Antioxidants, OPC and your skin

Grape seed extract contains the phytochemicals OPC  (Oligomeric proanthocyanidins). OPC is one of the strongest natural antioxidants  and fights free radicals in the body. In addition to protecting skin cells, OPC is also said to help with allergies, chronic inflammation and PMS.

Free radicals are the main cause of cell damage and wrinkles, because they attack the skin cells, the fiber proteins collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin loses stability and elasticity. The skin can no longer store moisture, dries out and becomes wrinkled.

Natural antioxidants can protect skin cells, fiber proteins and blood vessels from deterioration and aging. They virtually “repair” the collagen. Skin enzyme activity is strengthened by antioxidants and can protect the skin from harmful UV radiation.

Another positive effect of antioxidants, especially OPC, is the acceleration of wound healing. Among other things, bacteria are made harmless and the connective tissue is repaired. No wonder that the extract should also be a good helper for people with neurodermatitis and other skin diseases.

The Natural Youth Cure was developed with experts to provide the skin with valuable nutrients and to protect it from negative environmental influences.
