Some Health Benefits of Pycnogenol
Pycnogenol is a patented mixture of phytochemicals extracted from the French maritime tree bark, and is a very powerful mix of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances. These are primarily various proanthocyanidins, although there are several others. Pycnogenol is well known for maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system, but it also offers other properties that present many different health benefits other than just its effect on blood pressure and cardiac health in general.
The supplement has been found to help with the control of blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetics. This reduction in blood sugar also suggests its potential use in weight loss, and Japanese research has indicated that Pycnogenol can help to break down fats within fat cells, and also to prevent the buildup of fats in such body cells.
Because Pycnogenol can depress immune reactions through its anti-inflammatory properties, studies have shown that it can help asthmatics to breathe easier by increasing their lung volume. The same anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce the effects of acne, eczema and psoriasis on the skin, and trials with psoriasis have been particularly effective in reducing the extent and number of psoriatic lesions in sufferers.
Pycnogenol offers a number of other health benefits, and should be taken by those suffering the effects of free radical oxidation or inflammation brought on by the immune system.
Proanthocyanidin Complex * 25 mg, 50 mg, 75 mg and 100 mg
Pycnogenol is a natural plant product made from the bark of the European coastal pine, Pinus maritima. This powerful antioxidant is rich in proanthocyanidins, a special class of water-soluble bioflavonoids. Proanthocyanidins are potent antioxidants that effectively scavenge both water- and lipid-soluble free radicals. Proanthocyanidins also support the integrity of elastin and collagen, important constituents of connective tissue.
