Effects of Free Radicals on the System
Dr. Robert Youngblood, M.D., board of certified
plastic surgeon states: “Because of free radicals
I have a thriving practice in plastic surgery. Not only
do free radicals speed up the aging process internally,
they also cause the aging process to accelerate externally.”
Free radicals are highly reactive oxygen
molecules, formed as by-products of normal metabolic reactions.
They act on the cells and tissues of the body to produce
significant damage in a process known as oxidation. Oxygen
is a good thing, but if you want to see firsthand the damage
it can cause, slice open an apple and let its sit for half
an hour. The brown coloring is a sign of oxidation. And
as proof of the effectiveness of an antioxidant vitamin,
notice how rubbing the exposed flesh of the apple with a
vitamin C rich dose of a fresh lemon prevents this browning.
Free radicals are produced in the body by fat metabolism,
sunlight, radiation, air pollution, harmful chemicals, food
additives, tobacco smoke, infection, over-exercise, stress
and numerous other factors.
Free radicals cause tremendous irritation and damage to
virtually every kind of tissue throughout our bodies. They
damage cell membranes, and alter DNA which changes the way
cells replicate. Cellular changes that result from regular
bombardment by free radicals can lead to various degenerative
Power to the Rescue
are substances which neutralize unstable radical oxygen
molecules that attack the body’s cells. When these
free radical molecules go unchecked they degrade the tissue
strengthening collagen within the body joints, skin and
organs... even worse, free radicals re-program DNA and are
implicated a more than 60 diseases that plague mankind.
Free radical damage can result in inflammation of the muscles,
joints and other tissues, cause improper functioning of
the circulatory system, nervous system (including brain
cells) and immune system debility.
According to Dr. Denham Harman, MD, PhD., the average life
expectancy of many species can be increased by more than
20 percent by adding antioxidants to the diet.
There are many health benefits from taking powerful antioxidants
such as OPC:
- It enhances cell vitality and gives the
body a better chance to fight and to naturally heal itself.
- OPCs help fight free radicals, dramatically
reducing tissue inflammation, swelling as well as binding
with and protecting the vital protein collagen. OPC is known
throughout Europe as the youth nutrient because of its ability
to revitalize collagen. Collagen, one of the body’s
most widespread proteins, is the primary component of the
joints and skin. Interlacing collagen fibers give your skin
and joints their strength and youthful elasticity. OPCs
bind to collagen and helps collagen fibers re-build their
- In tests, the compound helped build resistance
and boosted the immune systems by as much as 50 percent.
Specifically, it increased concentration of natural killer
cells, the body’s first line of defense.
- An English researcher found that the antioxidant
makeup of OPCs inhibit the formation of one of the major
carcinogens of cigarette smoke.
- Overall joint function and circulation
is improved. It strengthens capillaries, veins and blood
vessel walls, including those that supply the heart.
- OPCs prevent the oxidation of low density
lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol) in
the blood. By preventing its oxidation, OPCs keep the LDL
from adhering to artery walls. They also indirectly inhibit
various enzymes that can damage the walls of the tiny blood
vessels of the body, thus preventing seepage of fluid into
adjoining tissues (capillary fragility). By doing so, OPCs
helps improve circulation and improve blood flow in the
- OPCs promote healthy brain function. It
readily crosses the blood brain barrier to protect brain
cells and blood vessels in the brain from free radical damage.
- Many doctors are now recommending OPCs
as a pre-operative protocol since OPC use appears to reduce
post operative healing time, decreases resulting scar tissue
and post operative complications.
- Grape seed extract has also been found
to be of potential value for improving proper functioning
of the eyes- even useful in reducing the effects of glare
from bright lights.
- Another important feature of grape seed
extract is its ability to act synergistically with vitamin
C. The combination of OPCs and vitamin C facilitates wound
Composition of OPC
OPCs is the trade name for Oligomeric
Proanthrocyanidin (patent #4,698,360), a special family of
bioflavonoids plus 40 other biologically beneficial components
which provide the body with nutritional tools to neutralize
free radicals so that the body can renew itself and function
Grape seed extract and pine bark extract are two of the most
potent sources of proanthrocyanidins. Our OPCs capsules contain
75 mg of Pine Bark from the bark of the French Maritime pine
tree , 75 mg of concentrated grape seed extract and 15 mg
of quercitin, a powerful and very valuable bioflavonoid which
is the major component in the herb Ginko Biloba. It helps
stabilize cell membranes helping to reduce the breakdown of
collagen and helps inhibit the release of histamine.
OPC has undergone extensive testing at such renowned research
centers as the Pastuer Institute and others. OPCs are highly
bio-available and remain in the body in an active state for
72 hours. It is a safe natural product with no adverse side
effects whatsoever, is non-toxic and is water soluble.
Quality of OPC
Commercial blends of OPCs are
more effective than others. Clinical experience has proven
that basic OPCs blended with special ‘protectors’
and given with enzymes provides best results. These boost
OPCs total effectiveness by up to 4 1/2 half times that of
common store bought blends and is only available from the
Florida Company. Our OPCs contain this most effective blend.
