Pycnogenol Saved My Life – A Review of Pycnogenol

Pycnogenol Saved My Life – A Review of Pycnogenol

It’s hard to believe that with all the health benefits pycnogenol provides that only 1 out of 7 people in the medical profession knows about it. The pycnogenol I use is the official pycnogenol product provided by the Horphag company in combination with a vegetable delivery system. Although the Horphag company claims that pycnogenol works as well without the delivery system, I know it is not true from personal experience. That statement is not to say that pycnogenol by itself doesn’t work, because it truly does. You just have to use a larger amount.

Pycnogenol is an extract from the bark of the Maritime Pine tree which is the common tree used for timber in France. If you are ‘allergic’ to pine then you cannot use the product. It is the most powerful antioxidant found in the plant world.

The product I use contains 20 milligrams per tablet and the ideal usage is one milligram per one pound of body weight. You can use a larger quantity if you wish without harm and if you have a serious illness it could be of great benefit. One caution, however, your body has been going downhill for a long time and unless you are already using a good nutritional supplementation program, it is likely you will go through a ‘healing’ crisis if you begin using this powerful antioxidant at the recommended level. For that reason, I recommend the average person start slowly and build up to the recommended amount.

The healing crisis can be quite painful and could cause you to think pycnogenol is harming you. What is really happening is that this powerful antioxidant is cleansing your body of toxins. It might take a couple of days or a couple of weeks to fully cleanse your system. If you will stick with the recommended usage for a minimum of 3 months you will definitely see improvement. Some people get immediate relief, but most people will not notice significant improvement for a while. For that reason you should keep a comprehensive diary.

In this brief synopsis, I am going to only tell you one real personal story, but in subsequent articles I’ll tell many more. When I was 58, my life fell apart and I am fully convinced I would have died if a friend had not introduced me to pycnogenol. Arthritis was quickly immobilizing me. My right shoulder was almost frozen in pain, my lower back was in constant severe pain, a knuckle in my right index finger was filled with arthritis and could not bend. In addition, I had developed infections throughout my body. Medications would knock an infection out but it would return in a week or so.

I started on pycnogenol at the full recommended usage without experiencing the disconcerting cleansing effect. I was in so much pain that it wouldn’t have been noticed. Within a month my infections were gone. In 3 months I was pain-free as I remain today at age 73.
