Q: Why is being tannin-free so important?
A: Tannins are a form of proanthocyanidin (another OPC) found in grape seeds, stems, and skin. As a result, they are found in many grape seed extracts. However, they have a high molecular weight, which makes them very difficult for the body to absorb, and in any case, they don’t provide strong health benefits. Clinical OPC™ provides only low-molecular weight OPCs, including a complex mixture of flavanolic monomers (catechin, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate) and flavanolic oligomers (dimers, trimers and tetramers).
Q: What does ORAC value mean, and why is it important?
A: ORAC, or oxygen radical absorption capacity, is the measurement of the free-radical fighting strength of an antioxidant. The higher the ORAC value, the more ability it has to reduce oxidative damage to the cells.
Did You Know?
A French professor, Jacques Masquellier, was fascinated by the story of how explorer Jacques Cartier’s crew made a tea of pine bark that kept them healthy. Pine bark, like grape seeds, contains OPCs. Masquellier, working in the wine-rich region of Bourdeaux, pioneered extracting OPCs from grape seeds, which fast became a clinically-studied ingredient.

Clinical OPC™ – Superior Absorption for Full Benefit
Years of research have found that the benefits of grape seed extract are due to Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, known as OPCs. But these powerful health promoting nutrients need to be absorbed in order to support good health. Clinical OPC™ provides maximum-absorption Superior French Grape Seed Extract for maximum benefits.*
