Anthogenol is the result of years of research and development
dating back to 1947.

Beauty

Despite what most advertising claims, good skin nutrition comes first and foremost from the inside. Capillaries in the dermis, just under the skin, supply nutrients and oxygen to the skin and remove toxic build up. Our skin is bombarded with free radicals daily through sun exposure, pollution, stress and chemicals in various forms (foods, skincare products, household cleaning products, etc.).

If the oxidative stress caused by free radicals is not mopped up, this process leads to premature ageing and the formation of wrinkles. Fortunately, free radicals can be neutralised with strong antioxidant activity. Weaker antioxidants such as vitamin C can actually become free radicals themselves.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and completely dependent of the condition of the microvascular system (i.e. capillaries) to feel and look its best. Support at the capillary level will ensure moisture balance, nutrient supply and removal of toxins which are essential factors in fighting the premature appearance of wrinkles and age spots.

Anthogenol® supports healthy, glowing skin with its powerful triple action: improves collagen synthesis, helps prevent collagen breakdown and inhibits excessive collagen cross-linking that leads to lines and wrinkles.

It is estimated that some of the beneficial nutrients provided in MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs are almost 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more powerful then vitamin E in scavenging free radicals. However, the OPCs in Anthogenol® and vitamin C work together synergistically to fight free radical damage.

Excessive cross-linking is also a major factor for the loss of elasticity in our body’s tissues that comes with age and for the increased brittleness of rigid tissues characteristic of lined skin.

The inhibition of cross-linking plays an important role in the reduction of the appearance of premature ageing of the skin and in the maintenance of healthy connective tissue.

If you use products to improve the health and appearance of the hair, skin or nails, be sure to also address internal causes. Taking just one Anthogenol® capsule daily may help to benefit these areas much more cost effectively.

Younger skin:

Minimal cross-linking means the skin is soft, supple and pliant.

Older skin:

Increased cross-linking makes skin tissue more rigid so that lines become deeper over time.

“I absolutely love anthogenol my skin has never felt better the texture of my skin feels smoother firmer and balanced. Not just my face my body doesn’t need as much moisturiser A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER.”
A. I. (VIC)
“Having fair skin and freckles, my skin especially on the backs of my hands were showing signs of sun damage. That has diminished almost completely and circulation is fantastic in the hands and feet area”
A. J. (VIC)
“I’ve been taking Anthogenol® for 12 months now and I would not be without it. My hair is thicker and I’m very happy with the look of my skin. The pores are smaller. My skin is cleaner, and my legs have not throbbed in 12 months.
It’s nice to find something that works.”
A. R. (NSW)
“After 10 years in the cosmetics & beauty industry I’ve tried many products, which promise amazing results, but very few deliver!! My main reason for trying Anthogenol® was to help reduce the milia on my top eyelids. I am surprised and very happy with my result so far they have nearly disappeared. Friends have also commented my skin is just glowing and want to know “what cream” I use.”
B. P. (QLD)
“Several years ago I had a severe allergic reaction to a prescription medication; this left me with a sensitive liver, and a system that did not tolerate certain foods, beverages and activities very well. Since taking Anthogenol® my whole system has gradually improved. My digestion and regularity are much better, I enjoy a glass of wine without being in pain and feeling ill afterwards, my skin, hair and nails have a much healthier feel and appearance to them, the spider veins in my legs have stopped multiplying, and I am certain that my frame of mind has improved greatly.”
J. L. (NSW)
“After approximately 2 weeks my face looked so much clearer, that fresh, clear skin look you get right after a facial. I’ve regained my natural (hair) shine and my hair is growing a lot quicker than usual. I’ve never come across a vitamin that I’ve noticed such a dramatic result so soon. I would recommend this product to anyone!”
L. P. (NSW)

What is cross linking?

When collagen proteins become ‘cross-linked’ (often due to the effect of free radical damage), the tissue becomes less flexible and can no longer move as freely or function as effectively. In younger years the body produces enzymes which break down excess cross-linkages. This keeps the skin, muscles, veins and capillaries strong but flexible and supple. However with ageing cross-linking occurs faster than these enzymes can break it down. When collagen and other connective proteins are young they have a gel-like quality to them lending structural support and the appearance of firmness.

Many of the symptoms of aging have to do with the cross-linking and stiffening of tissues. Free radicals and cross-linking damage the collagen and elastin in connective tissue which reduces elasticity and makes the skin sag and the muscles lose their firmness.
The inhibition of cross-linking plays an important role in reducing the appearance of premature ageing of the skin and in the maintenance of healthy blood vessels and connective tissue.

Cardiovascular

The active ingredients in Anthogenol® support the function of endothelial cells (cells that line blood vessel walls) and protect them from oxidative stress. Anthogenol®’s active ingredients help protect LDL cholesterol from oxidative stress while it is being removed from our bloodstream. They also protect collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks of blood vessels flexibility and strength.

Collagen – more than skin deep

Most people think of skin or hair when they hear the word ‘collagen’ however blood vessel walls also contain collagen, which provides structure and flexibility to arteries, veins, capillaries and therefor the whole circulatory system.

Keeping the pathways clear

Anthogenol® helps ensure that the blood vessels stay open, strong and supple so that oxygen and nutrients flow to organs like the heart, eyes and skin. This also helps ensure harmful toxins and waste are removed from the body via the blood. If collagen in the blood vessel walls is not protected, nutrient supply can be impaired to tissue all over the body, and waste like damaged LDLs, cholesterol and fats accumulate where they cannot be effectively removed. Flexible, strong clear veins and capillaries support the health helping maintain quality of life through the ageing process.

The importance of capillaries

Around five percent of blood circulation is concentrated in the capillaries. However it is this portion of the vascular system that performs the most important job – providing nutrients and removal of metabolic waste from the body. All other segments of the cardiovascular system act to serve the adequate blood flow and nutrient exchange through the capillaries MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs in Anthogenol® help protect, strengthen and repair blood vessels and particularly the tiny capillaries responsible for nourishing our entire body at the cellular level. Capillary damage (which can appear as spider veins, redness in the cheeks, bruising), adversely affects nutrition and waste removal in problem areas and makes healing more difficult in affected areas.

Anthogenol® Supports Healthy Circulation

 

  • Helps support the overall condition of blood vessels, keeping them supple and flexible.
  • Helps protect veins from the effects of destructive enzymes.
  • Helps strengthen capillary walls and protect cell membranes.

 

Think of your blood vessels as roads and imagine if a city never had a traffic jam, what the increase in productivity would be! Similarly, healthy blood vessels and circulation mean increased productivity which correlates to increased energy and vitality, sports performance and better recovery time.

French Medicines

Over a period of 65 years Professor Masquelier developed 3 vascular medicines all based on the same active compounds as found in MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs in Anthogenol®. These medicines have been the subject or an array of clinical and scientific research and have been used for decades in France for a variety of disorders related to the circulatory system including capillary fragility, varicose veins, restless legs, heavy and/or painful legs and haemorrhoids.

“Taking Anthogenol and Blooms Health Products CoEnzyme Q10 made me feel like I was able to recover quickly after each race and gave me that extra bit of energy each day.”
Craig, S. (Olympic Swimmer, NSW)
“Anthogenol has really helped with circulation problems that I had. For years I was unable to bend down for any length of time without getting pins and needles. The other area it’s really helping in is reducing my stretch marks.”
K. R. (NSW)
“Since taking Anthogenol I have seen a decrease in my veins around my ankles and my legs don’t ache as much. I feel great since being on it.”
K. W. (NSW)
“With the colder weather I seem to be having less cramps in my feet & feel this would be due to an improvement in my circulation. I intend to keep taking Anthogenol & I am very happy with the product.”
L.W. (VIC)
“I am on my feet all day at work & I have developed small spider veins which some of them look like large bruises. After taking anthogenol you can hardly see them at all now also my skin is a lot smoother & pigmentation I had is slowly fading.”
M. R (NSW)
“I have suffered with shoulder pain for a few years; I have had chiropractors, massages, and acupuncture for this complaint with no relief. I could not sit down without my arm going numb from the pain and pressure. I started taking anthogenol for health reasons and noticed that my shoulder pain stopped and the numbing in my arm stopped. I am truly surprised that I don’t have the pain any longer.”
R. V. (NSW)

Did you know?

Anthogenol® cannot be compared to other antioxidants derived from Grape Seed extract,
due to the highly specialised proprietory extraction method used.

Anti-Ageing

Many of the symptoms of ageing have to do with the increased rigidity of tissues. Free radicals and excessive cross-linking damage the collagen and elastin in connective tissue causing the skin to sag and muscles to lose their firmness.

Free radical theory of ageing

A free radical is a molecule with an unpaired, highly reactive electron that causes a chain of tissue damage in its wake. Oxygen free radicals are formed in the cells naturally during the oxidation of food to form water and carbon dioxide. However others are produced by factors such as exposure to environmental toxins (e.g. pollution, sun exposure, stress, chemicals).

For a visual image of free radical or oxidative damage, imagine the white flesh of a freshly cut apple. Now imagine it 10 hours later, brown and shrivelled. This is the effect that oxidation has on body tissue.

Antioxidants and free radicals

During ageing, damage produced by free radicals cause cells and organs to stop functioning normally. Free radicals can be neutralised or “mopped up” with strong antioxidant activity. Weaker antioxidants such as vitamin C can actually turn into free radicals themselves.

It is estimated that the antioxidant potential of Anthogenol® OPCs is up to 50 times stronger than that of those other well known antioxidants such as vitamin E, and 20 times more potent than vitamin C. Anthogenol® helps stabilize vitamin C enabling them to work together synergistically. Vitamin C is included in the Anthogenol® ingredients for this reason ( click here for ingredients and dosage) working together to support the integrity of collagen.

Cross-linking theory of ageing

When collagen and other connective proteins are young they have a gel-like quality to them lending structural support and the appearance of firmness. When excessive cross-linking occurs tissue becomes stiffer. When tissues stiffen, they do not function as efficiently. Picture a hose left in the direct sun that becomes hard and brittle, and forms cracks.

Tangled collagen creates havoc

Excessive cross-linking is caused by bonding together of collagen protein molecules. When a number of protein molecules are bound together, or “cross-linked” they can no longer move as freely and can get so tangled that they no longer function effectively.

In younger years the body produces enzymes that break down excess cross-linkages. This keeps our skin and muscles and veins and capillaries strong but flexible and supple.

Collagen that has become cross-linked due to free radical damage prevents proper cell nutrition and waste elimination which lowers the vitality of the whole body and speeds up the ageing process.

Cross-linking and ageing

Cross-linking is a major factor in the loss of tissue elasticity that comes with age and also contributes to increased brittleness within tissues which is characteristic of ageing.

The good news is that Anthogenol® helps inhibit excessive cross-linking to reduce the appearance of premature ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and to help provide support during the ageing process to maximise quality of life.

Of course no product is a stand-alone solution, and lifestyle factors must be addressed including a clean diet abundant in fresh fruit and vegetables, regular exercise and maintenance of a healthy positive mental attitude.

Benefits of Anthogenol

Anthogenol® provides 3 levels of support:

  • Improves collagen synthesis
  • Helps prevent collagen breakdown
  • Helps inhibit collagen excessive cross-linking.

The Anthogenol Difference

The potency of Anthogenol® is verified by what is known as Complex Phytonutrient Authentication (CPA), which is one of the world’s most accurate quality control methods guaranteeing consistent composition. The OPCs in Anthogenol® are referred to as MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs to differentiate them from other products claiming to contain OPCs that do not undergo this exacting extraction process and CPA.

No comparison

Anthogenol® cannot be compared to other Grape Seed extracts on the market that may not be as biologically active, as shown in the video demonstration. Anthogenol® is known as the ‘Rolls Royce of antioxidants’, it was tested at Southern Cross University in NSW and found to have the highest ORAC (antioxidant) score of any substance tested there.

Scientific breakthrough

In 1948, French Professor Jack Masquelier found a natural plant substance, a high performance phyto-nutrient called oligomeric proanthocyanidins (known as OPCs).

Decades of research

Anticipating the far-reaching health benefits of this discovery, Masquelier spent his entire scientific career developing, perfecting and researching OPCs, known as MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs, and now famous for their potent vascular benefits.

OPCs appear in nature in many different forms with varying degrees of efficacy, however they are most highly concentrated in the woody parts of plants. Masquelier developed a exacting, patented method to extract this powerful antioxidant, which lead to the development of Anthogenol® – a highly refined, easily absorbed form of Grape Seed extract.

Professor Masquelier’s scientific explorations led to the introduction of 2 vascular medicines in France, aimed at providing relief in a broad variety of vascular disorders, from venous insufficiency to hemorrhoids, to diabetic retinopathy, heavy legs and oedema following breast surgery.

Professor-Masquelier[2.1]

SEAL OF AUTHENTICITY

Renowned French phyto (plant) scientist, Professor Masquelier, was the first to discover OPCs in 1947 and harness their nutritional qualities for therapeutic use.

Only OPCs that meet Professor Masquelier’s exactingly high standards of quality and have been created using the MASQUELIER’s® proprietary process are entitled to carry the “MASQUELIER’s® Seal of Authenticity”.

Who should use it?

Anyone (20 years plus) who wants to age healthily, and especially those with a history of or susceptibility to:

  • Vascular problems
  • Circulatory problems
  • Eye problems

How is Anthogenol® different to regular grape seed extract?

Anthogenol® is comprised of 3 active ingredients, these being Vitamin C, silica and the main active ingredient MASQUELIER’s® original OPCs. It is the patented process of isolating the OPCs from their source that sets Anthogenol® apart. The current source is grape seed, but it is the purity, not the source of the OPCs that makes all the difference. Watch the video for further clarity.

What is the recommended dosage?

The suggested dose of 1 capsule per day, taken before a meal, has shown benefits after three months (although benefits may be felt sooner). In some cases, such as athletic support or for treatment of varicose veins, the dose can be increased to 1 capsule two or three times daily.

Are there any side effects?

During decades of use by millions of patients worldwide, there have been no serious adverse effects as a result of taking the OPCs in Anthogenol® on their own, or with other dietary supplements or prescription medicines.

Is it safe to use when on prescription medicine?

Anthogenol® complements conventional medicines. There have been no contra-indications to date however it is recommended to to seek advice from a nutritionally orientated medical practitioner first. If you are taking Warfarin, you will need to see your doctor before starting on Anthogenol® so your INR can be monitored and Warfarin dose adjusted if necessary.

Pregnancy?

Although Anthogenol® has no known contraindications, again seek medical advice in the case of pregnancy.

Is the product suitable for vegetarians?

Yes it is vegetarian and vegan friendly. It contains NO gluten, milk products, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours, or animal products.

How long before results are felt/seen?

Anthogenol® is not a drug yet can show immediate and observable effects in vein-lymphatic support (oedema- functional symptoms of varicose veins); immune support (allergies) and skin condition (tone/softness). The biological makeup of every individual is different and results get better with continued use. Best results should start to be felt after 2 -3 months of use, some individuals will feel results sooner.
