Pycnogenol is a pine bark extract rich in proanthocyanidins and antioxidant properties. The mixture of proanthocyanidins in pine bark supports vascular endothelial integrity by stabilizing collagenous membranes. They also promote vascular function by modulating nitric oxide levels.
Pycnogenol is used to support cognitive function and cardiovascular health.
In addition to facilitating vitamin C regeneration and preserving vitamin E in the body, pycnogenol is a potent hydroxyl and superoxide radical scavenger. Collectively, these actions promote the health of blood vessels.
While “pycnogenol” originally denoted all proanthocyanidin extracts regardless of source, it now refers specifically to maritime pine bark extract.
