We are hearing more and more about the damage ‘free radicals’ do to our bodies. It is believed that a number of degenerative diseases are caused by free radical damage. Free radicals are formed from normal processes within the body as well as from polluted air, tobacco smoke, excess sunlight. The body has built-in mechanisms to defend itself against ‘free radical attack’. Unfortunately, in many instances, this defence system loses its effectiveness as it becomes overwhelmed by the amount of free radicals that it is exposed to.
Antioxidants are important to the diet because they are able to neutralize free radicals. Pycnogenol is made up of a group of substances called bioflavonoids. Studies have shown that as an antioxidant, Pycnogel is 20 times more effective than vitamin C and 50 times more potent than vitamin E, and has the highest concentration of proanthocyanidins.
Pynogenol is instantly absorbed into the bloodstream and remains in the body for 72 hours not only fighting the radicals but also aiding in the restoration of the body's natural bonding agent - collagen
"Pycnogenol hunts down and neutralises free oxygen radicals in nanoseconds whenever these nafarious oxygen molecules appear. cells thus protected regain their regenerative power and slow down the aging process." - Sr Peter Rohdewald
Pycnogenol Herbal Plus creates a new standard for the fight against Free Radicals and other attacks against the immune system.
Pycnogenol Herbal Plus is also further enhanced with the addition of the respected herb - Cat's Claw and other powerful complementary ingredients:
Cat’s Claw is an exciting herb that comes from the woody vine of Uncaria tomentosa. You can find vine in the Peruvian Rainforest, where it grows to lengths of more than 100 feet. For hundreds of years the native Indian tribes have used this vine and its roots in their medicinal practices.
Cat’s Claw is an effective antioxidant – six alkaloids have been isolated. It also has a natural ability to cleanse and detoxify the digestive system and in so doing helps the body’s natural absorption processes.
Curcuminoids are the active extracts from the plant called Curcuma longa (commonly called Turmeric). It is a close relative of Ginger and those of you who like cooking are probably familiar with Turmeric powder which imparts a bright yellow colour to the food with it is mixed.
The curcuminoids in Pycnogenol Herbal Plus are a standardized powdered extract which contains concentrations of 3 curcuminoids – Curcumin, Bisdemethoxy curcumin and Demethoxy curcumin. These curcuminoids have a protective, antioxidant effect which make them a perfect choice to include in this unique antioxidant formulation, ‘Pycnogenol Herbal Plus’.
For generations, we have been told to eat ‘coloured’ fruits and vegetables. The pigments that give food the colour are nutritionally valuable nutrients called carotenoids. Carotenoids have been found to be important anti-oxidants. Beta-carotene is probably the best known carotenoid,but there are a number of other which are just as important in their own right. Most people are probably not getting enough carotenoid in their diet because in our modern societies generally, we aren’t eating enough fruits an vegetables.
Taking a supplement containing natural mixed carotenoids may be beneficial in achieving a healthy diet. The mixed Carotenoids are extracted from Dunaliella salina algae which is considered the preferred source of natural mixed carotenoids. It provides the most diverse selection of natural carotenoids available for nutritional supplements.
