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 bodys natural defenses against five 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.
DNA function: Pycnogenol helps support normal DNA function through antioxidant activity and possibly other mechanisms.
Easing inflammation: Pycnogenol helps ease inflammation by normal modulation of inflammatory cytokine molecules. Oxidative stress: Pycnogenol supports the normal functioning of healthy antioxidant systems to help suppress free radicals and protect DNA. 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.
