Pycnogenol® is the trademark for a French Maritime Pine Bark Extract, with compounds that support your body’s natural defences against five major processes related to prem-ature ageing. It has been shown to:
- Support membrane function by promoting the integrity and normal characteristics of cell membranes;
- Support healthy DNA function through antioxidant activity and possibly other mechanisms;
- Ease inflammation by normal modulation of inflammatory cytokine molecules;
- Fight oxidative stress by supporting the normal functioning of healthy antioxidant systems to help suppress free radicals and protect DNA;
- Fight glycation by supporting cellular metabolism of sugar, healthy fasting and normal post-meal blood sugar levels and normal sugar absorption in the intestine.
Unlike other forms of pine bark extract, Pycnogenol® is a patented ingredient that has undergone extensive human clinical research over 40 years to substantiate its numerous anti-ageing properties.
