Pycnogenol® is a patented form of Pine Bark Extract which is standardized to 70% Procyanidin compounds, which is the active ingredient responsible for Pycnogenol's® benefits. Pycnogenol® is one of the most heavily researched dietary supplements available, with over 135 clinical studies attesting to its many benefits.
Research on Pycnogenol® has shown it to provide a myriad of health benefits including improvements in skin health, circulation, eye health, joint care, cognitive acuity, and respiratory health.
The recommended dosage of Pycogneol is 100 – 200 mg, taken in the morning with breakfast. If taking 200 mg, some people have had good results taking 100 mg in the morning with breakfast and taking another 100 mg in the afternoon with lunch. It’s not recommended to take more than 400 mg per day.
Pycnogenol® is well tolerated and side effects are rare at recommended doses. The most commonly reported side effects are dizziness, gastrointestinal issues, headaches, and mouth ulcers. Side effects are more common when the recommended dosage is exceeded.
Pycnogenol® should not be used if you’re suffering from an autoimmune disease such as MS or lupus, as evidence suggests Pycnogenol's® ability to enhance the immune system may increase symptoms in those suffering from autouimmune diseases.
Pycnogenol® may slow blood clotting, and so should not be used by those taking anticoagulant drugs or within 2 weeks of a scheduled surgery.
