Pycnogenol® may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals wishing to to increase their intake of natural antioxidants in the bioflavonoid family of nutrients.
Pycnogenol capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 25 mg of pure, patented pine bark extract in each capsule.
Pycnogenol 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.
The unique nutrient mixture supplied by Pycnogenol 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.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 capsule up to 3 times daily with meals or as directed by your healthcare professional.
