“Vineyard Seed” Is the SECRET to Better Aging
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Remember sitting in your high school biology class and hearing about cells?
Your teacher probably taught you that they go through three stages: birth, growth, and death.
But here’s the strange thing… certain cells in your body forget that last step and refuse to die.
These “zombie cells” (the technical term is senescent cells) can not only speed up aging, they can also set you up for some of the most dangerous diseases around.
Fortunately, there are ways to eliminate senescent cells and STOP the accelerated aging and diseases they cause.
It all starts with this “vineyard seed.”
Senescent cells dump all sorts of chemicals into your body that increase inflammation and age you faster.
If you wonder why your brain turns to mush as you age, or your arteries harden, or your joints feel achy in the morning, senescent cells are to blame.
But grape seed extract could help slow down this aging process and prevent disease.
A new study, in the journal Nature Metabolism, points the way. The researchers have identified molecules called senolytics which have the power to cause senescent cells to finish their life cycle and die.
And grape seed extract just so happens to contain a super strong senolytic.
The study team isolated a compound called procyanidin C1 (PCC1) from grape seed extract to see if it could extend the lifespan of mice.
To test this theory, they exposed a group of mice to radiation and gave half of them PCC1.
The mice who received PCC1 had fewer senescent cells and fewer blood markers associated with senescent cells.
The PCC1 mice also had better exercise capacity and muscle strength. All of this led to a 64.2 percent extended lifespan for the mice taking grape seed extract.
What this study shows is that by removing senescent cells, you can extend your HEALTHspan (not just your lifespan!).
Getting rid of zombie cells means you can avoid diseases that can drag down your health AND help you fight the aging process as a whole.
If you’d like to try grape seed extract, you can find it for under $5 from Swanson Vitamins here.

For YEARS, modern medicine essentially ignored the gastrointestinal tract. Sure, it’s where you digest and absorb your food. But that was the end of the story.
