Characteristics

Vitaflavan Pur’expert is a fine powder extracted from the seeds of white grapes grown in southwestern France offering the following characteristics:

  • Total polyphenols > 96 % (GPC)
  • OPC > 75 % (GPC)

Composition (%) (GPC)

  • Monomers: < 25
  • Dimers + trimers: > 30

Intestinal absorption and thus, the biological activity of oligomers, depends on their molecular weight: the higher the molecular weight the less the procyanidins are absorbed.

Vitaflavan Pur’expert’s optimal composition of low molecular weight procyanidins guarantees the bioavailability and efficacy of the extract.
