Grapeseed Extract with Resveratrol & Pterostilbene 100 mg 60 caps by Life Extension
Resveratrol is found in red wine, grapes, blueberries and other berries. It prevents the expression of glaucoma markers induced by chronic oxidative stress in trabecular meshwork cells.**
- Protects trabecular meshwork cells against oxidative stress**
- May be neuroprotective**
- Contains OPCs to protect brain and optic nerve against oxidative stress**
- Contains pTeroPure
- Dietary Supplement
Life Extension Grape Seed Extract with Resveratrol & Pterostilbene contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) which are powerful antioxidants that help protect the central nervous system (including brain and optic nerve) from from oxidative stress.**
The Grapeseed Extract with Resveratrol & Pterostilbene formula provides a blend of standardized proanthocyanidins found in grapeseed and skins. Grapeseed extract helps to maintain healthy platelet function and other aspects of platelet responses,176 and protects the central nervous system from reactive oxygen species.177 This whole grape extract contains a spectrum of polyphenols that are naturally contained in red wine such as proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, flavonoids, etc. This blend also provides standardized trans-resveratrol, the polyphenol in red wine that has shown so many health benefits … and trans-pterostilbene, which researchers have found works synergistically with resveratrol to activate one’s “longevity genes.”**
Like resveratrol, pterostilbene belongs to a class of compounds called phytoalexins, which are naturally produced by plants when under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.
Findings from published scientific literature indicate that resveratrol may be the most effective compound for maintaining optimal health and promoting longevity.144
Research funded by the Life Extension Foundation showed that a combination of low-dose (20 mg) resveratrol plus grapeseed extract mimicked many of the favorable gene expression changes seen in calorie-restricted animals.**

In a peer reviewed study, administration of resveratrol was associated with a significant lowering of inflammatory indicators, oxidative damage and age-related degenerative markers in trabecular meshwork cells. The experimental findings at Duke Eye Center led investigators to consider a possible role for resveratrol or other similar dietary agents to prevent changes associated with the development or progression of open-angle glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness.**

Life Extension Foundation has one mission, and one mission only: to help you live a healthier, longer life.
In fact, we're at the forefront of medical research, constantly looking for ways to prolong youth, health, and life. And we've been at it for more than 34 years, investing more than $140 million to find therapies and technologies that could lead to lifesaving cures for the diseases of aging.
Did you know that we were the first to recommend low-dose aspirin therapy to protect against heart attack … CoQ10 for heart health … and the Omega-3s in fish oil to promote heart health?
Over 350 premium-quality formulations that are the gold standard of the industry. All are clinically validated and tested.
What is the Life Extension Foundation?
The Life Extension Foundation is one of the largest organizations dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span. When seeking anti-aging therapies, health and nutrition, The Foundation has reported discoveries in the areas of atherosclerosis and stroke prevention, diabetes, prostate health, hormone replacement therapy, and other health concerns. The Life Extension Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose goal is to conquer the aging process within the next decade.
How old is the Life Extension Foundation?
The Life Extension Foundation was officially incorporated in 1980, but its founder has been involved in anti-aging research since the 1960s.
What scientific breakthroughs has the Life Extension Foundation made?
Research supported by The Life Extension Foundation has documented the value of antioxidants in extending life span and in protecting cells against ischemia (lack of blood flow). Ischemia is the leading cause of disability and death. Ischemia can be caused by the blockage of a coronary artery, which can lead to a heart attack, or a cerebral artery, which can lead to a stroke. Accident victims often die from ischemia. The Foundation supports a full time research facility that has broken all world records in protecting against ischemia-induced free radical damage.

What is the Foundation's track record in recommending Life Extension Therapies?
The Life Extension Foundation was the first organization to defy the FDA by promoting the use of antioxidant vitamins to maintain health. The Foundation was the first organization to promote the use of low dose aspirin to maintain cardiovascular health. The Foundation was the first organization to recommend against the use of iron in dietary supplements because of evidence that iron causes massive free radical damage contributing to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis and a host of other diseases. The Foundation was the first organization to inform Americans about the "miracle nutrient" coenzyme Q10, about the anti-cancer carotenoids lycopene, lutein, and xanthophyl, and about the most effective anti-aging therapy in the world, Melatonin. And the Foundation was the first organization to introduce Americans to European "smart drugs" like piracetam, centrophenoxine, and DHEA.
