The year was 1997 and the world had only just begun to realise just how vital antioxidants are to health, or really how destructive free radicals are when not kept in check. Free radicals damage cells’ DNA and tissue through a process called oxidation – the key cause for deliberating diseases from aging, arthritis to cancer.
LAC, short for Leader in Anti-oxidative Control, was born in realisation of the market’s need for a powerful antioxidant. MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract was LAC’s first product, a patented and original product of Professor Jack Masquelier, the scientist who discovered the powerful antioxidant in French Pine Bark extract called Oligomeric Proanthocyanidines (OPCs), and pioneered the extraction and scientific work of this active compound.
Today, LAC has some 50 exceptional nutraceutical products providing discerning consumers with unparalleled solutions for their health and wellness.
