What is Pycnogenol?

  • Suitable for Vegans
  • Gelatin Free
Pycnogenol is a unique bioflavonoid extract derived from the bark of the French maritime pine. On a chemical basis, Pycnogenol is comprised of a variety of fruit acids such as catechin, taxifolin and procyanidins.

Each Healthspan Pycnogenol tablet contains 30mg of pine bark extract, derived from trees grown in the expansive natural forest of Les Landes in south-west France. These trees have been cultivated over a period of 30-50 years without the use of herbicides or pesticides.

Each tablet has been standardised to provide 95% of the active compounds, bioflavonoids and fruit acids, believed to be responsible for the beneficial actions of Pycnogenol.

Pycnogenol has been subject to many scientific studies; a comprehensive list of these may be found at: www.pycnogenol.com
