  • Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Vascular Support
  • Vegetarian/Vegan

 

Pycnogenol is a natural plant product made from the bark of French Maritime pine. Pycnogenol® has naturally occurring procyanidins, a special class of water-soluble antioxidant flavonoids which are excellent free radical scavengers. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that Pycnogenol® helps to maintain vascular strength and function. In addition, Pycnogenol has been shown to support a healthy, balanced inflammatory response.

Pycnogenol is a premium herbal supplement extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine tree. This special pine bark is loaded with a concentrate of active bioflavonoids, and this extract is a potent blend of active compounds. Extensive research over a period of more than many years has proven the safety and benefits of pycnogenol  for human health. As one of the most potent natural scavenger of free radicals, Pycnogenol destroys all kinds of aggressive radicals, before they cause any damage by oxidative stress.

Pycnogenol boosts the immune system and it strengthens blood vessel walls and capillaries, and supportsbetter circulation by preventing stress-induced constriction of arteries and blood clotting. Studies show that pycnogenolhas cardiovascular benefits, boosts the immune system, improves the appearance of the skin, treats varicose veins, relieves the pain of arthritis, and reduces inflammation. 


As an antioxidant, pycnogenol protects the nervous system from free-radical damage. It also improves circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the brain, and clears away metabolic waste products. Research indicates that pycnogenol may protect brain cells from the toxic actions of amyloid beta-protein-an abnormal protein substance-which is characteristically found in high amounts in the brain tissue of people with Alzheimer's disease.

Amyloid beta-protein forms plaques in the central nervous system, and is directly toxic to nerve cells in cell cultures. In this way, pycnogenol not only offers protection from free radicals, it also protects against the biochemical breakdown of the nervous system's membrane structures by inhibiting some of the adverse effects that amyloid beta-proteins have on brain function.


Due to its antioxidant activity and other health benefits, pycnogenol can help reduce the effects of aging and slow or prevent the development of degenerative diseases, such as cancer and arthritis. It has been observed to produce an anti-inflammatory effect, which can be explained by its ability to inhibit pro-inflammatory biochemicals and improve circulatory function, as well as by its antioxidant activity. Pycnogenol is a natural remedy for preventing aging of the skin with it's
ability to improve circulation and protect and rebuild collagen, which is an important structural protein in the skin.
