Barking orders

By now, you know how I feel about Pycnogenol ®. Simply put, everyone everywhere should be taking it. The powers of this antioxidant-packed pine bark extract have been the subject of tons of research. And its benefits are undeniable.

They’re wide-reaching, too. Circulation, blood sugar, bad skin, menopause symptoms… you name it, Pycnogenol can probably help keep things healthy. And new research shows you can add respiratory health to that list, too.

As part of a recent study, Italian scientists split 76 subjects into two groups. One group took 100 mg of Pycnogenol daily. The other group acted as the control.

After six months, the researchers found that 55 percent of subjects taking Pycnogenol had improved respiratory health. That’s compared with only 6 percent in the control group.

The bottom line? Take your Pycnogenol–at least 50 to 100 mg–every day. You’ll breathe easier for it, in more ways than one.
