    I've been very curious over the past few weeks as to just WHY it is
    OPC-3 seems to help with pretty darned near EVERY disease imagineable
    mankind... so over the weekend, I started to do a bit of research and
    is what I have come up with so far.

    Let me know if you have any questions :)

    First, here is a link to a site completely unrelated to Market America
    all kinds of good info about OPC:

    And a library here: that is
    maintained by one of our MA doctors that I've found very helpful when
    chatting with folks about different conditions.

    To summarize what I have learned: The root of most basic problems seems
    be that Systemic Allergies cause Mast Cells to be made. Mast Cells then
    trigger pain & inflammation and produce more histamines as well.

    The intestines & bladder have a similar Epithelium (lining) made up of
    mucosal surface (glycosaminoglycans, or GAG). GAGs and glycoproteins
    allow tissue cells to hold together. GAGs and GPs are also necessary
    for the
    construction and maintenance of nearly all of the body�s connective
    and lubricating fluids.

    So, a defective GAG layer leading to intestinal permeability could be
    start of a disease process that encompasses many seemingly different,
    related, conditions. Several conditions share common bond�defects in
    linings of the involved organs, which would allow various substances,
    ordinarily not found beyond these organs� surfaces, to "cross over,"
    creating an environment favorable for certain disease processes. This
    explain the development of several of these related diseases, from IC,
    ulcerative colitis, and Crohn�s, to allergies, asthma, sensitive skin
    fibromyalgia. Once substances are allowed to cross over, this sets up a
    chain reaction which could explain the involvement of mast cells,
    neurohormones, nerve fibers and pain regulators.

    So... The results of the study in a nutshell are: These diseases are

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    Sensitive Skin
    Chronic Fatigue & Immune Deficiency Syndrome
    Urge Incontinence
    Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Most of these are treated successfully with tricyclic antidepressants
    antihistamines, the theory being that they share a common connection
    increased pain perception in the central nervous system.

    Now... how OPC-3 comes in... OPC-3 is an anti-inflammatory and blocks
    histamine production!

    Histamine is produced in two ways: 1) Under the influence of
    in mast cells; 2) by decarboxylation of an amino acid called histidine.
    hinders the HD enzyme and thereby inhibits the production of histamine.

    We already know that Clarkia (aka Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin) is a natural
    compound present in most fruits and vegetables, and particularly in
    bark, skin, and seeds. Most notably Proanthocyanidins are found in pine
    bark, grape seed, and grape skin. However, bilberry, cranberry, black
    currant, green tea, black tea, and other plants also contain these
    flavonoids. We also know that it is not usually found in our daily
    diets in
    quantities approaching therapeutic value, and the amount present in raw
    is often destroyed during cooking. However, supplementation with OPC
    extracted from pine bark and from grape seeds has been shown to protect
    against cardiovascular and other degenerative diseases and to have
    other benefits, including: lowering LDL cholesterol levels, reducing
    platelet aggregation, increasing the strength and elasticity of blood
    vessels, helping collagen repair itself, reducing edema and
    relieving functional problems associated with varicose veins, lessening
    tendency toward diabetic retinopathy, and improving skin health and
    overall immune system function.

    It has been known for centuries that Clarkia counteracts allergic
    Masquelier explains the anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic activity of
    on the basis of their antioxidant activity. Free radicals activate the
    release of histamine and other mediators and they are also produced by
    mediators. This is how free radicals form essential components in the
    development and perpetuation of inflammations and allergic reactions."
    in Practice, by Bert Schwitters in Collaboration with Prof. Jack

    Masquelier's discovery of OPC's has a well documented proven record of
    years of scientific research and human studies, conducted through
    universities, scientific institutes, hospitals and clinics by medical
    practitioners, dieticians and specialists of various professions.

    So, how does OPC help the immune system?

    The good news is that OPC is great at neutralizing peroxynitrate. It
    reduces the amount of superoxide available that makes peroxynitrate and
    helps to regulate the nitric oxide production so that it stays in
    That means your immune system works better, your joints hurt less, and
    blood flows better, from OPC.

    Keep in mind that when you are dealing with chronic, severe conditions
    Crohn's or Fibromyalgia, that the best way to start is by doing a colon
    cleanse for one week. That will clean out the toxins that are currently
    the system. Then have the customer start to drink 4-6 ounces of Aloe
    Juice 3
    times a day, and take Digestive Enzyme w/Probiotics after each meal.
    Implementing a low glycemic index diet would also be best as carbs like
    white flour products seem to aggravate these conditions.

    The Aloe and Digestive Enzymes will help the healing to start. After a
    weeks on that regimen, they can start adding OPC and B12 to their
    Dosage is based on body weight.

    For example, I just recommended the following to a 225 lb woman with
    severe crohn's disease: 3 doses of OPC, 3 times a day before each meal
    one dose of B12 WITH each meal.

    They might want to keep taking the Aloe Juice and Digestive Enzymes to
    with digestion.

    After a few months of feeling better, then you can cut them back on the
    dosage and help them determine the proper maintenance dosage.

    Hope this helps everyone to understand OPC a little better :)
