Staying active is important for a healthy lifestyle. Watching this year’s Olympics inspired me to up my game! So when I read Polyphenolics President Jim Kennedy’s new white paper, MegaNatural® Grape Seed Extracts and their role in Sports Nutrition, I knew I wanted to share some highlights with you.
He points out that when we breathe harder and our hearts beat faster, we expose our bodies to increased oxidative stress. This is caused by the production of damaging free radicals. Left unchecked, these free radicals can lead to cellular damage. MegaNatural® grape seed extracts are rich in antioxidants and may reduce free radicals.
MegaNatural® Gold grape seed extract has been clinically shown to be an effective antioxidant. This white paper describes how MegaNatural® Gold increases antioxidant activity in our blood plasma and how its antioxidant quality and quantity are superior to other sources.
One fact that jumped out at me: When MegaNatural® Gold is taken in combination with either Vitamin C or Vitamin E, the vitamin’s antioxidant capacity is doubled!
And here’s something athletes will want to know about MegaNatural® BP grape seed extract. Not only is it an effective antioxidant, but MegaNatural® BP has been clinically shown to help maintain healthy nitric oxide levels that are within the normal range. Many athletes actively seek sports nutrition supplements that promote nitric oxide benefits because this helps support healthy vasodilation and blood flow.
This white paper also covers MegaNatural® grape seed extract clinical trials, safety profile, awards, formulating insights and advantages above competitors. There’s a lot of great information presented in a quick-read format.
