OPC forte Grape Seed Extract Capsules
Vegan dietary supplement with high-dose grape seed extract and vitamin C.
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) are natural vital substances found in grape seeds and other plants. The positive characteristics are demonstrated by the "French paradox": despite a rather rich and high-fat diet, people living in France are less likely to suffer from heart disease than other European populations. This fact is attributed to increased red wine consumption in France and the oligomeric proanthocyanidins contained in the wine. However, this is not a licence for increased alcohol consumption: the positive properties of OPC are offset by the negative effects of alcohol; in addition, the OPC content in red wine is relatively low. By way of comparison, to absorb 330 mg of OPC - as contained in an OPC-forte capsule - you would have to drink between 180 and 1,800 glasses of red wine, depending on the type of wine.
In OPC forte, high-dose OPC is combined with vitamin C, which further synergistically supports the positive effects of OPC.
