Pycnogenol® is the extract from the bark of the French Maritime Pine Tree, which grows in south-west France.
It is a natural, concentrated source of plant-derived proanthocyanidins, a complex of naturally-occurring flavonoids and other biologically active components.
Pycnogenol® is an antioxidant. In addition, this unique compound supports cardiovascular health, healthy capillaries and circulation in the legs.*
Pycnogenol® is also widely used in both topical and oral applications for various skin indications. It binds with skin proteins collagen and elastin. Pycnogenol® effects on skin elasticity and hydration coincide with increased gene expressions of collagen type I and hyaluronic acid synthase in women.
