Antioxidants are excellent during a juice fast.

These are naturally present in fruits and vegetables. The most commonly known are vitamins C, E and beta-carotene. Flavinoids have been recently discovered as a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing and damaging free radicals, and are naturally present in vegetables and fruits. One of the most powerful flavinoids is proanthocyanidins. The leading source is found in pine bark and extracts from grape seeds, grape seeds being the best. The proanthocyanidins and gallicesters, which are found only in grape seed extract, enhance the power of vitamins C and E, strengthen capillaries, enhance circulation, improve eyesight, restore skin elasticity and softness, and block blood platelet and LDL oxidation. At the turn of the century, Johanna Brandt, in the revolutionary book, The Grape Cure, wrote that “grapes seem to ferret out the most deep-seated cause of trouble and drive it from the system.”
