What are polyphenols?

Polyphenols, a family of water-soluble molecules found in many different plants, are a treasure trove of secrets.

Our quest of knowledge starts with procyanidolic oligomers (OPCs), which are catechin and epicatechin polymers. Nature hid these tiny jewels inside protective vegetal chests, such maritime pine bark and grape seed cuticles. We carefully extract these precious OPCs to get a concentration of 67% to 75%, better than any other on the market. The competition has good reason to look at the quality of our extracts with jealous eyes.

Polyphenols have many benefits in addition to their well-known antioxidant properties. Oligopin® and Vitaflavan® promote cardiovascular health. They have venotonic properties and inhibit the oxidation of LDL, the “bad cholesterol” which contributes to blocked arteries. VitaS® helps lose weight by making the body burn more energy and stimulating lipolysis. Finally, Cosmythic® protects and embellishes skin by preventing cellular aging, promoting collagen and elastin synthesis, enhancing circulation and more.

Worth writing down in your log: the effectiveness of our extracts has been borne out in many clinical trials. Our explorers continue to tread the paths of discovery.

Our next step takes us into the realm of the infinitely small: welcome to the world of phytosterols.
