Pycnogenol helps restore the integrity of tissues, improving skin elasticity and smoothness while supporting the health of blood vessels, lung tissue, and intestinal membranes. The formula offers standardized amounts of procyanidins and bioflavonoids, and has four basic properties. It is one of the most potent scavengers of free radicals; acts as a natural anti-inflammatory; helps generate collagen and hyaluronic acid to repair membranes; and helps dilate blood vessels.The patented extract is sourced from the bark of pine trees grown exclusively in southwest France using no pesticides or herbicides. The concentrated formula is extracted using a safe, chemical-free process that guarantees the potency and purity of Pycnogenol’s active compounds. Pycnogenol is extensively clinically tested, extremely safe, and effective. The antioxidant power of Pycnogenol is 20 times greater than vitamin C, and 50 times greater than vitamin E.

How it works
By boosting endothelial production of nitric oxide, Pycnogenol increases vasodilation of blood vessels to improve blood flow and prevent stress-induced constriction of arteries. Because free radical damage can lead to high LDL (bad) cholesterol, Pycnogenol’s antioxidant activity helps balance cholesterol levels.
As an anti-inflammatory, Pycnogenol helps produce collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen, which decreases as we age, is present in all the connective tissue in our bodies, but it is especially important for skin and joint health. Hyaluronic acid helps lubricate the joints. It is present in the skin, where it is involved with tissue repair.
