How Pine Bark Extract Could Help With Inflammation
Almost all of us walk by pine trees daily and rarely stop to think about how this species of tree could change our lives.
But that’s what’s so cool about nature...almost everything we use to improve our lives comes from the natural world around us.
Incidentally, the pine tree is one of those parts of nature that provides significant benefit to us.
And what we’re about to show you is all about how a certain species of pine tree is able to help the human species effectively deal with the potential damage that inflammation poses to us.
We’re getting into these details because we have a supplement called “Inflammation Syn3rgy” that utilizes a certain kind of pine bark extract (along with 2 other ingredients) to help knock inflammation dead.
Pretty easy to understand… just like it’s pretty easy to see how pine bark from a special pine tree can help support inflammatory response.
How Bark From the French Maritime Pine Tree Can Possibly Help You
Chances are you don’t live in France, but if you did, you’d have ready access to the French Maritime Tree which is significant because the bark of this tree contains an incredible compound known as proanthocyanidins.
Proanthocyanidins have been demonstrated in several studies to offer some benefit in helping affected cells deal with the damaging effects of free radicals.
And if you want to support your body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of inflammation then this is what you want.
The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital shows that pine bark extract works well: “in vitro and animal studies suggest that pine bark extract has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunostimulant, cardioprotective, and neuroprotective effects. It may also have antimicrobial activities.”
But that’s not all it has going for it…
As Healthline writes, pine bark also has these compounds in it too, and they’re responsible for supporting inflammatory response.
- “Procyanidins. A type of flavonoid that acts as an antioxidant and appears to have medicine-like properties. All Pycnogenol maritime pine bark extract is standardized to contain at least 75% procyanidins.
- Another antioxidant-like flavonoid family that protects cells from oxidation and damaging free radicals.
- Phenolic acids. A group of polyphenols that exhibit high antioxidant activity and are commonly found in plant foods”
There have been more than 100 studies on pine bark and the vast majority of them show that this extract and the compounds in it are some of the more effective at controlling inflammation response.
This is exactly why we teamed it up with 2 of the other ingredients in “Inflammation Syn3rgy” so that the overwhelming effect of these ingredients is some of the best inflammation control you can find in a pill.
We hope you see the value in these ingredients.
