Flavay's® is a scavenger of the free radicals that play a major role in the degradation of collagen and initiation, duration and breakdown of inflammation. That means that your joints hurt less and your blood flows better. (1,18,19)

  • Flavay® is the authentic small-cluster proanthocyanidins complex derived from French pine bark and grape seeds—pure and unadulteratedused in the actual experiments by which Dr. Jack Masquelier patented the "Radical Scavenger Effect." of Flavay®

    "[A] method for preventing and fighting the harmful biological effects of free radicals in the organism of warm blooded animals and more especially human beings, namely cerebral involution, hypoxia following atherosclerosis, cardiac or cerebral infarction, tumour promotion, inflammation, ischaemia, alterations of the synovial liquid, collagen degradation, among others. The method consists in administering to said animals and especially to human beings an amount, efficient against said effects, of a plant extract with a proanthocyanidins content which has a radical scavenger effect"—U.S. Patent No. 4,698,360 (1987).
