Pine Barb Extract

Pine Barb Extract

Although pine bark extract has been used for medicinal purposes for nearly 500 years, it is enjoying a surge in popularity, due to a wealth of new research on its specific health benefits.  This natural supplement is harvested from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which is indigenous to the western Mediterranean region.  Pine bark extract contains powerful disease-fighting antioxidants called proanthocyanidins.

Current research demonstrates that pine bark extract may help:

  • Ditch diabetes
  • Alleviate arthritis
  • Ease attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Manage menopause symptoms
  • Breath easier
  • Speed wound healing
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Cancer fighter
  • Sooth Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)

The most popular formulation of pine bark extract is marketed under the brand name Pycnogenol®.  However, there are many other sources available.Dr. Barbara Smith
