Chapter 5

A Glass of RED

OPC & Red Wine

The French paradox is the fact that the French, as a race, consume copious amounts of fats in their every-day diet yet suffer only a low incidence of cardiovascular disease.

This is attributed, at least in part, to the fact that they also consume regular moderate amounts of red wine which contains Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC, which are a group of colorless flavonols). The term Proanthocyanidins is derived as follows pro = before, anthocyanins = red, referring to their colorless property and their ability to be transformed into (red) Anthocyanins.

OPC inhibits some aspects of the Aging Process (by enhancing the body's renewal of collagen and inhibiting excessive cross-linking).

OPC inhibits excessive cross-linking, yet allows optimal cross-linking that is necessary for the structural integrity of Scleroproteins. Importantly, OPC removes Lipofuscin from and inhibits its formation in the brain and heart.

In the Cardiovascular System, OPC helps to prevent and reverse atherosclerosis by its action in inhibiting the Histidine Decarboxylase enzyme, which catalyzes the excessive conversion of Histidine to Histamine that is usually observed in persons afflicted with atherosclerosis.

OPC improves the strength and elasticity of the walls of blood vessels and reduces their permeability (by enhancing the synthesis and metabolism of collagen and elastin within the blood vessels).
