Grapeseed Extract is an inexpensive, very potent antioxidant for horses requiring immune support. It helps protect against tissue damage from oxidative stress resulting from free radicals generated during equine exercise, immune system activity or environmental exposures.
Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals, molecules that have a free, unpaired electron. Free radicals are very reactive and attack other molecules in their quest to regain their lost electrons.
The horse's body uses free radicals normally in a variety of reactions including energy generation, immune system responses, and as signaling molecules for nerves, or to control blood vessel dilation. The body also uses vitamins (A, E, C), antioxidant substances like Glutathione and antioxidant enzyme systems to control the levels of free radicals. If imbalance occurs between the generation of free radicals and antioxidant control, tissue damage can result.
