Pine Bark Extract

The bark of the European coastal pine, Pinus maritima, is a rich source of excellent antioxidants called ‘OPCs’ (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) and ‘catechins’. These bioflavonoids are receiving intense study because their ability to reduce free radical damage makes them promising agents for preventing cancer, cardiovascular disease and various chronic diseases of aging.

The impressive list of effects shown or implied by recent studies of OPCs and catechins includes:

  • Greater protection against free radicals and DNA damage than is provided by vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene;
  • Selective toxicity to human breast-, lung-, and gastric-cancer cells;
  • Protection against drug-induced liver and kidney damage, tobacco-induced DNA damage, UV-induced skin damage, and chemotherapy-induced toxicity;
  • Prevention of heart damage from oxygen deprivation; strengthening blood vessels, repairing varicose veins, reducing leg edema, enhancing microcirculation;
  • Stimulation of collagen synthesis, protection and restoration of damaged membranes and connective tissue, including the blood-brain barrier;
  • prevention, amelioration, or reversal of chronic pancreatitis, asthma, lupus, diabetic retinopathy, and deep vein blood clots.
