Proanthocyanidins are polyphenols, which occur naturally in various plant food such as chocolate, red wine, apples, and cacao beans. These products are powerful antioxidant agents and display a strong reducing effect on oxidative stress. Proanthocyanidins are polymers composed of epicatechin, catechin, epigallocatechin, and gallocatechin monomers. Proanthocyanidins are also referred to as condensed tannins or procyanidins, which are plant pigments that impart blue, purple or red color to flowers & fruits.
 

Proanthocyanidins are primarily concentrated on the outer skin of seeds & tree barks to help in plant growth, color, and development of astringent taste to deter herbivores. These substances are majorly extracted from plant tissues by liquid/liquid extraction with the use of polar solvents or mechanical, enzyme, microwave & ultrasound seed treatment. The ease of obtaining proanthocyanidins by liquid/liquid extraction increases with the number of hydroxyl groups present in their molecular structure.
 

Proanthocyanidins have a beneficial effect on heart health and blood vessels, which should drive procyanidins industry growth. They offer high antioxidant activity, which is much greater than that of vitamin C and helps to maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Proanthocyanidins also exhibit antitumor, antiproliferative, and anti-inflammatory activities, which make them ideal for cancer treatment and prevention. Their ability to lower cholesterol levels, prevent ulcer formation, and protect the digestive & urinary systems should increase the procyanidins market demand as pharmaceutical agents.
 

Europe Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 requires the establishment of a European Medicine Agency to authorize medicinal products such as procyanidins for use in humans. In July 2016, the European Medicines Agency declared that the efficacy of cranberry extract in dealing with urinary tract infections was linked to the pharmacological activity of procyanidin metabolites and other cranberry constituents. The agency stated that procyanidin-free cranberry extracts also exhibit antiadhesive effects on urinary pathogens.

Improved blood circulation and skin cleansing property to trigger grape seed procyanidin demand

The procyanidins market is segmented on source into grape seed, cranberry, and pine bark extracts. Grape seed proanthocyanidins also referred to as grape seed extract, is produced by removing, drying, and crushing the seeds of red wine grapes. The seeds contain carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and 5% - 8% polyphenols such as procyanidins.
 

Global grape seed procyanidins market outlook surpassed USD 2.5 billion in 2018. Grape seed procyanidins offer various nutrients such as vitamins P & E, linoleic acid, and resveratrol, which have antiaging features and should accelerate procyanidins industry demand. The product has excellent cleansing properties and protects skin cells, which increase its suitability as an ingredient of natural facial cleansers. Grape seed extracts protect the skin from UV rays, improve blood circulation, and prevent scar formation, which should boost the procyanidin market demand.
 

Grape seed extract exerts various beneficial health effects such as protecting nerve cells from damage. It prevents the breakdown of collagen in blood vessels, ensuring their protection, the overall cardiovascular health, and lowering the risk of strokes or heart attacks. It helps lower the severity of nasal allergies by decreasing the production of histamine. Grape seed extracts help treat leg swelling, improve blood circulation, and do not have adverse interactions with medicine or food, which should increase the product demand.
 

Grape seed extracts promote wound healing and help treat acne, dry skin, spider veins & eczema. The antioxidant nature of this product is 50 times greater than that of vitamin C and 20 times greater than vitamin E, which promotes youthful skin, flexibility, elasticity, and cell health. This product helps reduce swelling caused by injury and prevents the breakdown of skin collagen, which should increase the procyanidins market share.

The proanthocyanidins industry size is bifurcated into type A and type B. B-type procyanidins are products with a higher proportion of B-type linkages in their chemical structure. These products are primarily found in pine bark, grape seed, apples, and cocoa. They contain subunits, such as catechin & epicatechin, linked to one another with a single C4-C8 or C4-C6 bond.
 

B-type products help improve blood flow and exhibit anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties. Regular product intake enhances leg vein function in individuals affected by varicose veins. It helps improve bone strength & formation in cases of bone debility caused by calcium deficiency. B-type products also offer protection from pathogens, improve night vision, and reduce iron levels in cases of excess iron buildup in the body, which should trigger the procyanidins market outlook.
 

B-type condensed tannins have the ability to expel internal parasites and parasitic worms from the body without any side effects. They protect cells from lipid peroxidation, enhances cell growth, and reduces cholesterol levels, which should trigger procyanidins industry trends. They maintain blood vessel health & capillary strength by preventing atherosclerosis caused by the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins. These products eliminate harmful free radicals and enhance the power of other antioxidants. B-type products offer natural protection from toxic substances, viruses, and cancer, which should boost the procyanidin market demand.
