About French Maritime Pine Bark Extract

What is Maritime Pine Bark Extract?

Extract of maritime pine bark contains a flavonoid known as oligomeric proanthocyanidin (OPC). This type of flavonoid also occurs naturally in certain plants and fruits such as cranberries, blackcurrants and bilberries as well as in the seed and skin of grapes and in green and black tea. However, for supplement purposes, the OPCs present in maritime pine bark contain a certain molecular structure which makes for a highly effective antioxidant.

How is it extracted?

Maritime pine trees have an abundance of OPCs within their bark which makes them an ideal source for the harvesting and extraction of this powerful antioxidant. The process is achieved by soaking the bark in warm water then pressing the pulp which literally squeezes the extract from the bark.

How Does Pine Bark Extract Help with Health Issues?

Why Do We Need Antioxidants?

Our body is constantly attacked by atoms known as oxidants (or free radicals) which are unpaired electrons. These atoms are on a mission to find another electron to pair up with and in doing so they frantically bump and crash into other atoms, causing damage. The destructive behaviour of free radicals can cause otherwise healthy cells to malfunction or die, which results in a weakened immune system, leading to poor health and leaving us vulnerable to illness and disease.
Free radicals are caused by pollution and by over-exposure to ultra violet radiation. Pollution comes in many guises; such things as fluoride in tap water, eating deep fried foods cooked in rancid oil and breathing smoke and fumes. Insufficient exercise also causes free radicals to flood our bodies and it’s often the case that following a particularly stressful time we tend to fall prey to viruses such as the common cold. This is because stress can allow free radicals to get the upper hand, causing our immune system to take a nose dive.
Antioxidants are our greatest allies. They protect us from the onslaught of free radical damage which our cells need to fight every day of our lives. They protect us from constant vulnerability to illness and without them our bodies couldn’t withstand the attack caused by environmental toxins and for some, bad food choices.
Health organisations and government guidelines recommend we eat five portions of fruit and vegetables each day and these directives carry a strong message. But the fact is, five a day is the absolute minimum needed to give ourselves a fighting chance of continued good health. The reason we need to eat fruit and vegetables is because they contain those vital antioxidants. Brightly coloured and black-skinned berries and the dark green leaves of vegetables such as kale, broccoli and spring cabbage are particularly effective. These are known as ‘super foods’ as they give us higher levels of antioxidant protection.

    Vastly improved immune system

    Posted by Susan Wilson on 22nd Oct 2018

    Two years ago I had a very poor immune system and had one infection after another after being quite ill. I use Supplement Place's French Maritime Pine Bark Extract and their Trans Resveratrol, and my health has improved vastly. I don't intend to stop taking these supplements and recommend Supplement Place and their products to anyone who needs to improve their health.

    Pine Bark Extract

    Posted by Dave on 13th Oct 2018

    Was reassured some years ago that this product is as genuine as Pycnogenol but cant use that name as it is copyright. I have been using this for 14 years to fight diabetic retinopathy and do feel that it has aided in m still having my eyesight. Worth looking into. Other minor skin complaints and blocked node have also totally cleared up. my wife has started taking it as well for dry eyes and foot rot of some sort.
    In my opinion its worth a go and you wont find a better price for strength. - Dave

    Prompt delivery, and packaged well. Good service all round. Bit early to comment on effectiveness of Pine Bark, only been taking a short while. Hence the four stars, otherwise it would be a five.

    I can't think of any thing that I haven't already alluded to in my review.

    Definitely makes a difference

    Posted by E on 24th Apr 2018

    My husband and I have taken this supplement for the last 2 months, after reading about it in a health magazine. We take a few other supplements as well. We ran out of these about 3 weeks ago and have noticed a definite decline in well being. I can only assume that it is the pine bark that makes the difference to our energy levels and general well being. We are both crazy busy all the time with stressful jobs, a busy social life and we go to the gym 2-3 times a week. I have ordered more on the strength of my experience! Take care when ordering: you may find a cheaper product, but check the strength you are buying.
