Autoimmune and rheumatoid arthritis are characterized by the immune system in a funk and now attacking joints. Standard medical treatment poisons the immune cells so they don’t work and ends their inappropriate attack on joints. A new animal study demonstrates that grape seed extract1 can help solve the source of the problem.
It is one of the wonders of modern nutritional science, that nutrients known to be beneficial to health are now showing they have a potent ability to regulate cell functions. In this study, grape seed extract was able to regulate the function of the T cells involved with the attack against the joints. Essentially, it turned off the inflammatory signaling that was wrong and helped stop the damaging process at the source.
The study authors concluded that grape seed extract “may serve as a possible novel therapeutic agent for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis.”
