Grape seed oil is derived from the fruit of the grape vine (Vitis vinifera), which is native to Asia. Since the days of the ancient Egyptians, grapes and grape seed oil have been valued for their nutritional and medicinal benefits. Here are a few of the health benefits you can get by consuming grape seed oil.


Grape seed oil is rich in flavonoids, which are potent chemical compounds that help prevent coronary heart disease.


Grape seed oil also has antioxidant properties that help fight the harmful effects of free radicals in the body. This in turn helps to slow down the ageing process and fight diseases.

Skin and Hair

Grape seed oil has moisturising properties, and has long been used as a home remedy for dry skin. It is also beneficial for use as a moisturising hair product.

Blood Tonic

Grape seed oil contains powerful compounds called oligomeric procyanidins that help prevent and correct damage to blood capillaries.

Lower Blood Pressure

Grape seed oil helps to lower blood pressure by helping to prevent the formation of blood clots, keeping the arteries open and pliable.
