PaC is a combination of herbs that contain proanthocyanidins and phenolic and polyphenolic compounds. These constituents are an important class of secondary plant metabolites. These herbs in combination may act as free radical scavengers supporting conditions resulting from oxidative stress. Phenolic compounds from medicinal herbs and dietary plants possess a range of bioactivities and play an important role in prevention and management of inflammatory disorders.*
Encourages inhibition of oxidative damage*
Regulates a healthy inflammatory response*
Supports a healthy cellular life cycle*
