Product Description

Pine tree ingredients have long played a key role in human health and nutrition. In Asia, the needles (leaves), pine nuts (seeds), young cones, pollen, bark and root growths (Fuling, Poria cocos) were prime ingredients in Taoist diets, tonic formulations and royal cuisine. Overall, they were all believed to promote glowing health and lead to potential great longevity. Recently, all these tree parts have been successfully turned into popular dietary supplements. In particular, the bark of the French Maritime Pine tree has become a worldwide nutraceutical phenomenon. Pycnogenol® is a standardized extract of French Maritime Pine Bark. It contains the active ingredients known as proanthocyanidins. Pycnogenol® is a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger), even more powerful than well-established antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Our Pycnogenol® French Maritime Pine Bark Extract is produced by a European phyto-pharmaceutical company and is manufactured under strict European quality control standards and meticulously extracted to provide the optimal level of 65-75% natural occurring Procyanidins. The extract helps maintain immune system balance, selectively binds to collagen and elastin, and it aids in the production of endothelial nitric oxide which helps to relax (dilate) blood vessels. Pycnogenol® also supports collagen maintenance and protects it against attack by free radicals and collagen-degrading enzymes, the elastases and collagenases, by binding to collagen fibers and realigning them in a less damaged form. This protective action is believed to help enhance skin smoothness by reducing premature facial wrinkles caused by skin inelasticity, keeping the skin smooth and elastic. Pycnogenol® improves peripheral circulation, strengthens blood vessels, and helps maintain capillary activity. It improves peripheral circulation by supporting venous sufficiency and supporting fluid circulation in the lower legs. By increasing vitamin C activity in capillary walls and strengthening collagen (intracellular “cement”), Pycnogenol® supports capillary activity. It protects the collagen-rich connective tissue in artery walls and joints and supports normal healthy joint maintenance.
