Grape Seed Extract protects against fatty liver disease
The most common liver disease on the planet is nonalcoholic fatty liver disease [NAFLD] - commonly referred to as 'fatty liver' in everyday parlance. Fatty liver starts relatively harmlessly, but can develop into a serious condition. Grape Seed Extract to the rescue.
There is no adequate medical treatment for fatty liver, but in theory supplementation with anti-inflammatory natural polyphenols could slow down the process. So doctors at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in Iran conducted a small experiment on people with fatty liver - or steatosis, as the condition is also known.
The researchers divided 30 patients with steatosis into 2 groups. The patients in the control group took one gram of vitamin C daily for 3 months, the patients in the experimental group took capsules with 100 milligrams of Grape Seed Extract daily.
We cannot determine from the publication how many capsules the test subjects received daily. Anyway, if we had known that, we still didn't know much. The researchers made their Grape Seed Extract themselves and do not give any specifications about the concentration of active substances in their extract.
The subjects used their supplements in addition to their regular medication.
