Pycnogenol

You've perhaps seen or heard of the antioxidant pycnogenol, but maybe you never tried it. The substance is derived from the bark of French pine trees. Ir was discovered in the 1800s when explorers were on the verge of death in North America and were given some pine bark by the Indians. Miraculously they all survived. Later it was found that the pine bark has a phytonutrient substance that amazingly makes vitamin C about a thousand times more long-lasting. In other words pycnogenol boosts the power of vitamin C. Another neat thing about pycnogenol is that it tastes minty and tangy and a bit like a pine forest. The antioxidant pycnogenol is highly recommended by most health care savvy practitioners, and also by none other than Lester Packer, the head of the Packer Lab at U Berkeley, and author of The Antioxidant Miracle. I put a lot of faith in what Packer says.
