Nontoxicity and Recommended Dosage
Pycnogenol can be used safely and effectively in conjunction with other antioxidants such as vitamin C, E, and A (betacarotene) plus the minerals zinc, selenium, and manganese with the addition of CoEnzyme Q10. In combination this way, the pine bark extract acts to sharply reduce the effects of free radical damage associated with acute and chronic inflammations, senility in aging, improper function of the circulatory system, nervous disorders of most types, and immune system suppression.
Being very potent as an antioxidant, Pycnogenol works most effectively for a person when taken daily to prevent the onset of free radical-induced disorders and their symptoms. Another noted professor of cell biology at the Finnish University of Hyvaskyla, Antti Holevi Arstila, M.D., states that Pycnogenol taken as a food supplement is useful for the treatment of cancer, arthritis, cataracts, macular degeneration, asthma, Parkinson's disease, and other degenerative diseases.
Our Pycnogenol is manufactured and sold in tablets of 30 mg. each with 1 - 2 tablets per day considered a maintenance dosage. In order to saturate the tissues when self-treatment is administered, the dosage changes to one tablet for each twenty pounds of body weight, taken daily for three days. Thereafter tissue saturation should be followed with the maintenance dose of two tablets daily.
In summary, the product, although a food supplement, has definite therapeutic qualities for the normalization of cellular tissues. The following are effects on body and mind one could hope to achieve by supplementing:
