Ingredients

Pycnogenol®
Pycnogenol is a plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. This unspoiled, natural environment is the unique source of this pine bark. Pycnogenol is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace. Published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol's wide array of beneficial effects on the body, specifically in the realm of antioxidant health. Pine bark extract is a combination of proanthocyanidins, bioflavonoids, and organic acids.

Pycnogenol is beneficial to children because it acts as a free-radical scavenger and provides antioxidant defense.

Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Grape seed extract contains polyphenols, compounds with antioxidant activity. Children would benefit from grape seed extract because it provides antioxidant defense and may help support healthy blood vessel function and blood flow.

Bilberry Extract

Bilberry extract is derived from a berry-like fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry. Extracts of the ripe berry contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins, which act as antioxidants. Studies support that bilberry extract supports blood flow and blood vessel function. Children may benefit from bilberry extract because of its ability to support healthy blood flow and therefore overall health.

Citrus Bioflavonoids Extract

Bioflavonoids are antioxidants found in certain plants that act as light filters, which protect the plant's DNA and other important macromolecules by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. They have been found to promote healthy blood flow and blood vessel function.

Red Wine Extract

Red wine extract is derived from grapes. High in antioxidant properties, red wine extract acts as a free radical scavenger. It also support healthy blood vessel function and blood flow.

FAQ

What are OPCs?
