Pycnogenol is a natural extract from the bark of the French Maritime Pine and is considered to be one of the most powerful antioxidant available. Antioxidants are important to health as they can combat the effects of free radical damage in the body. Free radicals are 'rogue molecules' released in the body in excess as a by-product of modern living and environmental toxins. Pycnogenol consists of bioflavonoids, known as proanthocyanidin, plus a myriad of other components. Pycnogenol can help to protect the body against free radical attack. If these free radicals go unchecked, they can result in damage to body tissues. By taking adequate amounts of antioxidants, the body can be protected against blood vessel damage, by improving capillary resistance. This means the body can become more resistant to such conditions as varicose veins. It also helps maintain the flexibility of body joints, the health of organs and the elasticity of the skin.
Pycnogenol provides a potent source of Antioxidants, suitable to take on a daily basis, to help maintain the health of blood vessels and organs, including the skin. Pycnogenol is recommended for anyone suffering from premature ageing of the skin. It benefits smokers, anyone who is exposed to environmental pollutants on a regular basis, or who frequently consumes alcohol. Pycnogenol is suited to such conditions as prostate inflammation and other inflammatory conditions, varicose veins and other circulatory problems. It may help skin disorders such as inflammatory conditions and excessive signs of ageing, as well as allergic responses.
