Suggested Use: 1-2 capsules daily, in divided doses, with meals.
OPC-Sorb offers a broad range of polyphenol compounds from grape seed, pine bark, wild blueberry and green tea. Polyphenols in this formula include EGCG and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), low molecular weight flavonoid polymers. Studies indicate that these polyphenols support antioxidant defenses for cellular and arterial health. Leucoselect® Phytosome® is a grape seed complex with a high concentration of procyanidin oligomers combined with soy lecithin to enhance absorption. Grape seed extract enhances vascular integrity and elasticity to support healthy blood flow as well as cognitive, cardiovascular, skin and eye health. In one clinical pilot trial, Leucoselect® Phytosome® provided support for immune health by promoting the T helper (Th) 1 response. Recent research also suggests that polyphenolic compounds may enhance synaptic density and plasticity in the brain to promote learning and memory performance.
What Is It?
OPC-Sorb offers a broad range of polyphenol compounds to promote antioxidant
defenses and vascular health to support healthy blood flow, cognitive,
cardiovascular, skin and eye health.*
Uses For OPC-Sorb
OPC-Sorb provides a blend of polyphenol compounds,
including EGCG and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), low molecular weight
flavonoid polymers, to promote antioxidant defenses and vascular health. Studies
suggest these compounds enhance vascular strength and elasticity, in part by
supporting collagen stabilization and the maintenance of elastin, two key proteins
found in connective tissue and blood vessels. Additionally, polyphenols support
healthy fluid balance by promoting lymphatic circulation.*
OPC-Sorb provides powerful antioxidant support for cellular
and cardiovascular health. Studies indicate that polyphenols, particularly OPCs
and EGCG, support antioxidant defenses and maintain healthy cytokine balance
to promote cellular, arterial and lipoprotein health. Leucoselect
is a grape seed formulation with a high concentration of procyanidin oligimers
combined with soy lecithin to enhance absorption. Clinical pilot trials indicate
offers antioxidant support for cardiovascular and
immune health. In one clinical pilot trial, Leucoselect
support for immune health by promoting T helper 1 (Th1) response.*
Research suggests that polyphenols may support healthy
theta brain wave activity to support relaxation and mental alertness. Additionally,
a recent study indicates that they may enhance synaptic density and plasticity in
the brain to promote learning and memory.*
What Is The Source?
grape seed phytosome contains grape seed (
standardized to contain 25% polyphenols, and phospholipids derived from
soy. Wild blueberry extract is derived from
standardized to contain 4% polyphenols. Maritime pine bark extract is derived
and contains typically 80% proanthocyanidins. Green tea
extract is derived from
leaf and standardized to contain a
minimum of 90% total tea catechins and 70% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
Pure Encapsulations recommends 1-2 capsules daily, in divided doses, with meals.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. In
research studies, grape seed extract has been associated with headache,
abdominal pain, sore throat, nausea and cough, but these effects occur at
rates similar to placebo. In rare cases, green tea can cause dizziness, insomnia,
agitation or fatigue. Consult your physician for more information.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
This product has a blood thinning effect and therefore may be contra-indicated
with blood thinning medications. Green tea extract may interfere with the
absorption and effectiveness of a number of other medications, including certain
heart, anti-diarrhea, cold and hay fever medications. Consult your physician for
