Fields of Application
Pycnogenol, the active ingredient of Flavogard has a protective role in a number of diseases/disorders:
- asthma : improved breathing capacity as well as a significant reduction in concentrations of the leukotrienes responsible for inflammatory conditions
- lupus : significant decrease in levels of auto-immune antibodies and reduction in over-reaction of immune cells
- diabetic retinopathy : five studies involving more than 1000 patients showed that Pycnogenol® repaired permeable capillaries. Progressive deterioration of vision ceased and in some cases, visual acuity improved.
- hyperlipidemia: 20% decrease in LDL cholesterol and 15% increase in HDL after 3 months’ daily supplementation with 120 mg Pycnogenol®
- hyperpigmentation: in a clinical trial of 30 women with this condition, Pycnogenol® supplementation at 75mg/day significantly lightened their excess skin pigmentation
- hypertension : systolic blood pressure was significantly reduced by Pycnogenol® supplementation
- menstrual pain : women suffering very painful periods were given 30-60mg Pycnogenol® a day for a month, starting 1 week before their period. The majority experienced a significant reduction in cramps.
- circulation problems : Pycnogenol® increases production of nitric oxide and inhibits constriction of the arteries induced by stress hormones. Pycnogenol® improves circulation in elderly individuals. It inhibits superoxide radical in blood flow, helping to maintain a healthy circulatory system, and protects blood vessel walls. The most significant improvements are in peripheral microcirculation (hands, feet, legs and eyes).
- risk of myocardial infarct and heart attack : Pycnogenol® normalizes platelet activity which is responsible for the development of blood clots following vascular damage, but unlike aspirin, does not affect coagulation in wounds.
- sports endurance : intense physical activity increases free radical production in the body by 10-20%. Pycnogenol® counters these harmful effects and improves circulation, encouraging an optimal supply of nutrients and oxygen, and helping the body achieve continuous optimal performance. Athletes receiving pycnogenol® showed a 21% improvement in endurance in a controlled treadmill test.
- internal cosmetic and skin ageing : the constituents of Pycnogenol® have a particular affinity for collagen and elastin which help prevent their destruction by lytic enzymes and free radicals and maintain smooth, firm skin. Pycnogenol® supplementation protects against sunburn: when 21 healthy volunteers were supplemented with Pycnogenol®, it took double the strength of UV radiation before erythema (redness) appeared.
- venous insufficiency : 15 clinical studies involving over 500 patients showed that Pycnogenol® reduces oedema, pain and other symptoms associated with vein problems. These studies were conducted with doses ranging from 30 to 360 mg a day: the highest doses were, in some cases, effective after just five days’ treatment and lower doses were used over several months. It is therefore recommended to take a higher dose at the start of treatment, reducing the dose once the problem has eased
