MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients provide a vast array of health benefits due to the support they provide at a physiological level.
They help protect and support healthy collagen and elastin and their regeneration. And they have many remarkable effects on the vascular and immune systems. By providing support for these essential building blocks and systems, MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients provide proven health benefits throughout the whole body.
COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN SUPPORT, PROTECTION
MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients have multiple mechanistic actions which help underpin the protection and regeneration of both healthy collagen and elastin. They are the essential building blocks of the vascular system, all body tissue and our skin. Collagen is made of chains of amino acids that wind together to form triple helixes, which then join to form fibres. These are held together by Glycoproteins. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients have proven relationships and mechanistic actions with Glycoproteins that help bind, strengthen and protect collagen and aid in its regeneration.
VASCULAR SUPPORT AND PROTECTION
MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients provide lifelong support for the vascular system that inevitably weakens and loses flexibility over time. They support cardiovascular function, capillary strength and flexibility and microvascular circulation. This vital system supplies nutrients to every cell and organ in the body and its continued health has many health benefits throughout the body. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients support circulation in many ways, including in the lymphatic system (part of the immune system) by promoting lymphatic flow.
SKIN HEALTH, ELASTICITY, PIGMENTATION AND REGENERATION
MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients go further than providing support to collagen and elastin health, which play a large role in keeping skin smooth and supple. They are also powerful antioxidants capable of reducing excess free radicals after daily oxidative stress and UV exposure. Skin regularly experiences oxidative stress from pollution, the sun’s UV rays, or not getting the nutrients it needs. This can lead to premature skin ageing, reduced skin elasticity, pigmentation and wrinkles. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients promote skin health and its regenerating process after daily oxidative stress and UV exposure.
Human clinical trials show that MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients can play a significant role in eye health.
MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients are scientifically proven to support eye health in numerous ways. They support fluidity and blood flow in the eye, specifically in the retina at the back of the eye and capillary function in the mucous membrane covering the eye. They also support the health of the eyes vast microvascular network. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients support eyes healthy functioning and aid performance with glare and varying light intensity.
MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients are scientifically proven to support the recovery phase after exercise. They provide valuable support for the microvascular system as it performs its post-exercise recovery functions. Microvascular health is key to the recovery phase because it removes waste materials and scavenges free radicals generated by the oxidative stress caused by exercise. By supporting the homeostasis of the microvascular system MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients help counteract the damage done to vascular walls by free radicals during exercise which prepares the body for further training.
HEAVY LEGS AND SPIDER VEINS
Human clinical trials show that MASQUELIER's® Original OPCs can play a key role in sustaining leg related vascular health. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients support the microvascular system in maintaining venous tone, flexibility and integrity of veins. They also promote capillary strength and permeability and promote lymphatic flow. Standing or sitting for long periods places pressure on your veins which can lead to heavy legs and spider veins. MASQUELIER's® OPCs ingredients uphold healthy venous tone which supports leg vein health when under pressure.
