Pharma Nord's Bio-Pycnogenol is a unique plant extract that originates from the bark of the maritime pine trees grown in sustainable forests in south-western France. Pycnogenol supplements, Bio-Pycnogenol from Pharma Nord contains French maritime bark (Pinus pinaster) which works as an antioxidant by protecting cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. It is a natural source of proathrocyanadins.
Free radicals are chemicals that are created by our own metabolism as well as from environmental factors such as smoking, air pollution and UV light exposure.
Scientific research demonstrates that Pycnogenol provides a multitude of health benefits which encompass heart and circulation, skin care, joint health, seasonal itchy eyes and runny nose, plus glucose control and menstrual discomfort.
Pycnogenol is a potent antioxidant, with an antioxidant activity approximately fifty times that of vitamin C. Because of the chemical structure of Pycnogenol, it can be incorporated into and protect both the aqueous (cytoplasmic) and lipid (cell memrane) phases of cells from damage by free radicals. Pycnogenol also promotes increased availability of vitamin C within the body.
Pycnogenol antioxidants are particularly effective for maintaining healthy functioning of blood vessels, and the eyes, as well as maintaining normal strength, flexibility and suppleness of the skin. Pycnogenol also helps maintain a normal response by the body to allergic or inflammatory challenge.
