• Helps control blood sugar levels
• Supports Cognitive Function in children and elderly
• Reduces oxidative damage to vital tissues
• Inhibits enzymes that cause inflammation
What is Pycnogenol®?
Pycnogenol® is the extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree which grows in Les Landes in south-west France. This unspoiled and natural environment is the unique source of Pycnogenol®.
More than 130 scientific articles and clinical trials have confirmed Pycnogenol®'s safety, absence of toxicity and clinical efficacy. Pycnogenol® is one of the best researched natural products. Scientific evidence on its Antioxidative Capacity and protective action on the Vascular System have been published in the most renowned scientific journals. Additional published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol®'s beneficial effects in Diabetes, Cholesterol Control, Inflammation, Asthma, Skin Care, Menstrual Disorders, Fertility, Sport Endurance and Cognitive Function in children and elderly.
What exactly does Pycnogenol® do?
Pycnogenol® is the most efficient natural free radical scavenger known. As such, it reduces oxidative damage to vital tissues. In vitro (outside the body) laboratory studies have shown Pycnogenol® to be 2 times more effective than vitamin E as an antioxidant. And, unlike virtually all other dietary antioxidants, Pycnogenol® probably crosses the blood-brain barrier to protect vital brain and nerve tissue from oxidation.
Pycnogenol® inhibits enzymes that cause inflammation. It reduces histamine production, thereby helping the lining of arteries resist attack by mutagens which can cause cardiovascular disease. It restores capillary integrity and improves circulation, making it a little easier for each cell to get the food it needs. Improved circulation is especially valuable to smokers, diabetics, stroke victims, arthritics, women taking oral contraceptives, and persons with swollen, edematous legs.
And Pycnogenol® has the unique ability to bond to collagen fibers. It helps rebuild their crosslinks to reverse some of the damage done over the years by injury and free radical attack. Pycnogenol® even inhibits the natural enzymes your body makes that normally break down collagen. All cells in the human body are glued together with collagen. By restoring collagen, Pycnogenol® helps return flexibility to skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other tissues.
Pycnogenol® is produced by a validated manufacturing process following Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
Pycnogenol® represents a natural blend of genetically programmed constant proportions of bioflavonoids including catechin, epicatechin, taxifolin, monomers, dimers of catechin and epicatechin, oligomeric procyanidnins and phenolic fruit acids such as ferulic acid and caffeic acid.
