Anti-aging studies prove how OPC affects the skin and body
If you want to grow old, you have to live longer. However, we Germans fare much worse than our European neighbours. At the age of 81, you live less in this country on average for more than two years than in Switzerland. Compared to other European countries, we show in a Study on average life expectancy only 18th place. It seems that we still have some catching up to do in terms of our health.
Fitness or a calorie reduction are well-known anti-aging tips. But as early as the early 18th century, the Irish physician Samuel Black discovered that the French population lived much longer despite wine consumption. The chemist Jacques Masquelier identified oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPC, as the elixir of life.
We have looked at the latest Studies closely looked at and explained that how Opc affects your body and keeps you young.
What happens as people get older?
From birth, our bodies are attacked by environmental influences. UV radiation, pesticides and heavy metals are just a few of them. They enter our bodies through food and cosmetics and damage our cells.
The toxins pierce the membranes that protect our cells. They can also alter our genetic material, DNA, by mutations. With age, these damages increase and can be repaired less easily. Our hair turns grey because we run out of melanocytes that give it its color. It gets thin because we lack hair roots.
The structural protein collagen, which is an important component of connective tissue, begins to deform and gives us a wrinkled skin. Vessels slowly calcify and reduce the blood flow of our body tissues. And one thing is certain: the more we expose ourselves to harmful environmental influences, the faster we age.
What can you do about getting older?
In our teens, we couldn't wait to finally come of age. But from a certain point on, the clock is running faster and faster. We cannot stop them. On the other hand, we can actively influence and slow down the process of aging.
The trend of anti-aging, which is very much lived in the USA, is increasingly spilling over into Germany. We are curious to see what innovations and opportunities science will provide us in this field in the future. Still, you don't have to wait long to do something for yourself. You can start now.

The vital substance supports the fiber proteins of the blood vessels and keeps them elasticOur tissue sits better and provides important nutrients.
Another important effect of grape seed extracts is the promotion of wound healing processes. OPC accelerates the production of collagen, which is important for the repair of the skin.

Cell experiments confirmed that grape seed extracts the cell death of Lung cancer cells Induced.
UV rays can damage our skin or even cause skin cancer. Opc According to scientists, even the Formation of Skin cancer Reduce by activating repair mechanisms in damaged cells.
