A natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne.
This unspoiled and natural forest environment is the unique source of Pycnogenol. Pycnogenol represents a natural combination of genetically programmed constant proportions of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids.
The extract has four basic properties – it’s a powerful antioxidant, acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, selectively binds to collagen and elastic, and finally, promotes the production of endothelial nitric oxide which supports the normal vasodilation of blood vessels.
More than 190 scientific articles and clinical trials have confirmed Pycnogenol’s safety, absence of toxicity and clinical efficacy over the past 35 years. Todays, Pycnogenol is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace.
Published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol’s beneficial support of:
- Cardiovascular health
- Immune function
- Sports nutrition
- Symptomatic allergy relief
