Discover the power of Pycnogenol®

What is Pycnogenol®?

Pycnogenol® is the premier pine bark extract, derived from the bark of single-species pine trees grown in the pristine Les Landes de Gascogne forest in southwest France. This exceptional extract has been the subject of over 160 clinical trials over the past 40 years, consistently demonstrating its superior benefits in activating important functions in the body, benefiting performance & general wellness.

The Unique Source of Pycnogenol®

Our Pycnogenol® is sourced from pine trees grown in a pesticide and herbicide-free forest, ensuring the highest quality components. The patented extraction process adheres to Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) and is conducted in a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant facility without toxic solvents. Sustainability is a priority, with the forest managed under French forestry legislation, requiring the replanting of fallen trees annually.

How Does Pycnogenol® Work?

Pycnogenol® is a unique blend of procyanidins, bioflavonoids, and organic acids, offering unparalleled potency as a natural antioxidant. It is 20 times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times stronger than Vitamin E in neutralising harmful free radicals. This versatile ingredient tackles oxidative stress, acts as a potent free radical scavenger, exhibits natural anti-inflammatory properties, and boosts the production of endothelial nitric oxide, enhancing blood flow and exercise performance.

Key Benefits of Pycnogenol®

Antioxidant Power

Pycnogenol® effectively combats free radicals, increasing cellular antioxidant capacity and capturing free radicals in the bloodstream.

Improved Blood Flow

Enhances the production of nitric oxide, improving blood flow, muscle contractility, cellular energy, and glucose uptake.

Muscle Recovery

Reduces muscular pain and cramps, speeds up recovery after exercise, and supports muscle integrity as it is a powerful inflammatory response modulator.

Healthy Joints

By regenerating collagen and hyaluronic acid, it helps the body
naturally support healthy cartilage
for improved joint comfort.

Is Pycnogenol® Safe?

Pycnogenol® is a highly researched supplement, proven safe for consumption even at high doses and with long-term use. While mild side effects like gastrointestinal discomfort, headache, nausea, and dizziness have been infrequently reported, it is recommended to take Pycnogenol® with or after meals to minimize any potential stomach upset.

Pycnogenol® in Sports Nutrition

During physical exercise, efficient blood flow is critical for muscle oxygenation and performance. Pycnogenol® supports this by enhancing the production of nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator that improves circulation and nutrient delivery to muscles. This leads to optimal muscle performance, faster recovery, and reduced muscle pain and cramps.

Pycnogenol®, a natural energy solution

Studies have shown that Pycnogenol® improves blood flow characteristics, enhances the functioning of mitochondria (the energy-producing units in cells), and facilitates the uptake of glucose into cells, leading to faster energy production. This makes Pycnogenol® an essential component for athletes, anyone engaging in physical activity or needing to boost energy levels throughout the day.
