Description

Pycnogenol&reg is one of the most powerful natural free-radical scavengers yet discovered. As such, it reduces oxidative damage to vital tissues and helps maintain a healthy capillary system.

Pycnogenol’s antioxidant activity is many times more effective than that of vitamin C and vitamin E. Pycnogenol® enhances the effectiveness of vitamins C and E and can be taken together with these vitamins for added benefit. Pycnogenol® is composed of water-soluble procyanidins, consisting of linked catechin and epicatechin subunits to form dimers, trimers and large flavonoid molecules with up to twelve condensed subunits. Pycnogenol® is standardized to contain 70% procyanidins in accordance to United States Pharmacopoeia requirements. The remaining constituents of Pycnogenol® resemble monomeric components such as free catechin, taxifolin and a range of naturally-occurring organic acids such as ferulic acid and caffeic acid. The unique nutrient mixture supplied by Pycnogenol&reg helps maintain a healthy capillary system in several ways. It protects vitamin C which is necessary for the production of collagen. Pycnogenol® can also naturally stimulate production of nitric oxide in blood vessels which is vital for supporting normal arterial health. Furthermore, Pycnogenol® binds to collagen fibers, protecting them from attack by free radicals so that the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries and other tissues is maintained.* Recent research indicates that Pycnogenol® may play important roles in lung health, normal glucose metabolism and cardiovascular health. Additional research shows that Pycnogenol&reg may play valuable roles in maintaining normal joint mobility, neurological and mental functioning and healthy gums.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
