More facts about Pycnogenol®

Pycnogenol contains procyanidins, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds that help your body fight back against the normal aging process through the mechanisms listed above.

Vascular health and circulation

Pycnogenol® supports endothelial health, arterial health, and healthy circulation by helping to inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokine molecules. It also encourages nitric oxide synthesis to promote vasodilation and healthy blood flow, and reduces oxidative stress that can affect the delicate endothelial cells that line artery walls.

Antioxidant and blood sugar support

Pycnogenol® bolsters your body’s antioxidant defenses, inhibiting the free-radical activity that is so damaging to cells, tissue, organs, and even your DNA.  Pycnogenol has also been demonstrated to help maintain healthy blood sugar already in the normal range.

Now available as a single-nutrient supplement

We believe in this extract’s unique health benefits so much, we’ve incorporated it into our arterial, circulatory, and ocular health formulas, but you can also add Pycnogenol® to your supplement regimen with this stand-alone product. Try Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark today.
