OPC – beauty from within
For some time now, OPC has been gaining on its popularity. The vital substance OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidin), known as a powerful antioxidant, can be found in a highly concentrated form in grape seed extract and is associated with many positive properties: anti-inflammatory effect, scavenger of free radicals, offering relief for skin problems and allergies, offering protection for cells, connective tissue and blood vessel protection, as well as general anti-aging agent, promoting a youthful appearance, slowing down the aging process, especially of the skin, and consequently providing ‘beauty from within’. Many doctors and nutritionists therefore recommend this plant substance as a regular dietary supplement.
The advantages of OPC
Antioxidants have a positive effect on our organism and there is no doubt about it.
The advantages at a glance:
- OPC contributes to skin improvements
- Grape seed extract offers relief for skin problems, allergies, wrinkles and problems with blood vessels
- OPC belongs antioxidant phytochemicals
- Scavenger of free radicals
- Anntioxidants help with chronic inflammation
- Antioxidants strengthen the immune system
Secondary phytochemicals such as the OPC in grape seed extract are particularly effective as antioxidants. The main effect of OPC is catching “free radicals“. Free radicals are responsible for the oxidative stress in our body and thus u.a. for the aging process, inflammatory processes, cell degeneration and the "destruction" of normal molecules and structures, e.g. in the tissue. Simply put, if a free radical interacts with a molecule, a new molecule that is formed is either useless or causes damage to the body. We can compare oxidative stress with car rust or a banana turning brown, when exposed to air. The OPC serves to slow down or prevent this oxidation. OPC benefits are cell protection and a slowdown of inflammatory processes, as well as the formaton of non-functioning molecules that weaken or destroy our cells and tissue.
Grape seed extract - The health you can see
Another positive effect of OPC is the improved appearance and overall health of the skin, positive effect on the connective tissue and a visibly smoother and more tight skin. Grape seed extract not only acts as an antioxidant and from the inside, but actually promotes good health.
With vitamins and minerals in the form of food supplements it is easier to provide the needed micro-nutrients to the body.
The consequences of lack of micronutrient usually reflect in poor physical health, bad mood and feeling of weakness.
Recommended for athletes and individuals with poor diet or low energy intake.
Suitable also for individuals with a stressful lifestyle and those who are often exposed to difficult weather conditions.
The food is nowadays very poor, in terms of vitamins and minerals, therefore our organism often lacks certain micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals ...).
