The Story of a Unique Antioxidant


On May 18th, 1980 a cataclysmic event took place that would go down in history. The Mount St. Helens volcano in Washington State, USA erupted spewing mineral rich ash throughout the Pacific Northwest. The blast zone devastated plant and animal life in the region leaving a desolate moon-like landscape. After decades of adjustments and reformations new seedlings and organisms  started to appear. It was to be the re-birth of a new ecosystem, a new life being born with plants and animals and rivers and streams. The cycle of life is evident in all living things on earth and a volcanic eruption is no exception.

Although the surface life including trees, plants, and animals were desiccated, life underground weathered the blast. Surviving plants and animals rose out of the ash colonizing and catching hold of the earth and fertilizing a new virgin soil.  Soil un-depleted that was more nutrient rich providing healthier crops, vegetables and fruits. Mother nature has a way of providing what we need in a way we still strive to understand. Among these plants were the growth of new robust grapes which were planted by local vineyards and producing award winning wines.

Research grants were obtained from the University of Victoria and University of British Columbia along with the National Research council and Pacific Forestry Center.  Grape seeds from all over the world where gathered and compared to the grape seeds harvested from the vineyards in the Mount St. Helens region. This research lead to the discovery that grape seeds from the Mount St. Helens region showed unique properties of proanthocyanidins which had  a higher antioxidant effect then other sources.

More recent discoveries show Protovin™ as a key component in anti-aging medicine and is used both orally and topically to protect your health inside and out. There is more solid scientific evidence and published studies on the medicinal benefits of grape seed extract and its active ingredient, oligomeric proanthocyanidin,  than any other botanical to date.
