Quick Overview


Maritime Pine Bark Extract In 1534 North American Indians saved a group of French sailors who were dying from scurvy by feeding them tea brewed from the needles and bark of certain pine trees.

Pycnogenol (pick-nah-geh-nol) is a unique natural plant extract made from the bark of the Maritime Pine tree which grows on the coast of France. It was Professor Jacques Masquelier who discovered the biochemistry, the needles contain vitamin C and the bark contains flavanoids. He isolated the first compound in 1951 and coined the term Pycnogenol. The trees are cut for timber and the bark is used to make this, one tonne of raw pine bark makes about 2.5kg of pycnogenol. As an antioxidant, it has shown to be 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 20 times more than Vitamin C. It also offers support to the circulatory system by neutralising free radicals in the blood stream, Joint Protection, Tissue and Organ protection, inhibits the formulation of histamine which is responsible for causing allergic reactions, also improves skin elasticity and smoothness during aging.
