Emotional and physical stress, poor diets, pollution, even exposure to too much sun can all contribute to free radicals running rampant in our systems and accelerating the aging process. An excessive amount of free radicals damages our cells and can lead to weaken vascular system, poor circulation, weakened veins and skin elasticity and deteriorated eye health.  

All of which can lead to premature and accelerated aging.


The powerful antioxidants found in MASQUELIER's® French Pine Bark Extract with Original OPCs (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) tablets help neutralize excess free radicals and toxins throughout the body. Known as one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, the 

MASQUELIER’s® OPC Originals provide a unique, safe and natural source of protection against free radical damages.

Tests have shown MASQUELIER’s® OPCs Originals to be significantly more powerful than vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than vitamin C as an antioxidant.

Strengthen capillaries, improve circulation and delay aging of blood vessels.

Every organ, muscle and tissue in our body is fed and powered by nutrients from our blood. Our veins, arteries and capillaries (blood vessels) ensure that these vital nutrients are delivered to where they are needed.

As we age so do our blood vessels, which can often get blocked, stiffen and become less flexible. By looking after our blood vessels and keeping them flexible, strong and clear, we are in fact taking care of our whole body and preserving our youth, improve our vitality and quality of life

Optimal vein health helps reduce the occurrence of unsightly veins on the skin surface for a more even and youthful looking skin.

Clinical Study: MASQUELIER's® OPCs & Leg Veins

The MASQUELIER's® OPCs Originals help ensure that our nutrient delivery system (our blood vessels) stay open, strong and supple so that oxygen and nutrients keep flowing to the organs that need them to stay healthy. At the same time they help ensure harmful toxins and waste continue to flow harmlessly out of our bloodstream so that they don’t cause excessive build-up.


Supple blood vessels and healthy capillaries are essential to life. They supply all the muscles, organs and tissues in our body with fresh blood, delivering nutrients and carrying away waste. Thus a smooth blood flow is integral to good health. But the system is both sophisticated and fragile. And the older we become, the quality of our capillaries declines noticeably. It is therefore essential that the capillary walls function effectively, retaining their selective permeability without losing their ‘vascular strength’.

Jack Masquelier discovered the OPC extracted from French Pine Bark and grape seed can help fight the decline of blood vessels and capillaries due to aging and free radicals accumulation in our body. In doing so he provided a means by which you can maintain vitality as you age. His discovery and patented French Pine Bark extracts and his Original OPC stimulate blood flow and help protect against the damaging effects of free radicals. 

The beneficial effects can be felt throughout your entire body, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, including your eyes and skin.
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 tablets per day with water or fruit juice, or at least 1 tablet for every 100lb (45kg) of body weight.

OPCs are powerful vegetable materials/substances that cannot be manufactured synthetically. The molecules are found mainly in the woody parts of plants. Professor Masquelier was the first person to identify and isolate OPCs from Pine Bark and Grape Seed, and then create a natural blend known as the Original OPC that is 50 times more powerful than vitamin E and 20 times more powerful than vitamin C . 

Clinical tests confirmed that his OPCs are an active agent for the strengthening of the cardiovascular system. 

The applications and beneficial health effects of Masquelier’s discovery are unlimited, and his Vitis vinifera extracts are integral to nutrition, wellness and overall health.
MASQUELIER’s® Original OPCs are the real thing. Powerful supplements that pass every test, made to the precise specifications of Jack Masquelier. Only MASQUELIER’s® gives you the original.


Renowned French phyto-scientist, Professor Jack Masquelier, was the first to isolate OPCs in 1948. He spent his entire scientific career developing, perfecting and researching his unique OPCs products that are famous for their potent vascular benefits. Professor Masquelier developed two breakthrough ingredients; MASQUELIER’s® Original OPCs and MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract.

He was awarded eight patents for both ingredients in this product. In addition, Masquelier's OPC was one of the most clinically studied and tested for health and medical benefits.

The history of French Maritime Pine Bark Extract

French Maritime Pine Bark Extract was invented by Professor Jack Masquelier. Walking through the vast pine forests of Les Landes in the South-west of France, Masquelier was struck by the idea that the thick bark of the Pinus Maritima, the Sea Pine, acted as an envelope that protected the saps going up and down through the stems, from roots to needles and vice versa. In this sandy and swampy corner of France, at the border of the Atlantic ocean, sun, winds and salt offer a hostile environment for men, animals and plants.

French Pine Bark supplements with OPCs

Throughout the years, the Pine Bark extract created by Professor Masquelier has always been made from the bark of the French Maritime Pine, the Pinus maritima. Since its invention, this extract has been on the French market under the name of Flavan®, which makes its active principle a “classic” in the field of herbal remedies and Pine Bark extracts marketed as food supplements. Known as MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract outside of France, his precise Pine Bark extract has been on the market since the late 1980s, together with Professor Masquelier’s equally powerful OPCs invention based on Vitis Vinifera seeds, called MASQUELIER’s® Original OPCs. His products are available around the world, uniquely under the name of its inventor, Professor Jack Masquelier.

It was difficult to spot the difference because you look at your face every morning. You stumble upon an old picture from college or even just five years ago. “My skin used to be so smooth and firm!” “Where did that saggy, extra skin come from underneath my chin?”

Skin issues can be emotionally difficult to deal with. We feel self-conscious when there is a giant, red pimple on our nose or when there are more dark spots and less firmness in our skin. It is the first thing people see and generally, we cannot hide it.

As a teenager, I struggled with acne and later in my twenties, I remember waking up one morning with dry, scaly patches on the bridge of my nose and on my neck. Seemingly overnight, I found myself dealing with moderately severe eczema.

People would ask, “What’s wrong with your neck? Did you get a really bad sunburn.” As much as I tried to convince myself that I was not self-conscious about my skin, these innocent comments from friends and family started to wear down on me.

I would hesitate to wear t-shirts because they exposed my neck, and I did not want to deal with the “innocent” comments or have to explain that I was not contagious. I tried different eczema creams and lotions but this was more than just dry skin.

As much as I disliked going to the doctor, my mom, who is a pharmacist, convinced me to make an appointment with my family physician. My doctor examined my skin and came back after 5 minutes with two tubes of medication—two different forms of topical steroid creams. He said, “Just apply these until the patches go away.”

“How long will I have to use these?”

“Probably off and on for the rest of your life.”

That just did not make any sense to me. This was one of those turning points in my life that started me down the path of looking for answers about what these symptoms mean and how to get to the root cause of the issue rather than just covering up the issue with medications.

Little did I realize, or did my family physician, that my form of eczema (also commonly called atopic dermatitis) was not primarily a skin disease, but rather a sign that my body’s internal environment was out of balance.

My mom was always the one encouraging myself and her customers at the pharmacy to use as few medications as possible. She promoted healthy lifestyle and nutrition because she understood that medications were not the answer to all health problems. You might see why I was inspired to look to a different approach to medicine. My holistic medical education at Bastyr University, an accredited naturopathic medical school, taught me to look at symptoms in the context of whole-body health.

Even if you do not have a skin condition, taking care of your internal environment will keep your skin healthy, radiant, and smooth. 

Let me explain.

We all live for the summer months! Nothing is better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage. This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us, resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.

Aging is kind of a bummer, am I right? 

Even though our mothers gave us the heads-up that things are going to change, we then wake up one morning (approx. age 35 for me) and realize that 1) Things HAVE changed, along with 2) Mom was right…AGAIN . And unfortunately, our skin is usually where we see the effects of aging in our bodies first. From dryness, to volume loss and fine lines, to perhaps even the oh-so-unfair adult onset acne, time has a way of wreaking havoc on our once pristine skin. 

But the great news is, we can reduce these effects by nourishing our skin from the inside, out. And as a registered dietitian, I’m here to provide a few proven nutrition tips and real-life tricks, to nourish your skin to help keep it glowing and healthy for years to come.

Protecting your skin from the sun is important, no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially vital in the summertime. While you might want to bare your skin in the summer to achieve a beautiful, sun-kissed complexion, UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause premature aging if you aren’t careful.

UVA rays, which account for 90 to 95 percent of the UV radiation that reaches the earth, penetrate deep layers of the skin and cause tanning. UVB radiation accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of solar radiation, but it damages the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin, causing sunburn.

  UVA rays cause the collagen in your skin to break down at a higher rate than normal aging . They do this by penetrating the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, and lead to the abnormal buildup of elastin. This elastin accumulates and results in the production of enzymes that break down collagen.

The more sun exposure you get, the worse the damage becomes. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that increase the number of enzymes that break down collagen. An excessive amount of free radicals in your body can also weaken your vascular system, cause poor circulation, and lead to deteriorated eye health.
