Pycnogenol is one of the most powerful antioxidants known. Oxidation by free radicals is believed to be a cause of cell damage associated with aging. Daily supplementation with Pycnogenol helps protect against oxidation and aids circulation.
Pycnogenol helps maintain healthy circulation by increasing vasodilation and consequently improving blood flow. Pycnogenol has been shown to reduce swollen legs and feet. It also helps to make blood platelets more “slippery”, helping to reduce the incidence of blood clots, the principal cause of heart attacks. Pycnogenol binds with collagen and elastin, and protects skin from various harmful enzymes, and also helps skin to rebuild elasticity, essential for a smooth, younger look. Pycnogenol may help in alleviating symptoms caused by diabetes in various ways. More than half the people suffering from diabetes will develop retinopathy, an eye disease caused by capillaries leaking blood into the retina. Two clinical studies have shown that Pycnogenol improves the breathing ability of asthmatics. Pycnogenol also acts as anti-histamine as it inhibits the release of histamines, helping to prevent triggers for allergic reactions.
