Beyond Grape Seed

Beyond Grape Seed


It is formulated with a unique blend of Masquelier's Original OPC, bilberries and cranberries.


DOES 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 vessels.

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 the body.

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 OPC.
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 field.

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 seeds.

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 well.

As you probably know, medical science has identified free radicals as the main culprit of ageing and degenerative diseases like cancer and heart attack.

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
