NOW foods Pycnogenol
- has one of the strongest antioxidant effects in the world. It exhibits the property of regulating the inflammatory response of the body and may reduce platelet aggregation by inhibiting the production of thromboxane. Pycnogenol is also a strong nitric oxide booster, which has a positive effect on the condition of the cardiovascular system. Thanks to this, it can regulate blood pressure and have a positive effect on blood vessels.
These Pycnogenol pills are skinny in size and thus very easy to swallow. They have no strange smells. And I enjoy that they come in a packaging that has some old-school cotton inside. I currently take two a day, and so far, I am feeling good about them. This brand is known for its quality of ingredients and its affordable price points. I am very likely to buy these same pills from this same brand but an even bigger bottle next time.
I especially like the benefits of Pycnogenol and have preferred the NOW brand for over 5+ years. Since starting Pycnogenol, I have been able to sleep better and have found that it compliments my asthma and menopause medications that I take. I have tried other forms of Pine Bark but highly recommend Pycnogenol for its benefits and complete lack of side effects.
I took Pycnogenol for Maintaining General Health as Pycnogenol, a standardized extract of the bark of the French P. pinaster, has been used worldwide as a herbal remedy, nutrition and supplemental food in many kinds of degenerative diseases. Bark extract of French P. pinaster has been reported to have cardio-vascular and cholesterol lowering benefits, the ability to enhance microcirculation by increasing capillary permeability, significant free radical scavenging activity against reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, the potential to regenerate the ascorbyl radical and to protect endogenous vitamin E and glutathione from oxidative stress, and the potential to protect erythrocytes in G6PD deficiency. It also protects the nerve cells against beta-amyloid, or glutamate induced toxicity, accelerates wound healing processes, reduces scar formation, decreases histamine release from mast cells, and inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokine actions. Anti-inflammatory effects in asthma patients and reduction of attention-deficit disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms in children have been observed. Highly Recommended 👍👍👍
I just started using pycnogenol. I’m adding this to my other supplements for skin care I also use pine bark extract which also has pycnogenol in it.
You can’t go wrong with Now brands I have so many supplements by Now.
