benefits of pycnogenol

Pycnogenol (pronounced pick-nah-geh-nol), is a trademarked name for proanthocyanidin, a bioflavanoid complex extracted from the bark of the European coastal pine, Pinus Maritima. It is a powerful antioxidant, and is being studied as a treatment for many free-radical-related disorders, including Alzheimer’s, cancer, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and senility.

Pycnogenol has anti-ageing properties and is usually taken to boost the immune response and prevent the degenerative diseases of ageing, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, heart attack, arthritis and diabetes.
