– The maritime pine or Pinus pinaster is a hardwood pine tree that grows in regions surrounding the Mediterranean. For centuries, cultures in northern Africa have used the bark of the tree as an herbal remedy for a variety of medical conditions. In the United States, this natural extract is found in a supplement called Pycnogenol®. While science is still evaluating the benefits of supplementation with the extract, many in the medical community believe the herb can contribute to a healthier, more comfortable lifestyle for certain individuals.
Seasonal allergies affect millions and result in symptoms like itching eyes, nasal congestion and sneezing. Some scientists believe that by taking Pycnogenol before allergy season begins, those prone to such symptoms may experience less discomfort. In a clinical trial of 39 individuals conducted at KGK Synergize Inc. in London, Ontario, daily use of a Pycnogenol supplement beginning 5 to 8 weeks before allergy symptoms demonstrated a 35 percent reduction in eye-related allergy symptoms and a 20 percent reduction in nasal symptoms compared to those who did not take the supplement.
