Live Better, Longer
Many diseases were once thought to be an inevitable part of the aging process. However, the cause of these diseases is not about growing older, but about the free-radical damage that breaks down our bodies' cells, leading to serious ailments such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. To combat these free radicals, our bodies need a hefty supply of antioxidants.
In Live Better, Longer, Richard A. Passwater, Ph.D., introduces you to the versatile health benefits of a family of antioxidant bioflavonoid-oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Many years of research have shown that these amazing nutrients prevent and treat many diseases. In this book readers will learn how OPCs:
Strengthen blood vessel walls and protect the linings of blood vessels.
Reduce the effects of stress.
Help normalize blood pressure.
Help restore and maintain joint flexibility.
Ease hay fever and allergies.
Help keep skin smooth and youthfully flexible.
Help protect against the complications of diabetes.
Improve learning ability and memory retention.
And that's not all. Many other health problems can be eased by supplementing with OPCs. All of the important information Dr. Passwater has gathered over several decades is included in this enlightening book so that reader's can put these discoveries to use now to live better, longer.
