Free radicals are highly reactive compounds that form in your body in response to poor diet, sunlight, stress and inflammation.
Grape seed extract is a source of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) and has antioxidant activity, which may therefore assist in protecting the body from the damaging effect of free radicals.
This formula provides the extract equivalent of 12g of dried Grape seed in each convenient capsule.

Q1 What are the OPCs in Grape seeds, and why are they
A1 Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are a family of natural
antioxidant fl avonoid compounds that occur in Grape seeds.
Grape seed extract has been used traditionally in Western
herbal medicine to support blood vessels and to help maintain
healthy circulation throughout your body. It can also protect
tiny blood vessels in your body known as capillaries and help
to maintain circulation to your hands and feet.
Q2 What are free radicals, and how can they cause oxidative
A2 Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can form in
your body when it’s exposed to sunlight, computer screens,
pollution, stress and some natural metabolic processes. These
molecules can interact with other molecules in your cells,
leading to a form of cellular damage called oxidative damage.
The collagen structures in capillaries are especially vulnerable
to this kind of damage. Grape seed extract may help maintain
collagen structure. Collagen is a support structure of the skin
and blood vessels.
Q3 What are fl avonoid antioxidants, and how do they work?
A3 Flavonoid antioxidants are a group of plant compounds
that are most often found in brightly coloured fruits and
vegetables. They work by neutralising – sometimes called
“scavenging”- free radical molecules before oxidative damage
Different types of antioxidants neutralise different types
of free radicals; so it is important to eat a wide variety of
antioxidant-rich foods to help reduce free radical damage.
