Grape extract fight damage from high-fat diets

Recent studies show that consuming grape seed and skin extract (GSSE) can reverse the effects of kidney disease caused by high-fat diets. High-fat diets cause numerous ill effects on the body. This study focused on the effects of high-fat diets particular to the kidneys and found that the high-fat diet increased deposits of triglycerides, raised signs of distress, and depleted copper levels in the kidneys. Rats that were given GSSE (along with the high-fat diet) showed a partial reversal of the triglyceride deposition as well as repair of the damage caused. The powerful phenols found in GSSE are thought to be the cause of the positive effects. Read the full article here:
