More about exGrape ® SEED grape seed extract :
exGrape ® SEED grape seed extract , standardized to 95% polyphenols, is obtained from the seeds of white Vitis vinifera grapes harvested exclusively in Champagne - a French province famous for its long winemaking tradition and the cultivation of top-class grapes. We guarantee the possibility of complete verification of 100% French origin, from raw material to finished extract .
exGrape® SEED grape seed extract , in addition to the full spectrum of polyphenols, also guarantees a high content of at least 30% of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC).
What are oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC)?
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins, better known as OPCs, are compounds belonging to the class of polyphenols found in significant amounts in grapes, and most abundantly in their seeds. They are combinations of catechin and epicatechin units (monomers), which contain from two to a maximum of several monomers - mainly dimers and trimers. Thanks to the polyphenolic structure, i.e. numerous –OH groups present in the molecule. OPCs have unique antioxidant properties, which effectively neutralize free radicals and have a beneficial, health-promoting effect on the body.
exGrape® SEED – SUPER ANTIOXIDANT!
According to the analysis of oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC), which is a method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of biological samples, exGrape® SEED has an ORAC value of 15,000 µmol TE/g and thus outclasses other popular antioxidants such as: pycnogenol, tea extract or vitamin C .
How is exGrape® SEED extract obtained?
exGrape® SEED extract is obtained under mild extraction conditions and without the use of toxic solvents, thus retaining all the properties of its active ingredients. The extract is natural and comes from 100% grapes - it does not contain any carriers, preservatives or other artificial additives.
95% or maybe 30%... So what is the actual OPC content in the extract?
Manufacturers of many dietary supplements based on grape seed extract declare very high OPC content in their products, up to 95%. In reality, however, such high standardization on OPC is not achievable. So where did the mythical 95% come from?
There is some conceptual confusion in the discussion about OPC. OPC, or oligomeric proanthocyanidins, are compounds that constitute a class of a broader group of compounds called polyphenols. This group, apart from oligomeric proanthocyanidins, also includes other compounds, including monomeric catechins and epicatechins. The information about 95% OPC content found on some products is misleading because it actually refers to the sum of all polyphenols, and not only to OPC, which is one of their fractions.
Because we always try to act reliably, this time we present full and true information about its composition on the packaging of our product. The exGrape® SEED extract contained in our product contains a minimum of 30% OPC and a total polyphenol content of 95% .
