I have been using this product since 3 months, together with Glucosamine Chodrontonit, I did not believe in the effects mentioned by other review. One long weekend, I forgot to take the Pycnogenol along, so I did not take it during 3 days. Upon return, I went to the (new) fitness, the instructor measured my blood pressure, it was 170/90. He was alarmous and sent me immediately to a medical check-up (3 days after). In the meantime, I have taken back 1 pill of Pycnogenol per day and my blood pressure came back normally to 120/80. The doctor did not prescribe any medication and the fitness instructor is very surprised. It has also happened another time, and now I believe that the pycnogenol has helped me very much in stabilising the blood pressure and certainly it has given a good combination benefit with Glucosamine/Chodrontonit. I don't have any pain in shoulders and knies, which I have had some kind of. I have taken 1 per day and that's enough. Amazing product!
I've been using 2 softgels per day... and I know that a serving is 4 softgels. It's already a lot if I take it together with other vitamines and supplements (Coenzyme Q10 and glucosamine). So many pills to swallow in the morning, then one does not remember to do again at midday. It would be more practical to have more concentrated softgels. I know that I don't have enought the quantity recommeneded (2softgels= 2gr) while a cafe spoon has already 6 gr, I try to take the oil from raw oil during the weekend at home, together with hot coffee. Each softgel is quite big, to swallow is OK but probably not convenient to everyboddy. It's practical to have it packed along, in the office, to travel, etc... Good quality and price.
I take 1 in the evening and I sleep very well. Probably, it helps also to dismiss all pains due to exercises, etc...Very good price/quality ! There is no side effect. It's difficult to find for this product, so buy it whenever you buy other things at iherb.
This supplement suits me, 50+, Vegan. Only one inconvenience is 2 caps to take each time, while I'm looking for a supplement 1 cap per serving. Imagine if you have to take supplements every day, this one plus other one, finally there are too many caps to swallow. But this product fullfills the promise, I feel energetic and no aging problem comparing to 10 years ago.
Good herb tea with a pleasant taste... suitable for the whole family, whether with or without problem with liver, gallblader, ... It makes you relax and slightly detox. I bought it with special price, otherwise it's a bit pricy.
I use this very seldom, when I have no other alternative. I feel it effective. Use it with moderation anyway!
I've been using it since a month. Nothing special than a normal cream for throat and eye, but no allergy, no negative reaction.
It's healthy, tasty, but very little.
If you believe in the benefits of the super fruits, this softjel is a good way to have a mixture of the 4 super fruits with good quality. I have been using 1 softgel in the morning together with grapefuit juice since few months. I feel some improvements in skin, hair and blood pressure. It's not a miracle, you have to help yourself as well: eat right, exercise more and keep thinking positive.
I'm not disappointed with the product, after reading all the good review. Indeed the product is versatile for many usage and seems very pure. It gives more smoke than other oils when cooking. Eating raw (with heat meals) is fine. Health benefits I don't know yet, but now, it's very pleasant to use it.
