Nature’s Way Grapefruit is a dietary supplement which contains the grapefruit seeds extract, carefully tested and produced according to the highest quality standards. Numerous studies demonstrate that this kind of preparations shows antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and cytoprotective influence on the mucous membrane of the stomach.
Main active substances from grapefruit seeds are limonoids and flavonoids. Naringin is the predominant flavonoid in grapefruit seeds which shows high antioxidant potential affecting reduction in oxygen free radicals level. Grapefruit extract is a rich source of vitamin C.
Cytoprotection consists in the protection of cells against harmful factors by the substances provided into the body system. An example can be any substance which fights stomach ulcers by increasing the protection of mucous membranes. A substance of such potential is naringenin present in grapefruits or metabolised in the human body system from naringin, which can be also found in large quantities in these fruits.
Naringin is the most important flavonoid present in grapefruit extracts which shows a wide spectrum of activities, including lipolysis improvement, cholesterol reduction, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and antiseptic properties. The compound blocks particular liver enzymes involved in the metabolism of numerous substances, which is why it is not recommended to take drugs with grapefruit juice. Naringin can prolong the action of other active substances and intesify or reduce their effects.
Limonoids are a unique subset of triterpenes which shows a wide spectrum of biological activity, i.a. they have antibacterial, antifungal, anti-malarial, anticancer, antiviral properties and many other pharmacological activities which were proven by tests on humans.
During intrasystemic balance, oxygen free radicals play important role in many biological processes. Their accumulation under the influence of different factors impairs oxidoreductive balance and results in their negative influence on every body cell. They cause DNA changes, damage cellular structures and initiate cancer development. The product is a source of many substances which neutralise oxygen free radicals, i.a. flavonoids, triterpenes and vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid can be a donor of two electrones, which is why it is involved in numerous enzymatic reactions, as a cofactor.Vitamin C is the most popular antioxidant. Due to its strong antioxidant properties, vitamin C scavenges free radicals, reduces damages to DNA, proteins and lipids and reduces the risk of cancers as well as development and progression of cardiovascular diseases.
Moreover, vitamin C is crucial for the proper functioning of the immune system, biosynthesis of collagen and carnitine, synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters (e.g. noradrenaline), increases absorption of iron and calcium, rebuilts tissues during wound healing, regulates blood pressure, promotes healthy gums, reduces blood sugar druing hyperglycaemia and fasting blood sugar in diabetics.
