Beyond Grape Seed
It is formulated with a unique blend of
Masquelier's Original OPC, bilberries and cranberries.
the name Professor Dr
Jack Masquelier ring a bell
in your mind? Probably not. Just like you, most people don't either.
Dr Masquelier is a medical professor at the Biological and Medical Faculty
of the University of Bordeux, France. He's credited with making one of the
most spectacular health discoveries in medical history.
However, it's a shame that his revolutionary nutritional findings are still
relatively unknown to most people. It's about time that more people should
know about this wonderful health secret.
What you're about to find out
is the amazing discovery that Dr Masquelier's research has produced. Knowing
this insider secret could literally change the course of your health span.
Here's what Dr Masquelier 'unintentionally' discovered.
In 1947, he was given an assignment as part of his doctoral project to
determine whether the red inner skin of peanuts was toxic. In the course of
his research, he stumbled upon a colourless substance in peanut skin which
intrigued him to carry out further studies.
He finally succeeded in isolating the substance known as polyphenols called
oligomeric proanthocyanidins or better known as OPC.
What amazed him was that
through his subsequent research,
he discovered that OPC had tremendous potential in protecting our blood
Incidentally, the pregnant wife of his doctoral tutor, Francis Tayau, was
suffering from a condition called oedema, which was a painful swelling due
to the leakage of fluid from the capillaries into intercellular spaces of
Tayau then suggested that OPC be applied on his wife to find out whether it
could provide her any relief. They were astounded to see the symptoms
disappear within 48 hours.
Encouraged by this positive development, Dr Masquelier did further research
which resulted in the birth of Resivit, a vascular-protective medicine, used
primarily for the protection and strengthening of blood vessels in 1950.
Unfortunately, the scenario of the peanut commodity market changed
drastically not long after that.
Out of the blue, peanuts that arrived in France were in 'shelled' form, for
instance, without the skins. Immediately, the supply of peanut skins dropped
drastically, bringing about an acute shortage of an established source of
This unexpected turn of events then prompted Dr Masquelier to explore and
search for other sources of OPC.
His tireless search finally ended in Landes pine tree bark, which was
another good source of OPC.
He then decided to use it as a substitute for peanut skins.
In the mean time, Dr Masquelier continued his research in this specialised
His relentless studies eventually helped him to make a breakthrough
discovery when he found a more potent source of OPC in the most unlikely
place - wineries or to be exact, the waste products of wineries - grape
It was perhaps the "French Paradox" that provided the leads for him in
making this accidental discovery.
The French consumes a high-fat and high-cholesterol diet yet face a low rate
of cardiovascular disease. Many medical researchers related this strange
phenomenon to the fact that the French were heavy red wine drinkers. And it
was proven that red Wine was in fact, very rich in polyphenols, including
OPC which came primarily from grapes.
However, Dr Masquelier
found out later in his subsequent research that the richest source of OPC
was in grape seeds.
After establishing grape seeds as a rich source of OPC, Dr Masquelier
continued his efforts on improving and perfecting the extraction process.
Eventually, he came up with a proprietary standardised extraction process
that met high pharmaceutical standards. This remarkable achievement earned
him a patent from the US authority in 1985 for making his OPC an
extraordinary potent antioxidant and a superior free radical scavenger as
As you probably know, medical science has identified free radicals as the
main culprit of ageing and degenerative diseases like cancer and heart
Free radicals are in turn, the byproducts of polluted air and water,
chemicals and toxins. Once they find their way to your body, they'll begin
the highly destructive oxidation process, causing great damage to your
cells, tissues, DNA, genes and others.
But the good news is that antioxidants have been medically and
scientifically proven to be effective in fighting free radicals and
repairing damage caused by them. And that's the exact reason why many
medical doctors and nutritionists highly recommend that you have a regular
intake of vitamin C and vitamin E to get the required antioxidants.
However, not all antioxidants are created equal with the same properties and
have the same potency.
For example, vitamin C is exceptionally good in strengthening your immune
system while vitamin IF works well in protecting your heart.
In this respect, Masqueplier's OPC has been clinically tested to be 20 times
more potent than vitamin
C and 50 times more potent than vitamin E as a dependable protection against
the destruction of cells and other tissues.
No wonder thousands of people who have consumed Masquelier's OPC have
uncovered the following top two health secrets.
1. To prevent the oxidation of 'bad' LDL cholesterol levels and
2. To prevent platelets from clumping together to form blood clots
