Back in August 1995 I and a friend attended a lecture on Pycnogenol, as it was just arriving in the U.S. from France where it was found some 50 yrs ago. I've been committed to alternative healing for probably 25 yrs....and this lecture was right up my alley.
What got me the MOST was that we were told it "may" prevent cancer....this was from a panel of researchers and a couple alternative doctors. This hooked me. So I bought my first bottle in Sept 1995 and stayed with Pycnogenol for the whole year.....
After the year I found Grape Seed Extract and it was less $$ and does the same work.
The first thing TO GO were my lifelong allergy and sinus issues, that's a whole other story....saga is more like it...
I have NOT taken a drug for allergies and sinus issues for 19 yrs....
Other benefits I see/feel:
Good eyesight, I have NOT gone for an eye check up in over 5 yrs....I figure WHY, things have not changed and I see good with use old long time eyeglasses for reading/computer and distance....
Gums are so improved, prior to Pycnogenol I was told I had deep pockets and needed deeper work, I haven't heard this comment in years.
Freckels and moles and liver spots are all lighter....and I did a lifetime of sun and came in from sun at 53 or so, that is when I now believe Vit D started to decline.
I don't get colds or flu and have NOT done the flu shot in about 25 yrs....use homeopathics if I feel a flu coming on and use Echineaca if I feel a cold might start.....these 2 work every time for me.
Oh, it also reduces/eliminates edema....had this issue twice one from blood pressure med and the other from hip replacement. (saga)
My voice is strong and clear.
I've told everyone who enters my life and MOST are taking grape seed extract and loving their new found health.
I was 57 when I found these powerful antioxidants or they found me and I'm now 76. I'm banking on these antioxidants re: the cancer issues...
Do your homework, there is tons of info on these on the net and books are written about these too. I own 6 little books on them. Joy
