Grape Seed Oil? The Dark Knight or The Bane?
As I am addicted to reading, I read anything and everything possible. And when I stumble upon something so interesting that it captures my attention, it becomes my duty to share with you here and on my blog.
And this time I have come across grape-seed oil – a new found oil that has some amazing health and fat loss benefits.
Firstly it is important to know how this particular oil is made. The name itself suggests that it is made from grape’s seed.
This grape seed is the byproduct of the wine making process.
The wine making process extracts oil which is obviously not useful for the wine makers. But the amazing thing about grape seed oil is, it is flavorless.
Yes, Grape gives its entire flavor to the wine and the oil remains neutral in flavor. This makes the Grape-seed Oil best for salad dressing and also for stir-fries.
Grape-seed Oil has plentiful benefits. It is loaded with antioxidants, and we all know that antioxidants hold many benefits for our body.
Antioxidants are best to boost our metabolism which accelerates the weight loosing process.
The Grape-seed Oil contains numerous proteins, fatty compounds and Vitamin E and also compounds like “flavonoids”. These flavonoids, oligomeric proanthocyanidins has those antioxidants.
These antioxidants stabilize the liberated radicals. Free radicals have the tendency to speed aging and increase the risk of cancer and other diseases. Thus the antioxidants from Grape-seed Oil help to stabilize these radicals.
Hence, Grape-seed Oil is the best option to add in our daily diet.
Grape-seed Oil has other health benefits too, such as it has the power to lower the blood cholesterol level. It is possible due to Grape-seed Oil contains proanthocyanidin that helps to stabilize and lower the blood cholesterol level.
This study was published in “Journal of Medicine” in 2000.
The study clearly stated that Grape-seed Oil helps to lower the bad cholesterol in humans. This oil is very much beneficial for the cardiovascular health too.
After doing research on animals and humans there are studies that state Grape-seed Oil convincingly helped in lowering the overall blood pressure levels.
This helps in lowering the rate of having stroke. Grape-seed Oil has the power to also fight certain types of cancer cells. It hugely helps to reduce the ability of reproduction of the cancer cells.
This oil also gives speedy recovery from swelling, improve symptoms of insufficiency or some marks caused by surgery or any injury or any kind of disorder of the veins in your legs can be eradicated.
There is an obvious question that must have crossed your mind; how to use this Grape-seed Oil?!
This oil is available at few food markets or at health food stores. This is available in oil, capsules, or tablets. But it is just oil that has maximum health benefits for the body.
Normally Grape-seed Oil is known to be safe and has no side effects; but it can cause stomach upset or diarrhea, mild nausea in some people.
This oil might react to certain medications that includes blood-thinners or those medication that broken down in the liver, as shown on this University page..
This Grape-seed Oil can’t be consumed by the pregnant or breast feeding females. Yes, in spite of so many health settlements Grape-seed Oil is instructed to be consumed cautiously in the diet. It is prescribed not more than 5 to 6 teaspoons per day for women and 6 to 7 for men.
After giving all the important information about this Grape-seed Oil it’s very necessary to understand that one cannot relay completely on such products. This was my first reaction after reading all the investigation.
There are so many people on the web these day that would write a number of articles just to promote a specific product but it is very much imperative for everyone to think wisely before taking the step towards any kind of new product.
For example, if you can do research on which new phone to buy, it is quite essential to go through that process for everything around you, especially something that might very well aid you in your fat loss quest.
All in all, Grape-seed Oil is one of the rare products that has almost innumerable health benefits for the body. But of course, like every product can’t be perfect this does has some drawbacks, so it is best to utilize it in moderation.
Finally I would say that on this earth, we have billions of natural goodies available to us, we just have to be careful about our choices.
