The Muscadine Grape
The first European settlers in the new world were introduced to the pleasures and health benefits of the muscadine grape by Native Americans, who consumed the wild-growing fruit found in wooded areas of the Southeastern United States. It is speculated that over 400 years ago, the first settlers planted what today is known as the “Mother Vine”, located in North Carolina, which continues to bear fruit until today.
Independent laboratory tests show grape seeds contain high levels of natural antioxidants. This concentration of Resveratrol, Resveratrol Metabolites, and other phenolic compounds, such as Ellagic Acid, OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) and Quercitin, make the Muscadine Grape seeds very potent source of antioxidant.
MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape Seed and Skin supplement is made from select Muscadine Grape (Vitis Rotundifolia) that grow and thrive in a hot, humid and disease prone climate of the Southeastern United States. These growing conditions make Muscadine Grape very different from common bunch of grapes (vitis vinifera), which commonly grown in cooler, milder and less stressful climates.
Similar to the immune system, which produces more antibodies when under attack, MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape produce more disease -fighting phenolic compounds (Antioxidants) when under stress from fungal disease. Studies on the make up of MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape revealed that the highest levels of these potent compounds are in the seeds and skin.
MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape have two (2) more chromosomes than the wine grapes (40 in Muscadines). They have more functional genes and therefore have a greater range of possibilities, distinguishable from the other grapes. This underwrites their vast range of immune-supporting phenolic compounds that are not present in wine grapes. The extra chromosomes make the MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape genetically “The Smarter Grape” with the maximum nutraceutical potential.
The Damage of Free Radicals
We live in the most polluted environment in history. Everything around us has the potential to negatively affect our health and well-being. Environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, smoke, and many more other man-made chemicals can spawn free radicals.
Sources of Free Radical Damage• Smoking • Stress • Pollution • Sunlight • Drinking Chlorine Treated Water • X-rays • Pesticides • Medications • Airborne Emissions • Foods and Food additives • And a lot more
The Power of Antioxidants
As we grow older, we begin to show the side effects of our decreasing supply of antioxidant. We experience more aches, pains and lost energy. Some of these may not be directly caused by getting older, but may be because of an unstable oxygen molecule, the FREE RADICALS.
Free Radicals are atoms or group of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons. They can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Free Radicals can break down healthy human tissues in a process called oxidation. This is the same process that rusts iron and causes peeled apple to turn brown.
Antioxidants are molecules which safely interacts with free radicals and can help by terminating the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. Antioxidants are nature’s super heroes to stop inflammation and free radicals.
Promote Longevity with Muscadines
Chronological age and physiological age are two different things. The human body is genetically designed to live approximately 120 years (physiological age). However, the average chronological age for women is 76 and 74 for men. There are several cultures where people commonly live to be over 100. Scientists believe that the primary reason these cultures have so many more centenarians is differences in diets.
Longevity is the cherished dream of most people. The National Institute of Health (NIH) along with many medical professionals agree that there is a direct connection between lifestyle choices and our overall health. Choosing fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and whole grains may go a long way to help maintain optimum health. This translates into a healthy cardiovascular system, healthy brain activity, good skin, muscle tone and organs that work efficiently to fuel our cells with essential nutrients while removing poisonous toxins from our bodies.
In recent years, many have opted to allow foods and natural dietary supplements to be their choice for achieving optimum health, instead of waiting for health conditions to occur and reacting with traditional prescription medications. Because our bodies need more antioxidants and phytonutrients as we age, MusNatural Premium Muscadine Grape Seed and Skin Supplement is an important choice for your family’s health and longevity.
Health Effects of Muscadines
OPC’s, Ellagic Acid, Resveratrol and its derivatives are now known to have many biological activities associated with our health, it has been estimated that each cell in our bodies is attacked by free radicals 10,000 times daily. Our bodies make special enzymes (antioxidant) to seek out and neutralize the free radicals reducing the amount of damage our bodies suffer as we age. Unfortunately, the older we get the fewer of these enzymes our bodies produce. Another way to battle free radicals is to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants or take supplements like MusNatural Premium Muscadine Seeds and Skins.
There are many reasons why we develop wrinkles and sagging skin, one being the resulting factors of free radicals and damaging effects they have on the collagen in our skin. Both lead to the loss of our youthful appearance. Loss of collagen elasticity not only causes wrinkles in the skin, but also affect the collagen that makes up every organ and tissue in our bodies.
