Sanjevani Pycnogenol ®supplies the patented Pycnogenol®, a premium French maritime pine bark extract from the European coastal pine, Pinus maritima. It contains a unique combination of natural compounds including procyanidins, bioflavonoids, and organic acids that support capillary and connective tissue function and provide antioxidant protection to cells and tissues.
Sanjevani Pycnogenol® is a potent scavenger of free radicals involved in inflammatory processes and supports elasticity and integrity of collagen in joints, capillaries, blood vessels, and skin.†
Note: Sanjevani Pycnogenol only uses the patented form of the French maritime pine bark, not the generic forms, to ensure clinical benefits and safety.
Sanjevani Pycnogenol provide the following benefits:
• Free radical scavenger: Free radicals are thought to be a cause of oxidative cell damage associated with aging and many degenerative diseases. Sanjevani Pycnogenol® protects against oxidation by chemically neutralizing these potentially harmful molecules, enabling the body to better heal and support itself against molecular and cellular damage.†
• Supports vascular function: Natural substances called proanthocyanidins present in Sanjevani Pycnogenol® provide antioxidant activity that helps maintain a healthy capillary system by several means. They help preserve activity of vitamin C, necessary for the production of collagen, and also bind to collagen fibers, guarding them from attack by free radicals and helping maintain the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other tissues. Sanjevani Pycnogenol® also modulates vascular nitric oxide levels and helps regulate platelet function, thus contributing to normal circulatory function and blood clotting mechanisms.†
• Recycles vitamins C and E: Sanjevani Pycnogenol® is a highly bioavailable antioxidant and one of the most potent natural scavengers of potentially damaging free radicals. When taken in combination with vitamins C and E, such as in Sanjevani Multivitamins, Sanjevani Pycnogenol® extends their action as it facilitates vitamin C regeneration and protects vitamin E from oxidation.†
• Supports skin health: Substances in Sanjevani Pycnogenol® act as collagen stabilizers by binding to collagen and elastin in the skin, protecting them from degradation. Healthy collagen is important for maintaining elasticity and helping to keep skin firm and smooth. Sanjevani Pycnogenol® may also improve microcirculation of skin capillaries to support better oxygen and nutrient supply and tissue hydration. By helping to inhibit the release of pro-inflammatory mediators and activation of immune cells, it may help protect skin from photo-aging.†
