Pine Bark Extract
Pine bark extract is made from the bark of a pine tree called the Landes or maritime pine, whose scientific name is Pinus maritima. The maritime pine is a member of the Pineaceae family. Pine bark extract is a new nutritional supplement used for its antioxidant properties, which are believed to be effective for a wide range of healing and preventative purposes. Pine bark extract has been patented by a French researcher under the name Pycnogenol (pronounced pick-nah-jen-all).Antioxidants play a key role of repairing and protecting cells in the body. They help protect against free radicals, which are damaging byproducts of metabolism and exposure to environmental pollutants. Free radical damage is believed to contribute to aging, as well as too severe conditions including heart disease and cancer. Common antioxidants are vitamins A, C, E, and the mineral selenium. Researchers have termed the group of antioxidants found in pine bark extract oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs for short. OPCs (also referred to as PCOs) are some of the most powerful antioxidants available.Much research has been conducted on OPCs and on pine bark extract. In France, pine bark extract and OPCs have been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness, and pine bark extract is a registered drug. Pine bark extract has been shown to contain a powerful antioxidant.

-Taking Pine bark extract helps to limit free radicalspotentially harmful chemicals that are
produced during the breakdown of foods in the body.
-Preventing and treating a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency
-Proanthocyanidins (or polyphenols) in Pine bark extract help keep veins and other blood
vessels from leaking.
-Pine bark extract has anti-inflammatory effects or have beneficial effects on circulation.
-Pine bark extract may reduce the stickiness of platelets, also is found to constrict the blood vessels and increase blood flow.
-From destroying bacterial invaders and cancer cells to relaying signals in the brain.
-Pine bark extract affects the production of NO in the white blood cells called macrophages –scavenger cells that spew out NO to destroy invading bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.
-Pine bark extract is beneficial for immune system, Pine bark extract suppresses the
production of NO (nitric oxide) and thus limits the collateral damage resulting from immune system attacks on viral and bacterial invaders. Excess NO has been linked to inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimers disease.
-Pine bark extract is used to reduce the risk and severity of heart disease, strokes, high cholesterol, and circulation problems.
-Pine Bark Extract is used in the nutritional treatment of varicose veins and edema, which is swelling in the body due to fluid retention and leakage of blood vessels.
-Arthritis and inflammation have also been improved in studies using pine bark extract, as well as the uncomfortable symptoms of PMS and menopause.
-The OPCs in pine bark extract are recommended for various eye conditions that are caused by blood vessel damage, such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
-Pine bark extract is recommended to improve the health and smoothness of the skin, including damage caused by overexposure to sunlight.
