( — October 27, 2016) Orlando, FL — Hair loss is a problem that many people are suffering from. There are procedures and treatments believed to be helpful for this condition. However, there are also home alternatives thought to be helpful to sufferers.

A lab study reveals that grapeseed extract may be a potential hair loss agent. This natural alternative is widely popularized by its potential antioxidant properties. It is even thought to be beneficial in helping to fight a variety of conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

There are many hair care products available in the market today. While these products may be effective, many of them contain toxic chemicals that may be detrimental to overall health. This is why more and more people are looking for natural methods, which are thought to be safer alternatives.

The Tsukuba Research Laboratories conducted an animal-based study, which was published in the Swedish journal Acta Derm Venereol in November 1998. It was found that the proanthocyanidins in grape seed were able to increase hair follicle cell proliferation in mice.

The researchers of the study also suggest that proanthocyanidins have been able to speed up the transition of the resting to growing phase during the hair growth cycle. Thus, grapeseed extract could potentially be an excellent hair loss agent.

Grape seed extract can be obtained from the seeds of wine grapes. It contains high levels of potentially beneficial properties such as flavonoids, linoleic acid, Vitamin E, and oligomeric proanthocyanadin complexes. It is believed that grape seed extract may have the ability to inhibit damage in cells that free radicals could potentially cause.

In the 1970s, grape seed extract was quite popular due to the French Paradox, which aimed at studying the link between high fat diets and low percentage of heart disease. It was found that although the French had a high fat diet, they had low heart disease rates due to their daily consumption of wine.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, consumers should consume grape seed extract pills that have 40-80% percproanthocyanidins.

One of the best things about using grape seed extract is that it has often been associated with a range of potential health benefits. Thus, even if it is utilized as a hair loss agent, consumers may experience various other potential benefits.

There are grape seed extract supplements available nowadays. This has made the consumption of this natural alternative easy and efficient. There are also supplements such as resveratrol, which is also believed to be a powerful antioxidant, that contains grape seed extracts.
