When the rest of the world catches up – this
little-known West African herb may be
celebrated as the most effective weight loss
compound ever tested.
The people in the study – which was
published in the medical journal Lipids
in Health and Disease – lost an
average of 28 pounds and 6 inches off their
belly. And they didn’t change their diet
or exercise habits.
Dr. Sears’ enhanced version of this formula
is ready today. It’s even more effective
than the compound researchers used in the

Are you aware of how grape seed extract can lower your risks of a heart attack?
Why do you need grape
Since the surgeon
sawed open my chest and stitched in bypass to 6 of my favorite arteries
15 years ago I
have always been on the lookout for the best heart supplements I can
find to keep my heart in top condition.
Since oxidation of LDL
cholesterol leads to clogging of the arteries of the heart (and brain) and grape seed extract
dramatically reduces oxidation you can readily understand why it's near
the top of my heart supplement list.
As its name implies,
grape seed extract comes from the small seeds of red grapes--the same kind that are pressed to make wine.
The most valuable flavonoids in
grape seeds have a long and difficult name and complete extremely
difficult tasks. Their technical name is proanthocyanidins but understandably
they are known as PCOs.
PCO has been shown to be 50 times more potent than vitamin E.
PCO has also been shown to
prevent the stickiness of blood platelets that can lead to blood clots and strokes.
Patients taking grape seed extract PCO have reported
reduced blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Recent studies have shown that
drinking wine has a protective effect against heart disease (considered the solution to the mystery of how the French population can indulge in a high-fat diet and have one of the world's lowest incidences of heart disease).
Other studies have shown that many of the compounds in red wine are absorbed into the blood, become associated with LDL cholesterol and
reduce the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation.
A study published in "Circulation," the journal of the American Heart Association, showed that
six glasses of grape juice were as effective as two glasses of wine in preventing heart disease.
This study offers convincing evidence that PCO from grapes, rather than the alcohol, provide wine's protective benefits to the circulatory system.
Grape seed extract is rich in flavonoids, phytochemicals that have antioxidant properties
many believe are more powerful than the old standbys vitamin C and vitamin E.
Beyond their antioxidant powers, PCOs are thought to
improve blood circulation and help strengthen blood vessels. These actions benefit people with
heart disease and cancer.
Prevent heart disease. The risk for heart attack and stroke may be reduced
by grape seed extract's ability to prevent the plaque that can clog arteries.
Deter cancer. The antioxidants in grape seed extract work hard at helping to control cellular damage, routinely hunting down and neutralizing mutations within the genetic material of cells that could lead to tumor formation.
Fibromyalgia damage. Fibromyalgia is an elusive disorder associated with chronic muscle pain and stiffness. The antioxidant power of grape seed extract can help by protecting besieged muscle cells from damage.
It's good for
the eyes. People who stare at computer monitors for extended periods may benefit from taking
this powerful heart supplement.
The findings of one recent study indicate that 300 mg, taken daily, will ease eyestrain and enhance perception of contrast after just 60 days.
Slow progression of macular degenerationand cataracts. This extract derived from grape seeds improves blood flow in the eye's tiny vessels, where certain eye diseases can cause blockages and impairments that result in vision damage.
Disorders such as endometriosis,
which are affected by the release of hormone-like substances called
prostaglandins, may benefit from the extract's ability to block the release
of this pain- and inflammation-causing chemical
Fight skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema. Certain components within the skin--collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid--participate in keeping it healthy. PCOs help keep these substances in good shape by blocking enzymes that might disrupt their chemical structure.
How Grape Seed
Extract works It penetrates cell membranes throughout the body with its antioxidant properties. It can even cross into the brain (traversing the blood-brain barrier) to protect brain cells from free-radical damage.
One of the first benefits of PCO observed by doctors as early as 1950 was its anti-inflammatory action. This is produced in part by the antioxidant effect, and by inhibiting the release and synthesis of certain compounds that promote inflammation, such as histamine, serine protease, prostaglandins, and leukotrienes.
The PCO in grape seed
extractselectively binds to the connective tissue of joints, preventing swelling, helping heal damaged tissue, and lessening pain.
A recent study of 38 smokers indicates that
PCOs may function as effectively as aspirin in keeping blood cells from sticking together and forming blood clots (called an anticoagulant
effect) And the
PCOs posed no risk of the gastrointestinal irritation or bleeding generally associated with aspirin.
Interestingly, another preliminary study using grape seed oil (which is related to grape seed extract) indicates that using 2 tablespoons a day to replace other oils in cooking could
increase HDL ("good") cholesterol by 14% and reduce triglycerides by 15% in just four weeks.

I'd like to tell
about a powerful new discovery that science
and medical professionals are buzzing about. One that can help you switch on your
“longevity gene”… and cancel out the negative
effects of aging.
what Dr. Al Sears, pioneer of anti-aging medicine has to say
§Recapture the vitality of your youth…
§Sharpen your mental abilities…
§Win the battle over “bad genes”…
What you’ve dreamed about is now possible. This is not
science fiction: It’s real life.
Some of the benefits of resveratrol include its ability to
switch on good anti-aging genes and turn off the negative
§Prevent cancerous cells from multiplying.
§Induce DNA repair (fixes damaged
§Enable insulin to assist glucose uptake into
cells (normalizes blood sugar…)
§Ramps up the good HDL cholesterol that
actually reverses heart disease.
§Promote excess production of insulin and
inflammation (causing fat gain, swelling and joint pain…)
§Allows the bad or cancerous cells to grow
Resveratrol shifts your cells into high gear, stimulating
them to perform a variety of activities that promote health
Its heart health benefits are significant as it can reduce
many risk factors of heart disease. It also has the
remarkable capacity to halt cell “malfunctions” that can be
lethal, like tumor growth.
These benefits of resveratrol can dramatically improve the
quality of our lives.
"Resveratrol is a major breakthrough. There’s no doubt about
it… But there’s more to antioxidants. In fact, when you
combine resveratrol with two of its most powerful siblings,
you get a formula capable of real transformation."
