Description

Life Extension® Pycnogenol® French Maritime Pine Bark Extract is a natural plant extract containing procyanidins, bioflavonoids, and other health-giving molecules that synergistically support the body’s natural defenses against 5 major processes that characterize premature aging. Its effectiveness is backed by 40 years of study.

Life Extension® Pycnogenol® French Maritime Pine Bark Extract is designed to counteract premature-aging-related changes by providing support for the following mechanisms:

  • Membrane Function: Pycnogenol® promotes the integrity and normal characteristics of cell membranes.1-4
  • DNA Function: Pycnogenol® helps support normal DNA function through antioxidant activity and possibly other mechanisms.5-8
  • Ease Inflammation: Pycnogenol® helps ease inflammation by normal modulation of inflammatory cytokine molecules.9-13
  • Oxidative Stress: Pycnogenol® supports the normal functioning of healthy antioxidant systems to help suppress free radicals and protect DNA.14-19
  • Glycation: Pycnogenol® supports cellular metabolism of sugar, healthy fasting, and post-meal blood sugar levels already within normal range, and normal sugar absorption in the intestine.20-25

Unlike other forms of pine bark extract, Pycnogenol® is a superior patented and standardized ingredient that has undergone extensive human clinical research to substantiate its numerous anti-aging properties.
