1. the correct dosage of OPC
The recommended daily dose of OPC is between 150 - 500 mg. The daily amount depends on whether OPC is used only as a preventive measure or also in case of illness. In general, the daily requirement of OPC depends on various factors. These include age, sex, body weight, height and above all the general metabolic situation.
2 What is OPC?
OPC is the abbreviation for oligomeric proanthocyanidins. This stands for secondary plant substances. It is a herbal active substance which has antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties and has many positive effects on the human organism. This substance belongs to the group of polyphenols, but is assigned to flavanols due to its chemical structure. Altogether these are called secondary plant substances. Pure OPC occurs as a natural defence in plants, because it protects and strengthens the plants against the environment. The content of OPC is particularly high in grape seeds, apples and nuts.
3 Which tasks does OPC perform?
OPC is considered one of the strongest antioxidants. It protects the body against the attacks of free radicals and helps with all kinds of stress. It plays a decisive role in maintaining normal skin. The moisture barrier of the skin cells is improved by the alpha hydroxy acid contained in OPC. Thus an OPC-containing skin cream ensures faster wound healing and the reduction of scars. Therefore, OPC is also very well known in the cosmetic industry as it is supposed to provide the well-known anti-aging effect. OPC also ensures strong, shiny and healthier hair. Furthermore, the polyphenols contained in OPC neutralize oxygen radicals that cause inflammation in the body. In addition, they help to improve vitamin C activity and protect against bacteria, viruses and diseases. OPC protects cell structures and genetic make-up and neutralizes various types of free radicals. Furthermore, OPC acts as a vascular protection by preventing excessive permeability of the vessel walls. Further tasks are the reduction of tissue damage, the strengthening of blood vessels and the improvement of blood circulation. As OPC is a blood-thinning agent, it also improves blood circulation.
4 OPC as a food supplement
OPC is available in the form of dietary supplements for purchase in stores. It is offered in the form of OPC capsules and OPC tablets. Both forms are easy to handle and quickly enter the circulation. However, OPC tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases have been produced with artificial additives or abroad. OPC capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers. OPC capsules or OPC tablets should be taken with sufficient liquid (for example water or juice). It does not matter whether iodine is taken before or after a meal. However, if you have a sensitive stomach and cannot take OPC tablets or OPC capsules on an empty stomach, you should eat something first and then take the food supplements.
In general, you should always make sure that the product was produced in Germany in order to guarantee a consistently high product quality. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product was also produced safely and is of high quality.
