Free radicals are naturally occurring, unstable chemical substances that react easily with components of the cell to cause cellular damage. Free radicals are produced during metabolic processes, such as energy production, when they become inefficient. They can also come form outside sources which are ingested such as from pesticides in food and pollution in the environment.
Antioxidants help to counteract the oxidation reaction that free radicals cause and neutralize their effects. Naturally occurring antioxidants include Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and beta carotene. They may play a significant role in fighting cancer, heart disease, immunity disorders and aging. Minerals like sulfur, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc also play key roles, as do electrons in our air and water.
Pycnogenol belongs to a group of bioflavonoids called proanthocyanidins which have been shown to have fifty times more antioxidant activity than Vitamin E and twenty times more than Vitamin C. Pycnogenol has been proven effective in repair of damaged capillaries, prevention of varicose veins and high blood pressure, skin smoothness and elasticity, improvement of joint flexibility, sluggish memory and more!

This esterified form of Vitamin C is pH balanced, twice as absorbable as ascorbic acid, able to reach levels four times higher within the cells and is high in Bioflavonoids and synergistic minerals. This form is also retained in the body twice as long as regular Vitamin C.
