OPCs are the strongest antioxidant known, and are twenty times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times stronger than Vitamin E! Pine bark extract, grape seed extract, and quercetin may contribute to good cellular health. OPCs have the single most potent radical scavenging effect (RSE) than other so-called super antioxidants that are on the market today.
One (1) OPC capsule contains 75 mg of Pine Bark Extracts, 75 mg of Grape Seed Extract and 15 mg of Quercetin (quercitin).
Directions: Take one (1) capsule twice daily on an empty stomach, or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Proanthocyanidins (Procyanidins, Proanthocyanidin), Polyphenols and OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins):
Proanthocyanidins (procyanidins), refer to a larger class of polyphenols, called flavanols, in which occur PCOs (proanthocyanidin oligomers) or OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), the simplest flavanols. More complex polyphenols, having the same polymeric building block, form the group of tannins. Flavanols are distinguished at the core molecule by the hydroxyl group as opposed to the ketone near same position on the pyran ring in the generally yellow class of flavonoids. Colorless PCOs or OPCs are a strictly defined group of 3 flavanols naturally occurring as a mix of monomers, di-mers, and tri-mers of the catechin building block, which is a 4x-hydroxylation of the flavan-3-ol core.
PCOs or OPCs were discovered in 1947 by Prof. Jacques Masquelier, who developed and patented techniques for the extraction of oligomeric proanthocyanidins from pine bark and grape seeds.
Proanthocyanidins, including the lesser bioActive/bioAvailable polymers (4 or more catechines) represent a group of condensed flavan-3-ols, such as procyanidins, prodelphinidins and propelargonidins, that can be found in many plants, most notably apples, maritime pine bark, cinnamon, aronia fruit, cocoa beans, grape seed, grape skin (procyanidins and prodelphinidins), and red wines of Vitis vinifera (the European wine grape). However, bilberry, cranberry, black currant, green tea, black tea, and other plants also contain these flavonoids.
Quercetin, a flavonol, is a flavonoid, in other words, a plant pigment with a molecular structure like or derived from flavone. It is found in fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains. Some foods which contain quercetin include cilantro, red onion, cranberry, lingonberry, black plums, sweet potato, bilberry, broccoli, black tea, green tea, red delicious apples, kale and blueberry.
