Raena Morgan: What is the difference between resveratrol and grapeseed extract?

Dr. Anil Shrikhande: Grapeseed extract has a different kind of polyphenols called procyanidines, which have a very high affinity for stopping the free radical chained reaction.

RM: Okay.

AS: And also provide you more muscle vasorelaxation, vasodilation of the arteries in which the blood flows.

RM: Would it be better to take the grapeseed extract as opposed to the resveratrol?

AS: Yeah. I would say so. The current knowledge which we have that grapeseed extract provides more protection than resveratrol.

RM: Oh, it does? All right. Thank you, Doctor.
