OPC SUPREME- Andorra Life Corporation
Why we need antioxidants?
Antioxidants are natural compounds found in some foods that help neutralize free radicals in our bodies.
Free radicals are substances that occur naturally in our bodies that attack the fats, protein and the DNA
in our cells, ultimately causing different types of diseases by accelerating the aging process. Therefore,
antioxidants play an important role in our overall health.
Why choose Andorra Life?
Andorra’s OPC Supreme contains 4 types natural’s most powerful antioxidants extract.
Grapeseed extract is an excellent source of specific polyphenol antioxidants called OPCs, which have
been clinically proven to fight free radicals and provide many healthy-aging benefits. Grapeseed extract
supports production and stability of collagen and elastin, the two proteins which are very important to
connective tissue health. Grapeseed extract also supports cardiovascular health and a healthy immune
All parts of red grapes contain some proanthocyanidins, including the juice, skins and seeds, and the
highest source of small molecule and highly bioactive oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are found in
red grape seeds. Misleading marketers market their white grape products and lower quality red grape
products as red grape seed extracts. For the purpose of dietary supplements, only red grape seed
extracts have the overwhelming science behind them.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for humans and certain other animal species. Vitamin C is a cofactor in
at least eight enzymatic reactions, including several collagen synthesis reactions. Ascorbate (a form of
Vitamin C) may also act as an antioxidant against oxidative stress, it is required for a range of
essential metabolic reactions in all animals and plants. It is made internally by almost all organisms but
not humans. Humans absorb Vitamin C from the diet. A major deficiency of vitamin c can cause the
most severe symptoms of scurvy.
Andorra Life’s Nature C is the new form of Vitamin C, clinically proven superior to standard vitamin c
supplements. It contains vitamin C-lipid metabolites for enhanced delivery, absorption and utilization
throughout your body. Nature C also improves blood plasma and tissue retention of vitamin C.
