EuroPharma Enters the OPC Category with Superior French Grape Seed


Tannin-free, for better absorption, new Clinical OPC is a unique, French grape seed extract called a breakthrough in natural medicine.

GREEN BAY, WI, January 21, 2015 —EuroPharma, Inc.®, makers of the Terry Naturally® brands of products, announces the launch of Clinical OPC™ with VX1™, a quality grape seed extract with low molecular weight, tannin-free OPCs for high absorbability.

For years, researchers have focused on the amazing benefits of grapes and grape seed extract in protecting and prolonging health. Some of the hardest-working, health-promoting nutrients in grape seed extract are oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs. OPCs are a group of bioflavonoid complexes that work as free-radical scavengers in the body. As a super-antioxidant, Clinical OPC stops free-radicals that could otherwise attack cells and disrupt good health. In a comparison test with seven other grape seed extracts, Clinical OPC had the strongest ORAC value by far with 2,103,300 per 100 grams.

“Grape seed extract is well known in the natural health world for a wide variety of powerful health benefits,” said Terry Lemerond, president and founder of EuroPharma. “But grape seed has a drawback. The health benefits are greatly attributed to the OPC content, but some OPCs are much too large to be absorbed. The large OPCs are called tannins, but still count on the label analysis toward the OPC total. In fact, I’ve seen some raw materials that are entirely tannins—low priced and completely ineffective.”

New Clinical OPC is unique among grape seed extracts because the naturally occurring tannin OPCs have been removed. Lemerond continued, “I think the ability to deliver tannin-free OPCs is an important breakthrough in natural medicine, and I’m excited to be able to offer this high OPC French grape seed extract to the American market. Grape seed extract is a botanical wonder, and adding Clinical OPC to your supplement regimen is one of the best things you can do for your health.”

Clinical OPC is now available nationwide at quality health food retailers and integrative pharmacies.
