OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) grape seed extract describes a group of secondary plant substances with an antioxidant effect. OPC ensures that the human body remains vital and protects cells from free radical damage.
The advantages of the plant substance:
- Protection against UV radiation,
- Anti-ageing effect,
- Support the immune system
- Anti-inflammatory effect
- Antioxidant properties
A high OPC amount is mainly found in leaves, grapes, red berries and barks. The substance is also present in almost every plant. However, the human organism cannot produce this nutrient on its own.
In addition, grape seed extract from food is poorly absorbed by the body! ActiNovo’s OPC is obtained from pure grape seed extract. The product contains a dosage of 200 mg per 10 ml daily dose.
The same amount of OPC is also contained in 815 ml of cranberry juice.
Research has shown that OPC is very powerful in protecting your cells against oxidative damage. Oxidative damage occurs through natural energy metabolism, but also through environmental toxins such as air pollution, cigarette smoking, or alcohol consumption. If there is no neutralisation and no counteraction, the human metabolic processes can be impaired.
OPC has the ability to bind with the protein collagen. Collagen has a positive influence on the connective tissue and the elasticity of the skin. The plant substance OPC also has anti-aging properties.
Some studies show that the antioxidant properties of OPC can help maintain cardiovascular health. The plant antioxidant fights free radicals and acts as a true protective shield.
