Anti-aging products, treatments and services flood the worldwide marketplace every day. From topical treatments to supplements, millions around the world seek a ‘youthful boost’. One supplement getting a lot of attention this year is Pycnogenol. Even Dr. Oz is talking about Pycnogenol.
Speaking with MaxNewsHealth, Dr. Steven Lamm, M.D. confirmed that Pycnogenol is a very strong antioxidant, meaning it counteracts a bodily process much like internal rusting in a machine, which accelerates aging and predisposes us to all manner of deterioration. “We have yet to discover all of its properties,” says Dr. Lamm, “But we do know it functions in the body to reduce inflammation, enhance blood flow, reduce clotting, has a positive effect on your lipids – cholesterol and triglycerides – and blood pressure.”
Studies have also found that Pycnogenol helps to keep blood sugar stable, reduces harmful blood clotting, improves memory, asthma and allergies, arthritis pain, a host of female hormonal issues, blood pressure, varicose veins, and ADHD.
If you’re a fan of anti-aging supplements and treatments, this one sounds interesting and may be worth a closer look and discussion with your doctor.
