Pycnogenol® is one of the most powerful natural free-radical scavengers yet discovered. As such, it reduces oxidative damage to vital tissues and helps maintain a healthy capillary system. Pycnogenol acts as an antioxidant and may enhance the effectiveness of vitamins C and E when taken together for added benefits.
Pycnogenol® is composed of water-soluble procyanidins, consisting of linked catechin and epicatechin subunits to form dimers, trimers and large flavonoid molecules with up to twelve condensed subunits. Pycnogenol® is standardized to contain 70% procyanidins in accordance to United States Pharmacopoeia requirements. The remaining constituents of Pycnogenol® resemble monomeric components such as free catechin, taxifolin and a range of naturally-occurring organic acids such as ferulic acid and caffeic acid.
The unique nutrient profile supplied by Pycnogenol® helps maintain a healthy capillary system in several ways. It protects vitamin C which is necessary for the production of collagen. Pycnogenol® can also naturally stimulate production of nitric oxide in blood vessels which is vital for supporting normal arterial health. Furthermore, Pycnogenol® binds to collagen fibers, protecting them from attack by free radicals so that the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries and other tissues is maintained.
