We’ve all heard about antioxidants, but most of us wouldn’t know why these are good for us. Antioxidants are your cellular warriors!

They defend your bodies by neutralising the free radicals that attack your cells, causing damage and accelerated aging. Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes increases the attack of free radicals resulting in oxidative stress.

But also did you know, you need to increase your antioxidant intake whilst you are dieting? When you detox or deliberately lose weight, you will increase the metabolic waste and thus create more free radicals that attack our cells.

Let’s have a look at a simple way to provide your body with a daily amount of super antioxidants from this awesome product called Proanthenols.

Why are free radicals dangerous?

Free Radicals

Have you heard of oxidative stress? Well oxidative stress is caused by unstable oxygen molecules that are constantly looking to steal free electrons from other molecules, creating a chain of highly unstable free radicals. If this continues to happen, it begins a process of oxidative stress.

When these free radicals react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane, the cells may be damaged or die, ultimately leading to a range of diseases and accelerated aging. Examples of potential diseases are cancer, heart disease, dementia, auto-immune diseases, degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, cataracts and diabetes.

Your body automatically makes free radicals, when you breathe, as you burn energy and produce metabolic waste. However, you are also exposed to free radicals from environmental pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol and fried foods.

What are the benefits of antioxidants?

To prevent free radical damage, our bodies defense is to manufacture antioxidants, but you also require the majority from your food. You can increase your antioxidant intake when you eat a diverse range of fruit and vegetables.

However, there a certain plants that can provide superior antioxidant protection and also help other Vitamins like C and E, work more efficiently. These are known as Flavonoids.

Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) are a flavonoid that can be found in many plants, most notably pine bark, grape seed, and grape skin.

Proanthenols contain the potent naturally occurring Real OPC’s from grape seeds and pine bark.

Research has shown that Real OPC’s make vitamin C more effective and can even substitute for its functions. The Real OPC’s contained in Proanthenols provide 50 times the antioxidant protection of vitamin E and 20 times that of Vitamin C.

Proanthenols also contain blend of other bioflavonoids including Lemon bioflavonoids, Hesperidin, Rutin, Quercetin and even Vitamin C to further enhance its benefits.

Oxidative Stress in Obesity

A 2016 article published by El-Kader, S.M. & Saiem Al-Dahr, M.H. in a Saudi Arabian study, discovered that dieting and exercise can indeed reduce inflammatory and oxidative stress markers in overweight and Type 2 Diabetic individuals.

There is so much evidence to support that if you are overweight, then oxidative stress increases your chances of getting other diseases like metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol levels or blood pressure, diabetes and cancer.

Proanthenols also have also been shown to improve individuals vascular health.

This is why it is so important to ensure that you are ensuring that your daily intake of super antioxidants is high.

Supplementation can be beneficial to reverse oxidative stress, especially during a dieting phase like Phase 2 in the 21-day Metabolic diet.

So who is the manufacturer of Proanthenols?

You don’t have to trust my opinion, you too can meet them at their headquarters, if you head to Batesville, Arkansas, USA or at any of the other company events for customers.

Lifeplus have teamed up with Berkem Laboratories in Southern France who are the most knowledgeable and experienced company in the world that produces high quality OPC extracts.
