Pycnogenol (French Maritime Pine Bark)

Pycnogenol is a pine bark extract known as a powerful antioxidant with the ability to relieve inflammation, and to improve the immune and circulatory system. The first known reference to pine bark as a therapeutic application was by Hippocrates in the 4th Century B.C. He noted that pine bark could be used as a way to reduce inflammation. In 1479 Miners from Switzerland in his book Thesaurus Medicaminum said that pine bark was useful in healing wounds. Around the same time a German naturalist, Hieronymus Boch said that pine bark made a good topical remedy for many skin disorders.

As an antioxidant, pycnogenol can help reduce cell damage. It may promote a healthy circulatory system by influencing the production of endothelial nitric oxide. Pycnogenol can reduce inflammation by regulating the immune system. By binding to collagen and elastin, it could help protect skin, organs, connective tissue, and arteries.
