Oligopin is extracted from French Maritime Pine Bark (also known as pinus pinaster)‚ a tree primarily found in certain parts of the Mediterranean. Research and scientific studies have suggested numerous possible health benefits from the bark extract in Oligopin. The main reason for this is because Oligopin contains procyanidins‚ a type of bioflavonoid (also referred to as flavonoids). Flavonoids are polyphenolic substances found normally in plants.
The procyanidins in Oligopin are said to have numerous health benefits. For instance‚ some scientific research and studies have suggested that procyanidins could possibly help support a healthy cardiovascular system. One such way they possibly do this is by inhibiting the production of endothelin-1‚ a protein that decreases the diameter of blood vessels.
It has also been suggested that the procyanidin bioflavonoids in Oligopin help support joint and connective tissue health by helping regulate collagen and elastin. Collagen is a key component in the production and structure of ligaments‚ skin‚ cartilage‚ and more. Elastin is responsible for allowing connective tissue to be elastic‚ having the ability to stretch/contract and return to their natural shape.
Oligopin's procyanidins also seem to have antioxidant features. The reason that antioxidants may be important is due to the presence of free radicals. The way it works is this: healthy cells mean healthy body. However‚ sometimes some atoms in our body can have unpaired electrons; this is what is known as a free radical. These free radicals can then potentially pose health risk to our bodies by damaging our cells. The reason antioxidants are so important is because it's possible that they may search for and eliminate these free radicals in our bodies‚ promoting health and wellness by supporting healthy cells.
The procyanidins in Oligopin are also the same flavonoids (antioxidants) reported to be in red wine.
