often occurs with age.

Angioprotectrice This action is enhanced by the presence of tannins and astringent vasoconstrictors that promote venous return. Among these tannins, proanthocyanidins have an effect against free radicals. They are stabilizers of collagen in the vessel membranes.
The red vine leaf contains anthocyanins, substances that confer the fall came a blood-red color characteristic. Decreasing permeability and increasing capillary resistance, the anthocyanins have a great vitamin activity P. Venous stasis is avoided. Red vine holds a angioprotectrice share (which helps to strengthen the resistance of the blood capillaries), which is enhanced by the presence of tannins, astringent (helps to tighten and firm the tissues) and vasoconstrictor (that help shrink blood vessels) for better venous return. Red vine is particularly recommended to treat venous insufficiency and its consequences are the sensation of heavy legs, varicose veins ... She also acts favorably against cutaneous capillary fragility and its consequences such as rosacea, bruises .. . Red vine can also be used to permanently cure hemorrhoids. Namely, among the tannins of red wine, there are the proanthocyanidins, proanthocyanidols who now have a proven action against free radicals, they are more excellent stabilizers of collagen present in the membranes of vessels.
