In 1991 my clinic was promoting the use of antioxidants as I knew from first-hand experience how pivotal taking a grape seed OPC antioxidant on a daily basis was, and the essential role antioxidants play in preventative health, anti-aging and against degenerative diseases that involve free radical chain reactions.
Many supplements contain OPC that has been derived from pine bark which lacks the gallic esters of proanthocyanidins, recently described as the most powerful anti-oxidant known. Pine Bark has never been consumed as a food source. However grapes and their seeds with gallic esters have historically been a universal food and are still widely consumed today particularly in France, where that country enjoys a high quality of health and well-being in comparison with most other countries in the developed world.
The grape seed extract that is found in red wine has been implicated while researching these excellent health statistics as having contributed to the statistics. In fact the French paradox is a term that is commonly used when comparing their diet full of cheese, bread, meat, alcohol and with a high proportion of smokers, with their comparatively low rate of heart disease for example. Grapes and their seeds that are crushed in the process of wine making could create a research link to this paradox. Bioflavonoids and vitamin C occur naturally in fruits and vegetables. Rosehips are coupled with red and blue berries and these compounds complement each other to provide a range of phytonutrients, antioxidants, bioflavonoids and vitamin C.
For the above reasons, only Grape Seed Extract OPC was chosen for the DONZ Natural OPC™ Super Anti-Oxidant recipe. Many supplements have between 10 mg and 50 mg of grape seed extract per capsule and some are at a lower percentage. Our product DONZ Natural OPC™ Super Antioxidant contains 70 mg of standardized 95% proanthocyanidins grape seed extract per capsule, to ensure a stronger base for our unique recipe. Bromelain Digestive Enzyme is added to assist digestion which in turn may be helpful in terms of absorption. NZ Kelp completes the recipe and has minerals in phytonutrient form.
So please enjoy our product DONZ NATURAL OPC™ Super Anti-Oxidant, follow a healthy broad diet, lead an active life and God speed your good health.
