* OPC stands for oligomeric proanthocianidins. Although not vitamins in the strict sense of the word bioflavonoids, which were first called vitamin P by their discoverer, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi work together with vitamin C in many biological reactions and have common traits such as scavengers of oxygen reactive species. Because of that and to honor their discoverer we placed the OPC next to vitamin C in this table of vitamins and minerals.
