ABOUT THE MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS
RED VINE (Vitis vinifera)
The red vine presumably originated in Western Asia, more specifically from the area between the Caspian Sea and Asia Minor, where its cultivation is believed to have begun, then spreading its way West, towards Europe, and eventually making its way around the world. Knowledge of the medicinal value of red vine dates back to the ancient Romans, who made extensive use of the various parts of the vine in their treatments. Today, modern science has authenticated the many therapeutic benefits of red vine, especially in the area of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Many studies have focused on the vine in recent decades, particularly the polyphenols in grapes. It contains indeed resveratrol, OPC (Oligo proanthocyanidins) and flavonoids such as quercetin. It has been shown since the 80s, when studies in France, the OPC could relieve symptoms of varicose veins and venous shortcomings. More recently, grape leaf extracts showed similar results. A trial has assessed that the daily intake of 360 mg of extract for a period of twelve weeks induces reduction of edema and swelling of the legs in people suffering from chronic venous insufficiency. However, the composition of vine leaves can vary widely and affect the content of active compounds. In 2008, more than a hundred samples were analyzed in a study and showed that the grape leaves contain, on average, 0.6 % to 3.5 % of flavones, 0.25 to 1.45 % anthocyanins, and 4.6 % 18.9 % polyphenols. This is why the VARI-PREV capsules BIO-VEGA integrate 150 mg of an extract standardized to 80 % OPC (from 50:1, QCE* 7 500 mg) to ensure an optimal supply of active compounds.
