• Pycnogenol® (Pine Bark Extract) is a source of proanthocyanidins (PCOs).
PCOs are bioflavonoids, a group of water-soluble, low molecular weight plant substances with recognized antioxidant (free radical scavenging) properties. They have the ability to inhibit the activity of certain enzymes which cause pro-inflammatory reactions within the body.* PCOs are unique because they are immediately bioavailable.
In some comparative tests, Proanthocyanidins were found to be 50 times more potent than Vitamin E and 20 times more potent than Vitamin C as antioxidants.* Free radicals are oxygen atoms which can badly damage cell structures leading to lowered immune response and vulnerability to numerous degenerative diseases. The PCOs in Pycnogenol® are able to perform within the cell membrane and neutralize both fat and water-soluble free radicals.*
PCO’s are important to brain function, because they are one of the few dietary antioxidants that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to directly support healthy brain cells, focus, concentration and memory.* Proanthocyanidins help to prevent the release of histamine from mast cells thereby reducing the adverse effects of histamine.*
Pycnogenol® also has the unique ability to bond to collagen fibers.* It may support the inhibition of the natural enzymes your body makes that normally break down collagen.* By restoring collagen, Pycnogenol® helps support flexibility of skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other tissues.*
