extract (OPC's) has proven itself to be a very powerful product over the last few years, and can support the body
in a number of ways;
May assist with blood circulation
Reduces free radical activity within
Protects against collagen & elastin breakdown
Grape seed extract is a poly - phenolic compound that is unusually high
in plant flavonoids called oligomeric
procyanidins, better known as
these polyphenolic compounds are found in many foods we eat such as peanuts, berries, grapes and purple grape
juice, there just isn't the concentration necessary of these powerful antioxidants to make a difference to
our health - until now!
It has long been known that the French tend to live an
unusally healthy and long life - even though their diet is rich in saturated fats and alcahol, namely red
wine. Only recently has it become known to researchers and
scientists alike that the active poly - phenolic compounds within red wine are the key to unravelling this long

didn't dissappoint! Cellular breakdown and DNA degredation was reduced by as much as 30%, but more importantly
subsequent testing with mammals and finally humans resulted in similar results. Learn more about how grapeseed extract can assist with your health...
What's even more interesting to note is
that much of the damage that takes
place within our bodies is driven by oxidative stress, brought about by unchecked free radical
activity. Being the biological vessels that we are, much of the
aging that occurs within us is due to collagen beginning to cross link, and this happens in our skin, between our
organs and within our vascular system.
Our Grape Seed Formulation Better Than Most?
Our product is
made from the Muscadine Grape seed (vitus Rotundifolia) and delivers an average of 500mg per serving. Very few competitors can offer an
ORAC rating of 30,500 µm/100 g per serving. This grape seed extract has up to 40
times the polyphenolic antioxidant activity of other formulations!
seed product is sourced from a GMP certified and HACCP approved company. Quality is
thus gauranteed with our product.
We do not use fillers within our grapeseed
product - so no quercetin, silica, oatbran, glidants, and other such ingredients. This makes for a
higher quality preparation, but a more difficult capsule to produce.
One of the most powerful
and effective pure grapeseed products available in Australia.
Why Grape seed is a "Must Use"
One of the main reasons grape seed extract OPC has become so
popular amongst scientists and consumers alike is due to the very wide spectrum of nutrients that it
contains. This vast array of health giving nutrients include protein, lipids and carbohydrates - but
most importantly the polyphenols. As
mentioned earlier, weight for weight, grape seed extract has an anti-oxidant rating that is high - very high in fact. As it stands, it
is 50 times more powerful
an anti oxidant than vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than even vitamin
As much of
the foods we consume of late are virtually bereft of the nutrients we require, it almost is becoming
mandatory to supplement in order to maintain health. It has long been known that these polyphenols act
as "nature's biological response
modifiers" as they have the ability to assist the body combat allergens, viruses and various
Grape seed concentrate (OPC) is also known to contain
high levels of procyanidins, and are well known to bestow anti-inflammatory,
anti-arthritic qualities, thus
preventing the rate at which our skin and collagen ages. Only compounds with a very high ORAC
rating (a metric of measuring free radical scavenging ability), can make such claims. If you
Interestingly enough, grape seed extract contains substantial amounts of an amazing
compound called trans
-resveratrol, a compound that has been shown to actively turn off the aging gene within the
body (SIRT1 gene), and is currently being researched by big pharma and scientists alike.
Studies so far that included mice and rheuss monkeys show on average a life span increase of 35% -
studies are now including humans also.
Grape seed extract (OPCs) is quickly becoming recognized by
many reseachers and consumers alike to be a food supplement that is well worth
