OPC: The Miracle Antioxidant
How It Acts to Prevent Disease, Restore Health and Upgrade Quality of Life
Chris Kilham
Keats Publishing 1997

Many of us are living longer but enjoying it less, as degenerative conditions induced by free radicals -- atherosclerosis, cancer, cataracts, diabetes, hepatitis, kidney failure, arthritis, and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, to name a few -- blight the later years. A powerful new antioxidant, OPC, is an astoundingly effective free radical antagonist, and can be the key to a "healthspan" that matches our extending lifespan. Foreword by Professor Jack Masquelier.

We must have oxygen to live ...but oxygen, in the form of free radical particles, can also endanger our health and threaten our lives, “rusting” body tissues. Nutrients called antioxidants are the best defense against free radicals—and a plant-derived substance called OPC is one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered. This Good Health Guide explores both the fascinating story of OPC discovery—with the first clues dating back more than 450 years—and the many ways it promotes health, from guarding against heart attacks, degenerative diseases and the effects of aging to relieving inflammations and the discomforts of PMS.
