With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to talk about how to support your heart health.
No, we’re not talking about romance and heartache (there’s not much we can do about that!), but when it comes to physical heart health, OPCs have a long history of helping!
OPCs are naturally occurring antioxidants that protect against free radicals and offer a wide range of health benefits.
In honor of American Heart Month, here are five ways OPCs support a healthy heart:
1. Boosting Nitric Oxide
Nitric oxide is your body’s secret key to healthy blood vessels. It lets them relax and keeps them strong and flexible. In fact, one of the reasons why heart disease risk goes up as we get older is that our nitric oxide levels drop and our blood vessels develop inflammation and buildup.
But studies show that grape seed extract offers a significant boost in nitric oxide, helping your blood vessels work the way they should!
2. Fight Free Radicals that Damage Blood Vessels
Boosting nitric oxide levels to keep blood vessels strong isn’t the only way OPCs can help blood flow and heart health. OPCs’ antioxidant properties could also battle a hidden cause of blood vessel damage—oxidative stress caused by free radicals!
Green tea extract and bilberry extract could scavenge those free radicals, letting your body repair and reverse the damage oxidative stress wreaks on your body.
3. Support Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
We all know that erratic blood sugar levels go hand-in-hand with diabetes, but did you know that it also impacts your heart health?
People who have diabetes are at higher risk for heart disease. Why? High blood sugar levels can impair your blood vessels over time, which restricts blood flow and puts you at risk of a heart attack.
Researchers have discovered evidence that grape seed extract could help lower blood sugar levels in people who suffer from diabetes.
4. Lower LDL Cholesterol
Have you ever heard doctors talk about “good” and “bad” cholesterol? LDL cholesterol is the “bad” kind—it builds up plaque in your arteries so your blood can flow properly to your heart.
If that sounds bad, it is— 75% of people who suffer from a heart attack have high LDL.
Grape seed extract, red wine extract, and green tea extract have all been linked to lower LDL cholesterol levels.
5. Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure causes long-term heart damage in several ways— damaging arteries, overworking your heart (which can lead to heart attack or failure), and weakening your heart muscle.
OPCs could lower blood pressure. In an Italian study, 93% of hypertensive subjects reached normal blood pressure within four months of taking grape seed extract daily. Red wine extract has also been shown to significantly lower blood pressure.
Protect Your Heart With OPCs
The science is clear—OPCs like red wine extract, bilberry extract, green tea extract, and grape seed extract can target your heart health in several ways, potentially aiding in protecting you from heart disease and heart failure.
With OPCXtra, you can experience the benefits of all four of those powerhouse antioxidants, along with pine bark extract and citrus bioflavonoids.
