FUNCTIONS Proanthocyanidins are among the most powerful natural free-radical scavengers yet discovered. As such, proanthocyanidins have their own unique place in the body's overall protection against harmful free radical damage. Proanthocyanidins appear to be especially effective in neutralizing highly reactive hydroxyl and singlet oxygen radicals. Both of these reactive oxygen species are involved in the body's normal inflammatory processes.
Proanthocyanidins also support and enhance the activity of vitamin C, and are known for their ability to help support the health of the body's capillary system and connective tissues. Proanthocyanidins have been shown to bind with collagen fibers, thereby protecting them from premature degradation. This helps maintain the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other connective tissues.
