EuroPharma Inc.®, maker of the Terry Naturally® brand of dietary supplements, announced BCM95®+OPC™ for advanced cellular protection.
BCM95+OPC combines three proven antioxidants in highly absorbable forms: clinically studied, high absorption BCM-95® Curcumin; Vina-100™, a unique French Grape Seed OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) extract; and turmeric oil standardized for turmerones.
“Grape seed extract is one of the most effective antioxidants available, but until now, absorption has been unpredictable,” said Terry Lemerond, president and founder of EuroPharma, “We’re excited to offer one that is completely tannin-free.” OPCs need to be absorbed in order to be effective. OPC molecules (tannins) are too large to be absorbed systemically. “Many grape seed extracts include high levels of tannins, meaning they are poorly absorbed and offer very few health benefits,” Lemerond continued, “The standardized OPCs in BCM95+OPC are 100 percent absorbable due to their small molecular size. This presents superior absorption for superior results.”
Sixteen published studies—10 of them human clinical trials—make BCM-95 a proven addition to the French grape seed extract. The patented BCM-95 combines curcumin and turmeric essential oil in a proprietary process, and BCM95+OPC contains additional turmeric oil standardized for turmerones for more synergistic benefits.
“I combined these three premium herbals to maximize their health impact,” explained Lemerond. “BCM-95 Curcumin is fat-soluble, as are the turmerones, and Vina-100 French Grape Seed Extract is water-soluble. Fat-soluble antioxidants protect the cell membrane while water-soluble antioxidants work in blood and cellular fluids. With BCM-95+OPC, by blending three powerful antioxidants based on their polyphenol contents, they target virtually every system in the body. And, new research is showing that curcumin’s healthy cellular activity is greatly boosted when combined with turmerones. In my opinion, BCM-95+OPC offers the most powerful and effective blend of curcumin, turmerones, and French grape seed extract on the market today.”
BCM-95+OPC is now available nationwide at quality health food retailers and integrative pharmacies.
