OPC is short for Oligomeric ProCyandins and the 150 means that each capsule contains 150 mgs of Grape Seed Extract which is a very powerful antioxidant. Other powerful antioxidants are Vitamins A, E, and C. The purpose of an antioxidant is to inhibit the proliferation of free radicals which are extremely active molecules that lack an electron in their outer shells. These molecules go around robbing from healthy cells which results in tissue damage, excess rancidity and premature aging. Free radicals are known to cause over 60 major diseases as a result of the damage they do to the cell lining. Unlike Vitamins A, E, and C, which carry out their antioxidant duties in a passive manner, Grape Seed Extract is aggressive in the scavenging of free radicals as it actively seeks out and neutralizes free radicals before they can cause harm. In addition Grape Seed Extract has the ability to repeat its activities several times, like a repeating rifle, while other anti-oxidants are single shots. Our OPC 150 is 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than Vitamin C, milligram for milligram. It is highly effective against free radical damage due to pollution, chemicals, toxins, additives, dyes and microwaves. OPC 150 builds the integrity of blood vessel walls and therefore is useful in cases of retinopathy, varicose veins, slow-healing injuries, as well as pre and post surgeries. It also reduces the damage to red blood cells and healthy tissue during chemo and radiation treatments.
OPC’s affix themselves to both the inside and the outside of cell membranes. Specifically connecting themselves to the cells of blood vessels and connective tissues, they stand as vanguards to better health in a world of deteriorating ozone levels, and the threat of ever increasing chemical and electromagnetic pollution.
Grape Seed Extract: is the most powerful and most potent antioxidant on the market.
Milk Thistle: purges the liver and gall bladder while aiding digestion and skin conditions.
Bilberry Leaf: purges the kidney and increases blood flow. It also aids several eye maladies.
Co-Q10: is an anti-oxidant that assists in heart strength and energy production.
As a preventive: most people will do well on 1mg of OPC per pound of body weight, or one to two capsules per day. If an active degenerative condition exists or chronic fatigue, the dosage should be doubled for the first 60 to 90 days.
