At Pharma Nord we receive dozens of letters from customers who have benefited from the use of our vitamin supplements. Pycnogenol is a truly fascinating nutrient, derived from the bark of French Maritime Pine trees. It's been used in traditional remedies for centuries and now has been proven effective in more than 7000 individuals across many clinical trials. Pycnogenol is a powerful blend of antioxidant compounds including procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids. These compounds are commonly found in fruit, vegetables and plants (such as pine tree bark). The Journal of Inflammation also published a study demonstrating the effectiveness of Pycnogenol in reducing harmful inflammation in the body. Inflammation can be a result of allergies, asthma, arthritis, stress or wound infections. Morag Fowler of Dunoon, Argyll, wrote to us to sing the praises of Bio-Pycnogenol, specifically with regard to asthma. Her letter is transcribed below exactly as written, with Morag's kind permission (these are her words, not ours, and not everyone may experience the same effects): "Dear Sirs, I have been delighted with the result of taking Bio-Pycnogenol. My GP put me onto a new steroid inhaler and I needed to use my reliever inhaler several times a day. I started to take Bio-Pycnogenol after reading about the effect in can have on asthma. After that I seldom needed to use the reliever inhaler. I took a copy of research on Bio-Pycnogenol to my GP. He read it and was happy for me to use the Bio-Pycnogenol. It has transformed my life and I keep recommending it to other asthmatics. I would be happy for you to use my case story in your publicity if you think it useful. Yours faithfully, Morag Fowler."
