Pure Encapsulations OPC-Sorb
Antioxidant to Support Cardiovascular, Skin and Eye Health
What Is 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
- Vascular Health: 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.
- Cellular Health: 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® Phytosome® is a grape seed formulation with a high concentration of procyanidin oligimers combined with soy lecithin to enhance absorption. Clinical pilot trials indicate that Leucoselect® Phytosome® offers antioxidant support for cardiovascular and immune health. In one clinical pilot trial, Leucoselect® and Phytosome® provided support for immune health by promoting T helper 1 response.
- Cognitive Function: 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.
