Clinical OPC® Extra Strength 400 mg
Delivers 400 mg of VX1, a unique French grape seed extract. It's standardized for only small-sized OPCs to ensure maximum absorption, because large OPCs (tannins) in grape seed extract cannot be absorbed. The VX1 extract provides the clinically recognized level of OPCs for consistent benefits and is combined with phospholipids for even greater absorbability. It is grape seed extract as it was meant to be.*

Clinical OPC EXTRA STRENGTH contains only low molecular weight, tannin-free OPC's for high absorbability.
Many other grape seed extracts include high levels of tannins—OPCs with a high molecular weight, which have limited absorption and few health benefits.

Tannins are a form of proanthocyanidin (another OPC) found in grape seeds, stems, and skin. As a result, they are found in many grape seed extracts. However, they have a high molecular weight (large size), and can't be absorbed. Clinical OPC Extra Strength provides only low-molecular weight OPCs, including a complex mixture of flavanolic monomers (catechin, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate) and flavanolic oligomers (dimers, trimers and tetramers).
