Red Grapevine

Red grapevine extract is a veritable panacea for circulation in the legs.

Red grapevine is famous for its high flavonoid content: these molecules act as antioxidants, and have been associated with reducing bad cholesterol, relaxing blood vessels, and reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.

In addition, red grapevine leaves have astringent and anti-inflammatory properties that are potentially useful in cases of, for example, bleeding and diarrhoea; in this case, the greatest benefits would be found in the red leaves themselves.

Taking red grapevine may reduce the effectiveness of cytochrome P450 1A2 modified drugs and phenacetin. It may also increase the effect of warfarin, thus increasing the risk of bruising and bleeding.
These supplements are particularly recommended for menopausal women: red grapevine, in addition to counteracting some typical symptoms of menopause such as palpitations, swelling and fatigue, also slows skin ageing thanks to its antioxidant properties.

They were also used for external conditions including chilblains and varicose veins.
