Description - Live Better, Longer by Richard A. Passwater

Whether you know it or not, your body is constantly being attacked by very harmful substances known as free radicals. You cannot see them, smell them or touch them, but they are always there, trying to destroy body proteins and cell membranes. Free radicals are dangerous and scientists believe that continuous exposure to them is the major cause of aging and of many degenerative diseases. Opts (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) are among today's most potent and promising free radical fighters. They are actually a family of antioxidants - found in grape seeds, red wine and the bark of French maritime pine tress - that are more powerful than vitamins C & E, long-held as gold-standard antioxidants.Opts' unique strength comes from the ability to recycle vitamin C, spare vitamin E from oxidation and extinguish a broader range of free radicals than most other antioxidants. Opts have been shown in scientific studies to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, memory loss and even erectile dysfunction. Although these diseases may seem unrelated, they all share the same undercurrent of inadequate antioxidant levels. This book explains how free radicals cause disease and provides an in-depth review of the myriad therapeutic benefits of this super-strength antioxidant in combating modern-day killer diseases and in protecting the body's billions of cells from head to toe.
