I have hereditary hypersensitivity to a number of substances which I cannot detoxify. PAHs, for instance. Recently reacted to benzene(car fuel fumes that often leak at petrol stations). In order to prevent fumes damage to the hypothalamus by inhaling through nose, I breathed through my mouth, and developed burning lung pain, allergic cough and fever the next day). There is a product called ChemDefense that helps detoxify the offending substances. Also, pycnogenol is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the damage. It calms down the exaggerated immune reaction and it repairs the oxidative damage to the endothelium. Before I knew what these reactions were or that pycnogenol might help, I useed to be sick for months. Now I can shorten both the reaction and the recovery time.

But I accidentally clicked on the stars and couldn't get out of this review page so I'm giving a neutral 3 stars. iHerb, of course, shipped quickly and I'm glad they make it so easy to try different supplements.

I noticed that Dr. Perricone's main ingredient in his pigment supplement is pycnogenol. These are much more affordable. I can't say for sure if I'm seeing results, but I've been taking them for less than a month so I'll need to give it more time. It can't hurt, since it is a potent antioxidant.

Viens no plašāk pazīstamajiem dabīgajiem augu polifenolu kompleksiem ir piknogenols. Piknogenols ir standartizēts Vidusjūras priežu (Pinus maritima) mizas ekstrakts, kam piemīt izteiktas antioksidanta īpašības, kas galvenokārt balstās uz fenola savienojumu (katehīnu, epikatehīnu, taksifolīnu) un flavonoīdu (procianidīnu) aktivitāti. Vairāki klīniskie pētījumi rāda, ka piknogenolam ir pozitīva ietekme uz sirds un asinsvadu sistēmu, pateicoties tā antioksidatīvajām un pretiekaisuma īpašībām un spējai pozitīvi ietekmēt organisma lipīdu profilu . Zinātniskie pētījumi pierāda, ka piknogenols samazina trombocītu agregāciju, samazina ZBL līmeni un palielina ABL līmeni , samazina hipertensiju un uzlabo 2. tipa diabēta kontroli, jo tas samazina glikozes līmeni asinīs .

Take Pycnogenol as a antioxidant. I can feel the difference on my skin after taking one bottle. For me, Pycnogenol works better than Resveratrol. Please also visit my page for more reviews, especially for new customers to iHerb.

I have taken a similar brand of Pycnogenol for a number of years and feel that it is important for my overall health!

Cleared my skin up in less than 24 hours. Also good for antidepressant induced s*xual problems. Highly recommended.
