Bank on these Spring favourites
It’s Bank Holiday Weekend which can only mean one thing: constant rain!
Crossing our fingers for better times ahead, though, we’ve got two supplements that are perfect for this time of year.
Bio-Pycnogenol is ideal for helping you get out and about while Bio-Magnesium – the ‘relaxing mineral’ is great for winding down.
Nature’s most versatile supplement
Pycnogenol (pronounced ‘pic-noj-en-al’) is extracted from the bark of pine trees grown exclusively in Les Landes de Gascogne, an unspoiled and sustainable forest in south-west France.
Pycnogenol is made by extracting the outer bark of the pine and it naturally contains a wide range of plant compounds with beneficial properties.
The wide-range of compounds in Pycnogenol are responsible for a number of health benefits including protecting our cells from oxidative stress and damage and contributing to healthy blood circulation throughout the body.

A natural supplement extracted from pine bark
Not only is Pharma Nord’s Bio-Pycnogenol made to pharmaceutical standards and blister packed to keep it fresh, it is also great value for money – a price comparison study identified Bio-Pycnogenol as offering the most mg of Pycnogenol per penny.
The relaxing mineral
Needed in over 600 enzymes within the body, magnesium is truly the body's workhorse.
A body that lacks magnesium may struggle to work, as muscle function, bones, teeth and energy production all depend on the mineral.
Helping you work, rest and play is no mean feat, but the problem with magnesium is that many of us simply don’t get enough of it for optimum health - according to the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey, a “substantial proportion” of adults aged 19 years and over don’t get enough magnesium in their diets.
Getting enough magnesium from food can be tricky as intakes have decreased in the past few decades due mainly to a change of dietary habits and agriculture. Processed foods are also typically low in magnesium. This is why many people look to a magnesium supplement to help.
Bio-Magnesium from Pharma Nord is a careful blend of three different types of magnesium which is designed to be gentle on the stomach and easy to absorb.
In fact, it’s so easy to absorb that it dissolves in a glass of water in seconds!
