Grape seed has been used in chronic venous insufficiency caused by damaged valves in the veins carrying blood clotting and may also help keep veins and other food vessels from leaking. The blood vessel strengthening effect of grape seed extract may help to prevent and relieve hemorrhoids as well. Since it strengthens the wall of all blood vessels, Grape Seed Extract may also be effective in slowing retinopathy, the gradual breakdown of retinas in the eyes. Individuals with arteriosclerosis (a buildup of fat deposits in the arteries), diabetes or other conditions that increase the likelihood for damage to the small blood vessels in the eye are more likely to have serious vision problems as a result of that damage.
