In southern France, the beautiful and lush forests are home to a species of French pine trees (Pinus pinaster) that contain unique health-promoting properties. Its use dates back to the 1500s when French explorer Jacques Cartier and his sailors struggled with scurvy – frank vitamin C deficiency – during their long sailing voyages from France to the New World. The story goes that First Nations tribes shared their ancestral wisdom with Cartier and used the local pine tree bark as a decoction (e.g. herbal tea) to prevent scurvy.
Today, we know that the best source of pine bark comes from the unspoiled Southwest Forests of France, specifically in its patented ingredient form called Pycnogenol®. The extraction process of Pycnogenol® is patented and complies with the highest quality standards. Moreover, it is one of the most researched natural ingredients on the market today with over 370 published studies. Pycnogenol® is a good source of vitamin C as well as numerous phytochemicals, natural plant compounds that support better health. The “all-stars” of the group are proanthocyanidins, powerful antioxidant compounds (more potent than Vitamin C and E) that provide a wealth of added health benefits. Pycnogenol® is a standardized supplement formula guaranteed to contain at least 65-75% proanthocyanidins, the active ingredient that triggers all these benefits. Remember, a good diet and regular exercise should always be the foundation for building your best health. However, sometimes the body needs a little-added support and supplemental Pycnogenol® can go a long way to keeping your brain and body sharp always.
