ABSTRACT:
Proanthocyanidins (PCs) are a class of phenolic compounds that take the form of oligomers or polymers of polyhydroxy flavan-3-ol units. The (PCs) are an integral part of the human diet, and are found in high concentrations in Grape seed extract (GSE). Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are the most abundant polyphenolic substances found in GSE. From the point of view of OPCs potential protective action towards cardiovascular disease and the oxygen free radical scavenger capacity, it has attracted considerable attention of the international scientific community during the last thirty years. The purpose of this article is to give a lucid explanation of the Structure, Monograph and Biological properties, and also shed a light on both the laboratory and clinical research of the OPCs obtained from GSE, and making them a potentially valuable therapeutic tool for the treatment of a variety of ill health conditions.
