A novel grape seed extract is enriched in procyanidins, has total polyphenols of less than 70%, and has a low degree of polymerization (dp). Other fractions of the extract have minimal polyphenols, fiber, and protein, but contain more than 90% sugars. In some specific examples, the individual extracts are obtained by sequential ultrafiltration of a water extract of the grape seeds. A first ultrafiltration provides a first permeate (Fraction A) enriched in sugars which is useful as a flavorant, and a first retentate. The first retentate is reconstituted and subjected to a second ultrafiltration at a higher molecular weight cutoff to produce a second permeate (Fraction B) that is enriched in low molecular weight polyphenols, and a second retentate (Fraction C) that is enriched in seed fiber. The Fractions are individually suitable for different nutraceutical products, or can be combined with each other in any combination and/or with other nutraceutical agents to enhance vascular and cognitive health.

A commission program can include an asymptotic component when calculating compensation for distributors. An asymptotic leg can extend to infinity without exceeding a target percentage. A distributor can be compensated based on selected distributors in the compensated distributors downline. Recurring non-contiguous inclusion of distributors can be applied. A random component can be incorporated into the compensation program. The program can include innovative techniques going beyond conventional systems to better provide a balance between distributor motivation and sustainability of the program.

Muscadine grape extracts are disclosed that have antioxidant properties. The extracts are a mixture of extracts from bronze and purple muscadine grapes that unexpectedly increase the solubility of ellagic acid in the mixture. Solvent extracts are obtained in some examples by water extracting the pomaces of the grapes from which the juice has substantially been removed. Further surprising increases in ellagic acid solubility can also be obtained by adding an additional source of anthocyanins to the extract, for example by including in the composition an extract of whole purple muscadine grapes from which substantial amounts of the juice have not been removed. Other additional sources of anthocyanins include blueberries, blackberries and raspberries; the additional source of anthocyanins can be obtained from a fruit processing waste stream to increase the efficiency of the production process.

Disclosed is a composition for use as an antioxidant, such as for use as an anti-aging supplement. The composition can include a muscadine (Vitis rotundifolia) pomace extract having a polyphenol content of at least 2% and trans-resveratrol from a source other than muscadine with a minimum purity of at least 5%. In an example, the ratio of muscadine pomace extract polyphenols to trans-resveratrol is in the range of 0.1/1 to 10/1 (weight to weight), thereby providing a composition with antioxidant activity. Also disclosed are methods of producing antioxidant compositions. These methods can include combining a muscadine pomace extract having a polyphenol content of at least 2% and resveratrol from a source other than muscadine with a minimum purity of at least 5% at a ratio in the range of 0.1/1 to 10/1 (weight to weight), thereby providing a composition with antioxidant activity.
