The vital supplementary micronutrient with secondary plant substances extracted from grape seeds.
Biologically active plant substances can be described as “phytobiologicals“. They are produced solely within plants, where they – as secondary plant substances – serve to protect and preserve the plant. The supply of secondary plant substances to our bodies can be ensured by consuming a balanced diet containing plants and their fruits and seeds.
Depending on their structure, the collective term "secondary plant substances" comprises a variety of groups and sub-groups from which many different functions derive. The so- called polyphenol group contains numerous examples.
Grape seeds are rich in polyphenols. They include the well-known oligomeric proantho- cyanidins (OPC) and other secondary plant substances. For an additional intake of grape seed polyphenols, dietary supplements are a common source of supply.
Dr. Rath OPC™
OPC™ contains a grape seed extract with a total content of at least 60% polyphe- nols. For protection of the ingredients and their natural synergies, polyphenol-rich grape seeds are processed very gently. The extraction (dissolving) method is exclusively based on the use of water in the low temperature range.
