Do you like grapes? I adore it, but there is one thing, driving me crazy while eating grapes – those little seeds inside, which I sometimes crunch or directly swallow. To be honest, I am not entirely happy with their slightly bitter taste.

Main grape seed oil compounds

By the way, did you know that the most valuable element in grapes is namely the grape seed! From that point of view, it’s not a good idea to remove seeds, while eating grapes!


And those, crunched by you are most efficient from a health perspective!


I’ve already mentioned linoleic acid – it’s worth saying a few more words about it, as it should have a separate central chapter if you were reading a book about the grape seed.

Linoleic acid is an omega 6 fatty acid (read about castor oil, as well) and converts into gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), where borage oil is a “champion.”

Another critical component is vitamin E – a victorious “warrior” against free radicals.

Although stressing on those two compounds, there is much more of them, like micro and macro elements, proteins, provitamin A, vitamin C an B.

All this combined is a natural treasure, which you shouldn’t miss! Let’s see why, in the next topic.
