Pycnogenol® is an extract from the bark of the Maritime Pine and is rich in proanthocyanidins, a sub-group of the flavonoid family of plant compounds. Our prehistoric diet would have provided significant quantities of these PCO’s as they are present in dark skinned fruit, berries and seeds. Extensive research has identified that PCO’s are extremely active in the body, and the manufacturers of Pycnogenol® have classified the activity in to four basic properties – it’s a powerful antioxidant, acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, selectively binds to collagen and elastin, and finally, it aids in the production of endothelial nitric oxide which helps to dilate blood vessels.
Lamberts® interest in Pycnogeno®l principally concerns it’s ability to protect and rebuild our body’s collagen, as this gives practitioners a tool to tackle conditions linked to poor quality collagen, the structural protein that gives our skin it’s elasticity and blood vessels their strength.
We are confident that Pycnogenol® is as effective as the manufacturers claim, however many of the studies were conducted at dose levels that would be hard to achieve for patients on limited budgets. This is one reason why Lamberts® has developed Colladeen®, a high potency anthocyanadin supplement.
