Collagen Formation: Vitamin C plays an integral role in the formation of collagen. Collagen is a major structural protein, important for strong connective tissue to help maintain skin integrity and appearance.*
Skin Health: Vitamin C helps the formation of connective tissue and supports the healing process of minor wounds.*
Potent Antioxidant: The antioxidant properties of grape seed and vitamin C help protect against free radical damage. Grape seeds contain high levels of procyanidins, which are naturally occurring bioflavonoids that are also found in fruits and vegetables.*
Circulation Support: Grape seed helps assist with the maintenance of a healthy circulatory system, which may assist with periodic leg swelling.*
Swisse Ultiboost Grape Seed has been formulated based on scientific evidence to provide a multi-purpose formula in a convenient dose.
