Sometimes the best discoveries come from the most unexpected places. This is the case with the beneficial effects of pine bark as its therapeutic properties were first recorded by the explorer Jacques Cartier to remedy the symptoms of scurvy. Maritime Pine Bark Extract, the generic name for the very well-known product Pycnogenol, is a very powerful anti-oxidant: 50 times more potent than Vitamin C or E. The main active ingredient in Maritime Pine Bark is proanthocyanidins, a powerful class of antioxidants.
