Pycnogenol is the brand name for bark extract derived from the French maritime pine tree‚ Pinus maritima. It naturally contains antioxidants‚ which prevent molecules called free radicals from attacking your cells. This extract is also a natural source of proanthocyanidins‚ chemicals that have been shown to support heart health while relieving some allergy symptoms.
Antioxidants are present in fruits‚ vegetables‚ and whole grains‚ while proanthocyanidins are found in red wine‚ red grape juice‚ and the seeds and skin of grapes. A nutrient-poor or inconsistent diet—which can happen to anyone—can result in insufficient intake of both. A supplement like Pycnogenol 100 mg by Pure Encapsulations can help if you want to avoid a deficiency in either.
If you have venous insufficiency‚ a condition in which your veins struggle to pump blood from your lower legs to your heart‚ Pycnogenol may help reduce some of the swelling and pain it causes. This supplement may also lessen painful inflammation and promote healthy vision.
While Pycnogenol is safe for most people to use‚ it has the potential to interfere with the effects of some prescription medications. It may also cause irritability and tiredness in some people. Ask your doctor before starting to take it.
Each vegetable capsule of Pycnogenol provides 100 mg of pine bark extract to support blood vessel health. It also contains vitamin C‚ which encourages your body to repair any cell damage that already exists. This bottle of Pure Encapsulations’ Pycnogenol contains 60 capsules‚ which will last you from one to two months‚ depending on your dosage.
