What Are Proanthenols (OPC’s)?

Proanthenols are a powerful antioxidant that will fight off and destroy the free radicals in your body. Free radicals are incredibly destructive.  Free radicals damage our cells, which can mean premature aging, reduced immune function, inflammation, fatigue and ultimately degenerative disease.

“Indeed, an estimated 80 to 90 percent of all degenerative diseases involves free radical activity”.
-Jean Carper

Free radicals are indeed very destructive. They surge through your body out of control, attacking cells, turning fats rancid, rusting their proteins,  piercing their membranes and corrupting their genetic code until the cells become dysfunctional and often give up and die.
Excessive free radicals in the body will actually speed up the aging process. Did you ever wonder why those who smoke or drink excessively tend to look older than they actually are?  Smoking fills the body with free radicals, as do environmental pollutions, chemical or radiation exposure, and even many of the foods that we eat.

“Chemically, free radicals are molecules in the body that are missing an electron. They are desperately trying to snatch one from any other molecule. In doing so, they become molecular terrorists. They can be neutralized by antioxidants, compounds that give up one of their electrons, thus returning the free radicals to normal and stopping their cellular mayhem.”
-Jean Carper

Our primary defense is antioxidant nutrients, of which the most well known are Vitamins C and E. The biological activity of antioxidants is enormously important to our health. OPC’s are very powerful antioxidant free radical scavengers. They are as much as 50 times more potent than Vitamin E and 20 times more than Vitamin C. OPC’s are major protectors of collagen, the basic foundation of our blood vessels and all connective tissues such as skin, and ligaments around joints and tendons. In the battle against Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Proanthenols can play a very powerful role. They assist in keeping the blood cells in healthy condition, enabling them to properly carry nutrients and oxygen to every part of your body. Once this process begins to take effect, the body will be in a position to begin healing itself.

Proanthenols are available at many discount or department stores, however, all OPC’s are not created equal.

Being potent antioxidants, OPC’s are highly sensitive to environmental conditions. Processing and extraction technology, in fact, can be quite critical! Years of work by Berkem Laboratories have led to the current state of technology. Comparative assays demonstrate the Berkem process to be unsurpassed in providing the highest concentrations of oligomers, and typically, the very active dimers and trimers. Under the wrong conditions, these active materials can bind together to form higher groupings and, eventually, the tannins. While potentially active as antioxidants-tannins are in essence higher-order polymeric groupings of the same catechins and epicatechins-these molecules, in tannin form, may lose critical characteristics of solubility. Solubility is key to allowing the oligomers to travel to important parts of the body, including the blood stream, and to be readily accessible to blood vessels, skin, ligaments, etc.

Since I have had the unfortunate experience of suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I understand that you do not have time to waste with sub-standard treatments. This is why I only recommend the Proanthenols offered by Life Plus, who uses the extraction techniques developed by Berkem Laboratories in Southern France. Due to my personal success, I have confidence in them and can recommend them in good conscience.

All of their processing is actually overlooked by 10 Professional Doctors, who ensure as a team that the products being developed and offered are of the highest standards. Another important reason that Life Plus Proanthenols Bio-Complex stands out is the inclusion of CytoFlav-C, which is a blend of  nutrients including Lemon Bioflavonoids, Hesperidin, Rutin, Quercetin and Vitamin C.

Also, all Proanthenols BIO-COMPLEX products are formulated in the proprietary Life Plus PhytoZyme? tablet base. PhytoZyme base is a unique combination of concentrates containing numerous phytonutrients from over thirty different plants !!

The use of high quality patented extracts from both grape seeds and pine bark combined with the other unique synergistic nutrients in CytoFlav-C and the Life Plus PhytoZyme tablet base provide what I have found to be the best OPC product available anywhere. In addition, it only makes sense to take advantage of the various individual catechins that occur in both grape seed and pine bark extracts. Each of them have their value and the Life Plus formula takes advantage of both, where most products will try to save money at your expense by using only one or the other.

You are able to order your Proanthenols directly from Life Plus using an 800 #  or On-line with a secured server. They also ship very quickly!  You will usually receive your order in 3 to 5 days!

One other thing that impresses me about the Life Plus policy, is that if you do not experience the results that you are expecting, you will receive your money back! I thought that was really great, however, neither I, nor any of my clients have ever had to send the Proanthenols back, because they worked!!

The Detox Effect

Note: Using Proanthenols and MSM have been known to cause a detox effect in people. Multiple toxins within your cells may be released, as your body attempts to eliminate them. This of course is a desired effect, and will ultimately be one of the processes by which you feel better in the long run.

However, be aware that when you first begin to use the products, the detox effect may make certain people feel temporarily worse, as these toxins are released back into your blood stream and then eliminated from the body.

This process will not last very long, and varies from person to person. Please give us some feedback concerning your experience with the products, so that we can begin to measure the average detox length. You may also let us know if you do not experience the detox effect at all.

If you have any other questions about the Proanthenols that I did not answer here, you are welcome to call me personally. If you would like to order the Proanthenols, simply follow the instructions below.
