BioOPC+ Contains Four Natural Extracts High in Resveratrol

For years, scientists pondered over the "French Paradox." Why is it that men in France eat more saturated fats, and smoke more cigarettes, and yet have a significantly lower incidence of heart attacks? The researchers concluded their longevity might be related to the greater red wine consumption in France.. Further investigation revealed the possibility that a polyphenol in red wine called resveratrol might be responsible for the effect.

Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes and many other fruits, vegetables, and berries including blueberries, bilberries, cranberries, mulberries, and peanuts. As an antioxidant, experts believe it may be responsible for reducing the formation of "bad" cholesterol, the formation of atherosclerosis, as well as the inflammation in the walls of blood vessels that is found in atherosclerotic conditions. It has been found to have protective effects against obesity and diabetes in animal. It has some anti-cancer effects.

Recently reachers discovered the first scientific evidence suggesting that resveratrol is responsible for the extraordinary cardiac health found in France. These findings came out of a study of mice, in which it was seen that reservatrol creates an alteration in gene expression similar to that found in people who eat a calorie restricted diets. It has been known for some time that calorie restricted diets extend lifespan, and now scientists believe that this amazing natural compound can bequeath the same benefits of a low calorie diet to people who have normal calorie intake.

People who can't or don't drink wine can get their resveratrol from other sources. Red wine extract, for example, provides the healthy benefits of red wine without the accompanying alcohol intake. We at eHelps, a manufacturer of natural health products, are proud as can be of our BioOPC+ supplement, which has four natural extracts that are high in resveratrol. These four are red wine extract, cranberries, mulberries, and blueberries. We combine these four health bequeathing ingredients with 10 other natural antioxidant rich berries and vegetables to give users a wide cross-section of natural antioxidants. This is so important because each antioxidant plays a different role in neutralizing harmful free radicals in the body, and a broad selection of antioxidants is most likely to include the compounds that can counter the oxidant build-up found at any particular time.

While the resveratrol found in various natural sources is the same, nature provides many different types of antioxidants, each of which plays a different role in fighting excess oxidation. A balanced mixed of natural antioxidants, therefore, provides the body with a solid defense against oxidant buildup in the body.
