Pycnogenol® is the extract of the pine bark (Pinus maritima) and is one of the most effective natural antioxidants. More than 130 scientific studies have dealt with Pycnogenol® and confirmed it’s antioxidative capacity. Studies at the University of California showed that Pycnogenol® is more effective than Vitamin E and C. It is even capable of restoring oxidized Vitamin C to the bioactive form, and of protecting Vitamin E from oxidation. Therefore, it has been deemed the „new super antioxidant.” It helps to prevent the platelets from sticking together, keeps blood pressure at a normal level even during times of stress, and helps to reduce symptoms caused by varicosis. Furthermore, it assists in the rebuilding of skin tissue, slows abnormal skin pigmentation, and internally helps to protect against harmful effects of sun UV radiation.
Pycnogenol® is amplified with alpha lipoic acid, the number 1 among the radical scavengers. Alpha lipoic acid is a very special scavenger, because unlike other antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid is effective as an antioxidant both in water soluble environments and in fat soluble environments. Also alpha lipoic acid helps to recycle other antioxidants (i.e. Vitamin C and E). Furthermore it has been proven that through alpha lipoic acid, the intracellular level of glutathione is raised (a sulfurous compound from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid, which takes part in numerous metabolism processes and is therefore very important to the body). As part of the glutathione peroxidase, it protects the cells and various other structures from oxidation.
