Pycnogenol, a natural food supplement made from ingredients from the
pine bark tree, has some extraordinary antioxidant properties of a
complex combination of bioflavonoids. Pycnogenol has an exceptionally
high level of proanthocyanidins, its main ingredient, and it also
contains other water soluble bioflavonoids. This unique combination
provides a powerful, completely balanced all-natural antioxidant.
According to recent studies, a growing number of experts agree that
we need additional antioxidants to support our natural ability to fight
free radicals. A free radical is an oxygen molecule with an odd number
of electrons. Because electrons are normally paired, this creates an
imbalance, resulting in unstable, reactive and destructive molecules.
While some free radical activity is necessary for the proper
functioning of the body, too much may cause damage. Unfortunately, many
of today's environmental influences bombard us with free radicals and
possibly suppress our natural ability to hold them in check.
Fortunately, research has identified substances known as bioflavonoids
(especially proanthocyanidins) as an excellent source to help fight free
Although some bioflavonoids occur naturally in fruits and vegetables,
only 20% of Americans eat the recommended daily serving of these foods.
The lack of dietary intake is compounded by the fact that growing
methods and processing procedures actually deplete and even destroy
these naturally occurring antioxidants.
Pynogenol is an excellent source of antioxidant supplementation. It
is water soluble and exceptionally high in proanthocyanids and other
bioflavonoids. These unique qualities provide a superior natural
antioxidant that is easily absorbed.
One of the best sources of pycnogenol is Maritime Prime, made from
the bark of maritime pine bark.
