OPC Protocol

OPC is an Eye Health Food

OPC is an Liver Health Supplement

OPC is a Nitric Oxide Supplement

     

"The finding that OPCs provide protection to collagen and contribute to the making of it explained why OPCs exert a positive influence on all structures in the body where collagen plays a supportive role. This brings into perspective not only the vascular wall but also bones, muscles, tendons, connective tissue, joints, skin, and mucous membranes. In fact, it brings into perspective every tissue of the body because collagen acts as a “ground substance” in all tissues."   Masquelier and the universal OPCs

"Even more options in the application of OPCs in the human body became apparent as research continued. Masquelier was better able to explain the broad and intense effect that OPCs have on the body when he discovered that OPCs neutralize the common cause of many seemingly unrelated conditions: free radicals. OPCs are tremendously strong antioxidants. This discovery is extremely significant in a time when an increase in life expectancy is accompanied by a dramatic increase in cardiovascular and other degenerative diseases."    Masquelier and the universal OPCs

"When your gums bleed as you brush your teeth, when brief exposure to a cold draft causes the tiny veinlets in the whites of your eyes to burst and your eyes to redden, when your legs hurt because of varicose veins, when hardly noticeable pressure such as pinching or nipping results in a hematoma (blue spot), when at the end of a long flight your shoes are too tight, when you’ve been standing all day and your ankles are swollen … you are facing a vascular problem. You could also have a vascular problem if a weakened blood vessel that is only slightly strained “bursts” and blood plasma (fluid) containing larger solid particles extravasates into the surrounding tissue. In people with weakened vessels, there is a continuous impaired permeability. Uncontrollably, the blood leaks from the vascular system and accumulates in the tissues, resulting in swellings, or edema. Such impaired permeability occurs only in the tiny and very delicate capillaries, where the arterial system containing oxygen-rich blood coming from the lungs and heart turns into the venal system, in which the carbon-dioxide-rich blood flows back to the lungs and heart. At the point of the capillaries, the blood releases oxygen into and picks up carbon dioxide (CO2) from the tissues. A well functioning vascular system is of ultimate importance to your health."   Masquelier and the universal OPCs

“OPC from grape seed is recommended as the preferred form by health care practitioners in France where it outsells Pycnogenol by 400%. The fact that Pycnogenol out sells grape seed extract in the US is due to aggressive marketing.”    Doctor Michael Murray, Note the leading work on OPC was done in France. This shows the many of the demonstrated benefits of Pycnogenol are probably available with the more economical grape seed extract . I use GSE as my main antioxidant and systemic prophylactic. For serious problems I would use BOTH just in case.

"OPC'S are antioxidant compounds known as Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins that consist of bioflavonoids and polyphenols. Bioflavonoids are plant chemicals that give fruits and vegetables their natural bright colors. Polyphenols are groups of super antioxidants found in red wine, blueberries, purple grapes, green tea and other vegetative sources. Proanthocyanidins are a class of bioflavonoids found in a variety of plants such as grapes, pine bark, lemon tree bark, hazelnut tree leaves, blueberries, cherries and cranberries. Oligomeric , translated from Greek, means "a part". OPC'S are more commonly known as Pycnogenol, a registered trademark which describes the groups of components that make up OPC'S mentioned above. Pycnogenol is made from the bark of maritime pine trees indigenous to Quebec, Canada and southern France. Pycnogenol is powerful and unique because it includes more than forty different compounds in a single supplement."   The Truth About OPC’s

OPCs are a class of powerful antioxidants shown to have a very positive effect on your health; especially your CVD and tissue building. IMO incorporate Grape Seed Extract into your daily supplement regimen. If you have serious problems Pycnogenol may address please investigate this powerful antioxidant.

All of the OPCs and their sources should be well known and utilized by everyone taking good care of their bodies IMO. I supplement with many dozens of herbs and medicinals on an episodic basis and a FEW minerals, vitamins et al on a DAILY basis. Grape Seed Extract is a supplement I almost religiously take six or more days a week.

      

Doctor Jack Masquelier PhD, OPC Expert   On the importance of OPCs  

"Blood circulates via a complex system of arteries, veins and capillaries. And good blood circulation is a precondition of good health. Central to this process is the exchange between blood and tissue, with oxygen and nutrition passing from the blood into tissue, while CO2 and waste materials pass from tissue into the blood to be carried away and excreted. This exchange takes place via the walls of the countless tiny capillaries that extend to every corner of your body. It is therefore essential that the capillary walls function effectively, retaining their selective permeability without losing their ‘vascular strength’."   Aging & blood vessels

"Your capillaries are the smallest element of the blood circulation system – but maintaining them delivers the biggest benefits. ... Jack Masquelier discovered two plant extracts that help fight ageing – and therefore the decline – of blood vessels and capillaries. In doing so he provided a means by which you can maintain vitality as you age. His extracts stimulate blood flow and help against the damaging effects of free radicals. The beneficial effects can be felt throughout your entire body, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, including your eyes and skin."   Aging & blood vessels

"OPCs are powerful vegetable materials/substances that cannot be manufactured synthetically. The molecules are found mainly in the woody parts of plants. Professor Masquelier was the first person to identify and isolate OPCs, and then create a natural blend suitable for human use. Clinical tests confirmed that his OPCs are an active agent for the strengthening of the cardiovascular system. The applications and beneficial health effects of Masquelier’s discovery are unlimited, and his Vitis vinifera extracts are integral to nutrition, wellness and overall health."   Original extracts

"DOSAGE: Professor Masquelier determined the range for daily intake for MASQUELIER’s® Original OPCs at 1.5 to 3 mg per kg (2 pounds) of body weight, depending on a person’s condition and need (as Professor Masquelier describes in (expired) US patent 4,698,360). In practice and looking at the dosage used in all the scientific research, this translates to a commonly used dosage of 100 mg, as a maintenance dosage, to 200 mg per day depending on need. For final guidance on dosage, please refer to the dosage and instructions on the actual product you are using."   MASQUELIER’s® Original OPCs   Note here is a company founded by the OPC Expert

"Masquelier’s OPCs were found to be a high-performance phyto-nutrient, that provides relief in practically all vascular disorders. In OPCs, Dr. Jack Masquelier’s Mark on Health, you can read why it is, that OPCs also provide health benefits for connective tissue, for eyes, for joints, for skin and mucous membranes. OPCs are not only your collagen’s friend. They also neutralize free radicals, which are the common cause of many seemingly unrelated conditions. OPCs are strong, versatile and safe antioxidants. "   His Mark on Health

Doctor Jack Masquelier a french scientist did the original work on the OPCs. He explains rather clearly why they OPCs so important to your health.

     

Health Issues OPCs Address

Edema Issues

“OPC reduces edema and swelling which may be important in fighting HBP, congestive heart failure and sports injuries involving swelling.” Jean Carper, Note OPC is found in Grape Seed Extract as well as the more expensive Pycnogenol

Eye Issues

“Grape seed OPC has also proved good medicine for your eyes. It helps eyes recover from the glare of bright lights. OPC helps relieve eye stress caused by working at a computer monitor and improved the function and sensitivity of the retina in nearsighted people. OPC’s strong antioxidant activity may also make it ideal treatment for age-related macular degeneration.” Jean Carper

“I credit the slowdown in my macular degeneration to first Pycnogenol and then to grape seed extract.  Until my recent retirement I recommended OPC grape seed extract and Pycnogenol to all my patients. I do not know a single patient who did not benefit.” Doctor Madison Dixon, Optometrist

HBP Issues

“OPC reduces edema and swelling which may be important in fighting HBP, congestive heart failure and sports injuries involving swelling.” Jean Carper, Note OPC is found in Grape Seed Extract as well as the more expensive Pycnogenol

“OPC may help reverse HBP and its consequences. People with HBP commonly have weakened capillaries with high permeability. In animals prone to HBP OPC has strengthened capillaries.” Jean Carper

“Grape seed extract is known for its powerful antioxidant qualities. Grape seed extract also acts as a smooth muscle relaxant in blood vessels to combat hypertension.”  Life Extension

Vein Issues

“In a study of 92 patients with venous insufficiency or varicose veins subjects given 300 mg of grape seed OPC daily for 28 days showed reduced pain, tingling, night leg cramps and swelling by more than 50%, making it twice as effective as the dummy pill.” French Study 1985

In a double blinded study of fifty patients with varicose veins 150 mg of grape seed OPC a day worked faster and longer than a commonly prescribed drug (Diosmine) in reducing pain, sensations of burning and tingling and the degree of distension of the veins.” Italian Study

Varicose Veins

“In nine studies OPC has been shown to be efficacious for varicose veins by strengthening the veins and restoring their resilience so they retract back into the skin. OPC has been shown to reduce fluid build up and swelling due to leaking veins.” Doctor Masquelier et al, Note GSE is a type of OPC

In a double blinded study of fifty patients with varicose veins 150 mg of grape seed OPC a day worked faster and longer than a commonly prescribed drug (Diosmine) in reducing pain, sensations of burning and tingling and the degree of distension of the veins.” Italian Study

“In a study of 92 patients with venous insufficiency or varicose veins subjects given 300 mg of grape seed OPC daily for 28 days showed reduced pain, tingling, night leg cramps and swelling by more than 50%, making it twice as effective as the dummy pill.” French Study 1985  

Here we see the broad health benefits OPCs can provide. In addition to these few examples, ANY health issue involving collagen, CVD issues and oxidation can be helped by OPCs; these encompass many health issues. You can see the powerful effects of Grape Seed Extract and the many OPC sources.

“Citrus peel extract reduced serum triglycerides and cholesterol levels in hamsters; the results suggest that a daily supplement of citrus peel extract could improve insulin sensitivity in people.” Li et al    Note CPE contains a flavonoid OPC which has been shown to retard collagen oxidation. Citrus Peel Extract has a strengthening effect on collagen (See Collagen Protocol) with a preference for veins. You can use lemon, orange or grapefruit peel extract. I often eat most of the peel of an orange and often the entire well washed peel or lemons and limes.

Note all of these OPC sources are very salubrious in their own right in addition to being OPC sources.
