Isotonix OPC-3 (90 servings)

Have you always wanted to remain young and in the pink of health? Isotonix-OPC 3 could just be the solution for you!

Description

Isotonix OPC-3 is an isotonic-capable food supplement that is made from a combination of bilberry, grape seed, red wine, pine bark extracts and citrus extract bioflavonoids.It contains the three best sources of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) available: grape seed extract, pine bark extract and red wine extract. OPCs are powerful bioflavonoids conferring many nutritional benefits to the body. The pycnogenol in pine bark extract is also a potent bioflavonoid that leads to a highly efficient process of absorption of nutrients, with many clinical research studies supporting the claim. In short, Isotonix OPC-3 is a superior source of antioxidant protection against free-radical damage, with the OPCs in it providing numerous other benefits which will be highlighted later, including support to the circulatory system.


Benefits

Superior Antioxidant Capabilities

Antioxidant

OPCs, being the most potent antioxidants known to date, slow down premature ageing and prevents chronic diseases such as arthritis. They also provide unparalleled protection against free-radical damage caused by exposure to the environment and internal physiological processes. Their antioxidant capabilities have been demonstrated in a study on 61 participants with metabolic syndrome, who showed a reduction in oxidative stress and an improvement in cardiovascular risk factors after supplementation of OPC-3.These findings were published in the journal ‘Angiology’.

Better Absorption

While there are other OPC supplements out there in the market, the isotonic delivery of Isotonix OPC-3 (in particular, pycnogenol) provides a greater advantage as it greatly enhances the absorption of nutrients. According to a study published in the June 2009 issue of the journal "Phytotherapy Research'', researchers found that the isotonic OPC-3 solution was six times more potent at neutralising free radicals in the participant's plasma within 10 minutes of consumption and was four times more bioavailable after 40 minutes than the tablet form. This high absorption rate proves to be crucial here because OPCs are particularly difficult to digest when acquired from foods or taken in non-isotonic formulas.

Promotes heart and joint health

The bioflavonoids found in OPCs in Isotonix OPC-3 also help to support the circulatory system, such as by strengthening the capillaries. They support the functioning of your blood vessels, keep your cholesterol levels in check and in sum, improve your cardiovascular health. In particular, the flavonoids in Pycnogenol also appear to support the normal generation of nitric oxide (NO), which stimulates the normal relaxation of arteries, and helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and circulation. Nitric oxide also fosters healthy platelet activity, thereby allowing the blood to maintain a normal, fluid viscosity. Not only that, the same bioflavonoids also enhance normal collagen renewal, helping your joints to remain firm and maintaining joint health.

GMO and preservatives-free

Isotonix OPC-3 has been certified to be free of genetically modified organisms(GMO)in product tests.
OPC-3 is also free of harmful chemicals, preservatives and alcohol.

Possible antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

A review published in the "Alternative Medicine Review" journal in April 2000 demonstrated that OPCs, apart from their antioxidant properties, possibly also display antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and cancer-fighting potential.

Gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians

Those with strict dietary requirements will be glad to know that Isotonix OPC-3 is also certified to be gluten-free and suitable for use by vegetarians.

Ingredients

Grape Seed Extract

Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes, which have a high content of compounds known as OPCs. Grape seed extract is also extremely rich in polyphenols, a compound high in antioxidants.

Red Wine Extract

Red wine extract is rich in OPCs. This extract is found in grape vines, roots, seeds and stalk, with its highest concentration in the skins.
   
Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol)

Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. As one of the most potent natural scavenger of free radicals, pycnogenol combats many aggressive free radicals before they cause oxidative stress to vital organs. It has superb antioxidant capabilities.

Bilberry Extract

Bilberry extract is derived from the leaves and berry-like fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry. Extracts of the ripe berry are known to contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants.

Citrus Extract (Bioflavonoids)

Bioflavonoids are found in certain plants to act as light filters protecting the delicate DNA chains and other important macromolecules by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. They have been found to promote cardiovascular health and maintain healthy blood circulation.
