Natural Therapies DONZ OPC Super Antioxidant is a unique blend of grape seed and plant extracts containing proanthocyanidins, phytonutrients and antioxidants which may have powerful body protection and health promoting benefits.
The DONZ NATURAL OPC Grape Seed Extract is naturally extracted, so there are NO chemical or solvent residues. DONZ recommend that a grape seed extract contains 95% OPC consisting of monomers and oligomers.
OPC bioflavonoids were first noticed in the laboratory because they have the uncanny ability to support healthy strong blood vessel walls. The DONZ OPC recipe has optimised absorption of the Grape Seed Extract by including varied Bioflavanoids, Minerals and other synergising ingredients.
OPC’s (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) are a set of very powerful bioflavonoid complexes that perform as free radical scavengers in the human body. Free radicals are simply oxygen atoms that are robbed of an electron through the body’s natural metabolic processes.
What happens is the free radical takes an electron from the membrane of a body tissue and by doing so, produces yet another free radical, which then is obliged by its charge to seek out another electron – in your body. What results is a cascade of oxidations – literally rusting body tissues. This is such a pernicious and ubiquitous phenomenon in the body, that free radical oxidation has recently been proposed as the sole source of chronic degenerative disease.
Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, in fact antioxidants in general, are structured in such a way that they are able to donate electrons freely without altering their stability. What this means is that antioxidants can stabilise free radicals without themselves becoming dangerous. In fact, antioxidants will go about donating electrons until they have no more; one antioxidant molecule is able to neutralise many free radicals.
