EuroPharma's BCM95 + OPC Wins Anti-Aging Award


Super potent antioxidants and detoxification combine for powerful cellular benefits

GREEN BAY, WI, February 4, 2015—Taste For Life magazine announced in its February issue that it has honored BCM95®+OPC, from EuroPharma’s® Terry Naturally® brand, with its annual “Supplement Essentials” award for Anti-Aging. Aging, though a natural process, is a progressive loss of function related to cumulative cellular changes. Aside from genetics, there are three major factors in aging rates: levels of oxidative stress, detoxification capabilities, and a balanced, healthy inflammatory response. BCM95+OPC combines 3 unique herbal extracts—high absorption curcumin, tannin-free grape seed extract, and turmerones from turmeric essential oil—shown to benefit these three crucial factors that impact cellular health.

In a poll by Research!America*, declining health was the number one concern amongst individuals as they age. However, 84% of those polled believe they can take active steps to stay healthy as they age, and 83% report they are already taking those steps.

One important contributor to the aging process is oxidative stress. BCM-95 Curcumin is a potent antioxidant. This unique curcumin has 21 published studies, which includes 11 human clinical trials, on many areas of health, including an absorption study that shows it is absorbed up to 10 times that of standard curcumin. In one test of antioxidant properties called Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity (ORAC values), BCM-95 Curcumin was, on a gram to gram basis, found to have almost 230 times the ORAC of raw blueberries and 72 times that of dark chocolate, for super potent antioxidant capabilities. BCM-95 Curcumin has also been shown to support proper functioning of several important inflammation pathways in the body, as well as promoting liver health and ongoing detoxification.

The unique French grape seed extract is standardized to contain only low molecular weight oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) that are 100% absorbable. Many grape seed extracts contain large-sized OPCs, also called tannins, that are not able to be absorbed, yet still count towards the OPC content on the label. It, too, is an excellent antioxidant, protecting cells from oxidative damage.

The last ingredient is turmeric essential oil standardized for a minimum of 48% turmerones. Turmerones are from turmeric, but are not found in curcumin. However, they have been shown to increase curcumin absorption and also work synergistically for enhanced benefits. On their own, they have been shown in studies to support cellular health, especially cellular replication, and also play a role with curcumin in helping to support a healthy inflammation response.

“We are honored to receive this award from Taste For Life magazine,” stated Terry Lemerond, president and founder of EuroPharma, Inc., “BCM95+OPC is one of my favorite products because it combines some of the most powerful botanical compounds on the planet in forms that will more consistently afford benefits.
