OPC's are vitamin C's natural co-factor in protecting life against free radicals. OPC's and ascorbic acid are essential anti-scurvy nutrients, building and protecting collagen.

Moderate consumption of red wine is healthy because of high OPC's content. As supreme free radicals scavenger, OPC's inhibit premature aging of all tissues.

During the 1960s a French product made from the bark of the Maritime Pine (Pinus Maritima) was profoundly researched and brought to perfection. By 1970 this Pine Bark Complex, discovered and first researched by Prof. Dr. Jack Masquelier, had be come crowned with 5 patents in France, the U.K. and the USA and its applications especially in the field of vascular medicine had been well established. In 1987 Dr. Masquelier was granted yet another U.S. Patent, describing the antioxidant properties of Oligomeric ProanthoCyanidins (OPC's), the key ingredient in MASQUELIER's® FRENCH PINE BARK COMPLEX.

The extraction methods describing the manufacturing of MASQUELIER's® FRENCH PINE BARK COMPLEX have been improved since Dr. Masquelier's first method, describing the production of a product from the skins of peanuts, was patented in 1948. (French Patent No.968.589). The first patent describing the bark of the PINUS MARITIMA as a useful source of Oligomeric ProanthoCyanidins (then still called: leucocyanidin) was granted to Masquelier in 1953 on the 29th of April. (French Patent 1.036.922)

MASQUELIER's® FRENCH PINE BARK COMPLEX is the specific complex of phyton-utrients manufactured from the bark of the French Maritime Pine tree since 1950. Though also rich in OPC's, MASQUELIER's® FRENCH PINE BARK COMPLEX contains (traces of) substances, such as taxifolic acid and caffeic acid, which cannot be characterized as OPC's.
