Pycnogenol is a patented pine bark extract with a constant content of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and phenolic acids. Its unique blend of active phytochemicals has 4 major properties that account for the many health benefits of Pycnogenol:
The patented Pycnogenol pine bark extract is extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine that grows along the southwestern coast of France. In more than 40 years of scientific research, its impressive effects and safety have been confirmed repeatedly.
With over 40 years of research, 160 clinical studies and 420 scientific papers, Pycnogenol is the most researched pine bark extract. The research covers the following areas:
nbsp;Research has found that Pycnogenol helps individuals maintain healthy circulation by increasing vasodilation of blood vessels, thus improving blood flow. Pycnogenol helps make blood platelets less likely to get stuck together, helping to reduce blood clots.
nbsp;By forming NO, Pycnogenol supports the body's ability to counteract narrowing of the blood vessels. Normalizing blood vessel diameter naturally helps maintain blood pressure that is already in the normal range.
nbsp;Studies have shown, that Pycnogenol strengthen the capillary walls and prevent edema. It can also seal the brittle capillaries and stop the flow of fluid and blood into the tissue, which leads to swelling, edema and micro-bleeding. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it also helps to reduce platelet aggregation.
nbsp;Pycnogenol helps improve the vascular system of the eye and maintain normal eyesight. Pycnogenol also strengthens the capillaries of the retina. It has been shown to reduce permeability and improve retinal blood flow in people with early-stage retinopathy, which has resulted in a significant improvement in vision.
nbsp;According to studies, Pycnogenol was found to inhibit the release of histamine from mast cells that were stimulated by an irritant. And, since this powerful antioxidant is an anti-inflammatory, it inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators helping to relieve swelling and making breathing easier.
nbsp;Pycnogenol is a natural option for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. In clinical trials, supplementing with Pycnogenol was found to lower the bad LDL cholesterol while increasing the good HDL cholesterol.
nbsp;Pycnogenol binds to the skin proteins collagen and elastin and protects the skin from various harmful enzymes.It counteracts visible signs of aging, improves skin elasticity, smoothness and moisture in menopausal women. Pycnogenol helps promote the glow and reduce over- pigmentation for a more even complexion.
nbsp;In various studies, Pycnogenol demonstrated its ability to promote joint mobility and flexibility and naturally relieve aching. Pycnogenol has also been shown to lower inflammation markers for joint pain.
nbsp;Research has shown, that Pycnogenol improves the cognitive function. Studies using a computer test system have found that Pycnogenol improves both numerical and spatial working memory.
nbsp;Research shows Pycnogenol is effective in relieving tinnitus symptoms and improving inner ear blood flow. This study corroborates the prominence of Pycnogenol for improvement of vascular function which spans from the large arteries and veins to the tiniest micro-vessels.
nbsp;Research indicates Pycnogenol may play an important role in with physical activity.It was shown to help the body produce nitric oxide (NO), thus enhancing blood microcirculation and improving blood flow to the muscles. This helps the muscles to do their best. Regeneration after sports is accelerated, which can lead to a reduction in muscle pain.
Pycnogenol is a natural supplement and free from side effects. Pregnant women in the first trimester and children under 6 years of age should not take Pycnogenol as there are no studies for these groups.
