Description
PYCNOGENOL® AND GRAPE SEED EXTRACT is a potent combination of two powerful natural antioxidants — Pycnogenol®, extracted from French maritime pine bark (Pinus maritimus), and Proanthodyn™, extracted from grape seeds (Vitis vinifera). Both compounds are rich in proanthocyanidins, a special class of water-soluble bioflavonoids which are excellent free radical scavengers. Proanthocyanidins are believed to play an important role in maintaining good health.

Health Notes

Proanthocyanidins

Proanthocyanidins
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
