Anthocyanidins and OPCs are part of the flavonoid group of plant compounds found in fruit, seeds and berries.
These compounds are already well established as supplements to the diet in mainland Europe where in countries such as Germany, France and Italy, GPs regularly prescribe them for those with non-medical fluid retention(3). Now thousands of women in the UK, who suffer with non-medical causes of fluid retention have a new approach to tackling fluid retention.
Clinical research using Colladeen® Original has shown that the product can be of help to women who retain too much fluid due to ‘leaky’ blood capillaries. The researchers identified that the anthocyanidins are very active within the body, acting as super strength antioxidants, as well as helping to repair and protect the collagen that forms capillary walls. Colladeen® Original has a loyal following of customers, many of whom have been using it for several years.
