Over fifty years ago in the Bordeaux region of France, Dr Jacques Masquelier made one of the most signifi cant discoveries in nutritional science. He isolated a powerful antioxidant, cell and tissue protector, known today as Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) Flora has formulated Beyond Grape Seed® by blending Masquelier’s® original OPCs with a full spectrum of biofl avonoids from bilberries and cranberries Beyond Grape Seed® helps avert premature aging by blocking destructive enzymes and reducing free radical-induced weakening of collagen, an essential and major component of skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments OPCs do this by donating electrons to unstable free radicals to neutralize them without the danger of becoming unstable themselves OPCs offer protection to collagen and at the same time support the body’s ability to maintain and enhance the health of connective tissue and the elasticity of skin The OPCs in Beyond Grape Seed® help strengthen the entire capillary system, preventing leakage from vessels in the legs, eyes and skin into surrounding tissue OPCs also help repair and prevent arterial lesions, keeping the blood vessel walls smooth, which helps prevent plaque build-up, as cholesterol can no longer become trapped.
