Pycnogenol tablets (pic-noj-en-all) is a natural supplement which offers a range of extensive and proven health benefits, one of which is combating allergies. An extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree, Pycnogenol has been widely studied for the past 40 years and is viewed as one of the most safe, evidence-based health ingredients in the world.
How do Pycnogenol tablets work?
In everyday life our body generates 'free radicals', especially when exposed to stress, pollutants or toxins. These chemically unbalanced radicals damage cells by oxidising them, the same way metal becomes rusty. Scientists now believe free radicals are a major cause of ageing and many degenerative diseases. Pycnogenol tablets work within the body to mop up these aggressive free radicals before they cause damage.
How can Pycnogenol help allergy sufferers?
One in three people suffer from allergies. Allergies are caused when the body mistakes allergens, such as pollen, dust and animal hair, as harmful. When this happens the body releases histamine, which triggers symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, coughing, wheezing and itching. Studies show Pycnogenol inhibits the release of histamine when allergens are present.
Thirty-five year old Marie Robson suffered with hay fever before discovering Pycnogenol:
I never like having to use medication all the time, but for many years my inhaler and antihistamines were the only effective solution to my hayfever. I started taking two Pycnogenol tablets twice per day, and when I could feel it working I dropped down to two per day. After a few weeks I noticed I was leaving my inhaler behind more often, and the same with antihistamines. I was even able to have a summer wedding thanks to Bio-Pycnogenol!
