We put our bodies through so much yet we do not always replenish ourselves by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. With busy lives, stress, not enough sleep, pollution... it’s not always possible to give our bodies the care they deserve. On top of that, there are the added aggravations of pesticides and antibiotics in agriculture and meat processing that affect our diets, even when we try to look after ourselves. All these factors ensure that free radicals occur in our bodies, which, in turn, affect the aging process of our bodies. Sound familiair?

To keep the body functioning on a day-to-day basis, we consume oxygen, which is required for all bodily processes, including the conversion of proteins, cell division, and energy production. Free radicals are released during these processes. Free radicals are tiny particles that can cause unnecessary damage in our body. Physical aging, like damage to skin and connective tissues, is often the direct result of these free radicals.

Fortunately, the human body has a very effective way to remove and defuse free radicals: it uses antioxidants to eliminate free radicals arising from these natural processes and those caused by external factors, such as poor diet and pollution. Although the body can produce SOME of the antioxidants it needs, the body does not always succeed in producing enough antioxidants to deal with ALL of its free radicals. The good news is that there are ways we can help our bodies out a bit, even when we are too stressed and tired. MASQUELIER's® ANTHOGENOL® can provide an antioxidant rich daily supplementation. Containing large amounts of OPCs, MASQUELIERs's® ANTHOGENOL® active ingredients support the production of collagen and protect it.

When it comes to which of your body parts is most important, size doesn’t always count. Did you know that veins and arteries are amongst the most important things in your body? They play a vital role in supplying our organs the nutrients from food AND for the disposal of waste in our body. They ensure that all nutrients are transported right throughout the body. Even the tiniest veins, called capillaries, play an important role. So it is vitally important that these tiny capillaries are kept in good condition, to lend the body a helping hand.

So how do they work?
Capillaries act as an exchange point. They are located at the ends of the larger blood vessels and lead to all organs and tissues of our body. They are so thin, even thinner than hair, that red blood cells can only flow through them in succession. Once they arrive at an organ or tissue, capillaries deliver nutrients and efficiently pick up on waste for disposal.

To keep this system of supply and discharge running smoothly, it is important that blood capillaries are kept in good condition. We can lend our body a hand by eating right and living well and by giving our bodies the right nutrients.

To help support this vital nutrient network, it is essential that your body gets the right nutrients. The active ingredient in MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract & Original OPCs offers you a simple way to help support your capillaries and veins. It affects even the finest capillaries to provide optimal support so that our body gets these essential nutrients and waste is removed correctly.

What is 1200 km long and everyone has them?

Read full article  What is 1200 km long and everyone has them?
Can you imagine something so long contained within your own small body? It doesn’t seem possible and yet our blood vessel network is even longer than you might imagine! Throughout the unique structure of our body lies more than 1000 kilometers of veins, 8 meters of large arteries and 1200 km of small capillaries. That's quite a network to maintain, so it is not surprising that things can go wrong from time to time.

A number of factors play a role in the condition of our veins. Heredity, for example, plays a major role, as do jobs that require one to sit or stand for long periods of time.

There are some precautions you can take to keep veins in good condition. Regular movement is very important for proper blood flow. Wearing stockings when sitting or standing for long periods of time may also help. Of course, a healthy and varied diet is important. There is also the option of taking antioxidant supplementation to help strengthen and maintain blood vessel walls.

Years of research support the positive health benefits of MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract & Original OPCs to keep arteries and blood vessel walls strong and supple and to improve circulation.
