Antioxidants & Healthy Aging
ELIXIR Pycnogenol® is a natural plant product made from the bark of European coastal pine. It contains over 40 water-soluble plant compounds, composed primarily of proanthocyanidins.
Proanthocyanidins are an extremely potent subclass of antioxidant flavonoids.
- Pycnogenol is the trademark name of a potent antioxidant (free radical scavenger) that is extracted from the bark of a specific variety of pine that grows in Southern France.
- As determined by the Porter Method, which is the most accurate methodology available to specifically quantify proanthocyanidin content, Pycnogenol yields: 65% Proanthocyanidins 17% Organic acids, organic acid glucosides and glucose esters 15% Catechin and epicatechin (monomers) 3% Water. Although not technically correct, classifying all phenolic components as proanthocyanosides would yield 97% proanthocyanosides
- CONTAINS NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives; no wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, crustacean shellfish or fish. Suitable for vegans
