The difference between organic OPC aronia and OPC grape seed extracts
OPC grape seed extracts are mostly chemically extracted in combination with alcohols. Our organic OPC aronia is purely natural without any additives. The origin of the grape seeds is often in Europe or even more often China.
By stating that they were produced in Germany, it is often concealed where the actual origin of the raw material is. Often the extraction takes place in Asia without this being obvious to the consumer.
With our organic OPC aronia you can be sure that from the cultivation of the berries to the harvest and processing, everything is done from one source and is certified organic. This means that every process can be monitored closely and we can offer you a product of the highest quality.
The advantages at a glance:

What is OPC?
OPCs are secondary plant compounds and these are called strong antioxidants.
What are the benefits of antioxidants?
Antioxidants offer protection against so-called "free radicals". These free radicals are formed by the body itself during various metabolic processes, and are also produced by harmful external influences such as cigarette smoke, environmental toxins or UV radiation from the sun.
If there are too many free radicals in our body, so-called "oxidative stress" occurs. This most likely causes diseases such as arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, cancer and makes the skin age faster. Oxidation can be observed, for example, in cut apples - they turn brown. Anyone who sprinkles lemon juice on apple slices can see that the antioxidant vitamin C and OPC prevent this oxidation: they retain their natural color. Aronia berries naturally contain a lot of vitamin C and OPC. The combination of vitamin C and OPC is of great advantage.

Description & Application:
OPC vitamin bomb: The health boost
Drivelessness and constant tiredness are adult diseases of our time and can be prevented by natural means.
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins, OPC for short, have proven to be effective antioxidants in addition to their anti-inflammatory properties. They belong to the secondary plant compounds and are found in small amounts in strawberries, blueberries and apples.
OPCs have a strengthening effect on vitamins A, E and C, which also act as antioxidants. Thus you support your immune system in detox and your body's own defences. A regular intake can therefore positively influence your resistance to viruses and bacteria.
In addition, the OPC has a promising effect on blood health. The vital substance expands the blood vessels and ensures a better blood circulation. Your brain is better supplied with nutrients and you feel more active. Especially in the case of a stressful lifestyle due to job and family, you can master your tasks more successfully through improved performance.
Resveratrol is also an ingredient in OPC that strengthens your nerves. The nerve cells are protected and therefore age more slowly.
Aronia berry: The strongest source of OPC
No plant contains as much of this health source as aronia. Although it originally comes from Canada, aronia has already been cultivated in Germany for several years.
At Biohof Stövesandt we are responsible for both, the cultivation and the production of the Bio OPC powder. The aronia plant is cultivated by us in our home region, the so called Lüneburger Heide, and is harvested between August and September every year.
After we have cold pressed the berries, the powder is then dried. We only use low temperatures so that the valuable ingredients of the super berry are preserved. This process also allows us to completely dispense with any additives.
With hand and love back to naturalness
To guarantee the purest OPC, we pick the berries by hand. In this way we prevent leaves and other components from getting into our product.
We do not use any other extraction methods to isolate the OPC. When you buy our organic OPC aronia you do not get an industrially processed isolate, but a complete natural product. This means you have to take more of the aronia powder, but you can be sure that you are eating a pure product of nature.
In addition to the fortified OPC, the product also contains natural vitamins and fibre to support your healthy lifestyle.
Our farm is certified organic and belongs to the Naturland association. The stricter requirements compared to the standardised EU organic seal and our love of nature guarantee the highest quality and purity.
Easy to use
To cover your daily requirement of natural OPC, we recommend that you take 4 capsules of Bio OPC aronia (380mg OPC) per day, which corresponds to about a heaped teaspoon of our Bio OPC aronia powder.
