Why should I take OProCyn High-Potency OPC Formula?2016-10-10T19:50:32+00:00

OProCyn High-Potency OPC Formula contains twice (2X) the level of active OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin) ingredients of any supplement in the market. The unique combination and potency of the ingredients brought together in OProCyn not only act as potent antioxidants, but also promote your body’s production of its OWN (endogenous) natural antioxidants, bringing you the latest nutritional science for a multi-pronged approach to fighting the aging process. Research shows that OProCyn’s ingredients are key players in managing the way in which many of our genes function, both helping promote beneficial functions, while helping to inhibit non-beneficial ones.

Each dose of OProCyn High-Potency OPC Formula contains the highest level of OPCs of any nutritional supplement on the market today. OPCs are among the most valuable constituents of a healthy human diet. These ingredients are combined with carefully balanced quantities of potassium and other natural components, which together set up our pH-balanced, isotonic delivery system in order to bring you superior absorption when taken as directed on an empty stomach.

What are Polyphenols and OPCs?2019-05-08T10:36:12+00:00

Polyphenols are a very diverse and multi-functional group of active plant compounds (phytochemicals) with substantial health potential in many areas. OPCs (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) are a powerful subset of these phytochemicals which are present in diverse plant sources and found in the highest concentrations in grape seed and pine bark extract. They are 20 times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times stronger than Vitamin E as an antioxidant, but this action as a direct antioxidant is not the most important of their potential benefits. Their ability to modulate intracellular signaling pathways throughout the body is one of their most important functions and is being heavily researched. In addition, through the activation of Nrf2, the “cellular master regulator,”they have diverse actions on metabolic, immune and cellular-protective pathways in the body and help to re-establish signaling pathways to aid in healthy cellular and tissue function.

The most valuable OPC ingredients known are extracts of French Maritime Pine Bark, Grape Seeds and Red Grapes (our Red Grape Extract does not come from wine and is never fermented). In addition, Bilberry extract (containing potent anthocyanins) and Citrus Bioflavonoids provide two more powerful plant-extracted polyphenols. that add even more power and protective properties. OProCyn has combined high-quality sources of all these ingredients into a synergistic combination and is isotonically delivered for better absorption… giving you unprecedented potency-per-dose in our OProCyn™ High Potency OPC Formula – making it the most powerful isotonic OPC supplement on the market today.

A Note on Quality: As we will describe later, the QUALITY of the OPCs you buy is everything! Only high quality and purity of OPC ingredients like those used in OProCyn can give you the amazing benefits of OPCs that everyone is talking about. The scientific literature is very clear on this point.

How quickly can my body benefit from High-Potency OProCyn?2016-10-10T20:07:22+00:00

Because of OProCyn’s rapid absorbability and superior cellular bioavailability, the body gains benefit almost immediately. OProCyn delivers in two key ways:

  1. When mixed with the designated amount of water, the liquid is “isotonic,” which means it duplicates the fluid environment in our cells and blood stream regarding pH, electrolytes, etc. When taken on an empty stomach, this isotonic balance minimizes the production of stomach acid and digestive enzymes which could degrade the nutrient value and enables the nutrients in OProCyn to enter the body easily and with a high level of potency and bioavailability.
  2. Having isotonic qualities isn’t the only thing that’s important. You also need the quality and appropriate amounts of the ingredients. Because of the high quality of OPC ingredients used, OProCyn contains the highest level of active, beneficial components (oligomers and monomers) per dose of any OPC supplement on the market today – only these high levels can give you the cellular availability to benefit your body.

Is there such a thing as too much antioxidant intake?2016-10-10T19:59:45+00:00

Yes, it is possible to take too many antioxidants, especially taking too much of a single type of antioxidant such as Vitamin E or C. An excessive amount of a single antioxidant can actually cause pro-oxidation or cause creation of an excess of free radicals. As in everything, moderation is a good guide. There is less chance of pro-oxidation with OProCyn because the ingredients contain many different forms of antioxidants which have different properties and functions as opposed to a heavy dose of a single type of antioxidant. And with the barrage of chemicals, toxins, unhealthy foods and stress in our modern lives, almost everyone is challenged by an unhealthy excess of free radicals. To gain maximum benefit, simply follow the directions on the product label or take as guided by your health professional.

What sets OProCyn High-Potency OPC Formula apart from other bioflavonoid products?2016-10-10T20:03:40+00:00

This science-driven selection of high level of OPCs is unique to OProCyn. OProCyn contains the highest available purity and potency OPC ingredients from leading specialty research companies. This guarantees OProCyn’s quality. In addition to being powerful polyphenols, these individual OPCs have been shown to provide multiple, specific health benefits. OProCyn is also verified to be isotonic capable in its delivery system, which enables rapid and highly efficient absorption of the OPCs. With its foundation of exceptional, quality ingredients, OProCyn also has more active OPCs packed into a single serving than any other product on the market — in fact, OProCyn contains at least twice (2X) the level of OPCs per dose compared to the leading brands. The result is a high-potency, high-value formula that is designed for integrity-driven results.

Also, just because a nutrient is passing through the intestinal wall, does not guarantee that it can enter and benefit you on a cellular level – which is the important part. Because of the high quality of OPC ingredients used in OProCyn, it contains the highest level of active, beneficial components (Oligomers and Monomers) per dose of any OPC supplement on the market todayonly these high levels can give you the cellular bioavailability to benefit your body. It is simply not enough to just be “isotonic.” The high level of active components must also be in there!

What is a bioflavonoid?2015-09-22T05:38:57+00:00

Bioflavonoids are complex organic plant compounds. Plants and fruits differ in colors based on the specific bioflavonoids they contain. An ever-increasing number of clinical studies show how the bioflavonoids contained in the ingredients in OProCyn can proactively support your health.

What is an Antioxidant?2015-09-22T05:38:47+00:00

Antioxidants are free radical scavengers that serve to terminate free radical chain reactions. In short, antioxidants clean up or neutralize free radicals within our bodies. Consequently, the oxygen free radicals become short lived and their numerous pathways of damaging the body can be minimized.

Generally, direct antioxidants, in acting as terminators to damaging free radicals, are chemically transformed after they perform their tasks as free radical scavengers. They basically lose their potency in giving their lives to protect us. Most antioxidant molecules (like Vitamin E or Vitamin C, for instance) can neutralize just one or a few free radicals. A rare few antioxidants such as OPCs can neutralize over a hundred free radicals per OPC molecule and even recharge other antioxidants (like Vitamin C and Vitamin E) in the body to go back in and fight again. The negative effects of an excess of free radicals impacts everyone. We all need this antioxidant protection. But research shows there is more to what the OPCs in OProCyn can do for you…

…Because OPC can behave as a direct antioxidant and an indirect antioxidant. The major beneficial effect of OPCs is the indirect antioxidant action which works through stimulation of the 250 or more genes involved in the production of an army of antioxidant enzymes which are capable of greater, longer term protection against environmental, viral and other toxic insults to the body. This is a big deal when it comes to anti-aging and your health. And along with certain lifestyle changes, OProCyn™ gives our bodies the ability to fight back.

Is OProCyn™ High-Potency OPC Formula safe?2015-09-22T05:38:32+00:00

Yes. OPCs (Oligomeric ProanthoCyanidins) have been researched and used for over 40 years throughout Europe. Extensive safety studies have been conducted, revealing no evidence for human toxicity or allergic reactions. OProCyn is free of harmful chemicals, preservatives, fillers and alcohol. OProCyn should be taken as directed.

What contributes to an Excess Free Radicals and Cellular Aging?2019-05-08T10:36:12+00:00

What are some factors which lead to this excess of free radicals? Before modern times, the key contributors to an excess of free radicals were breathing, excessive exercise, aging and disease. Unfortunately, our modern way of life presents many more negative impacts toward this unhealthy excess of free radicals in our bodies. The following factors deliver extra exposure to free radicals:
● Air and water pollution
● Food and beverage additives
● Chemical preservatives in our foods
● Excess of sugar and processed carbohydrates in our diets
● Consuming excesses of the wrong types of fats and oils (such as omega-6 vegetable oils)
● Household and industrial chemicals
● Unhealthy chemicals in most personal hygiene and beauty products
● Fungicides and herbicides in our food
● Excess UV rays
● GMO foods
● Unmanaged stress

Why Can an Excess of Free Radicals Impair My Health and contribute to Cellular Aging?2016-10-10T20:12:39+00:00

The problem arises when conditions are created in the body where a great excess of free radicals are produced, eventually breaking down cellular membranes of healthy cells and damaging their fragile contents. If enough undesirable free radicals are created (through aging, the environment, unhealthy foods, etc.), this starts chain reactions of “electron theft” and uncontrolled creation of free radicals, leading to cellular damage. Scientists refer to this process as oxidation, and the cellular damage it causes is known as oxidative stress. Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals are inadequately neutralized by the body’s antioxidant defense system, or when the “oxidants” overwhelm the “antioxidants.” It’s the same sort of reaction that takes place as metal rusts or as an apple turns brown, only it is happening inside our bodies! Unchecked free radical damage can accelerate the aging of every system in our bodies, damaging our DNA and may even lead to cancer.

To recap, a little of this electron thievery can be okay, and even beneficial and necessary for intracellular signalling, but excessive free radicals can cause a lot of health problems, if not brought under control. This is where activation of the cellular defense (cytoprotective) pathway comes into effect from the polyphenol combination in OProCyn.

What are Free Radicals?2019-05-08T10:36:12+00:00

Free radicals, in the broadest sense (often referred to as radicals) are atoms, molecules, or ions with unpaired electrons. These free radicals always seek to stabilize themselves by stealing electrons from neighboring stable molecules, thus turning them into free radicals. It is important to note that not all free radicals are bad for the body. To the contrary, they are a necessary part of our biological systems.
