Type, Size & Quantity

There are many antioxidants out there that perform the same actions as Pine Bark Extract with varying degrees of success. Some of this extract's peers include Vitamins A, C, and E as well as Selenium. However, the OPCs (Oligomeric Proanthocyanodins, the scientific name for the specific type of antioxidants found in Pine Bark) present in Pine Bark Extract are some of the most potent forms of antioxidants that can be found in nature.

Another rich source of OPC's is in the extract of the Grape Seed, which are more widely used than even Pine Bark Extract. Even though OPC's are present in both extracts, these are two distinct substances and share more differences than they do commonalities.

Pine Bark Extract is not only used as an antioxidant. It also has properties which may allow it to repair Collagen tissue, a type of protein which is the main component that forms blood vessels, connective tissue and skin.

Pine Bark Extract may be more effective as an antioxidant than even Vitamin C and E, the two vitamins generally used for their properties as antioxidants. Pine Bark Extract may be more efficient because it can be absorbed by the body in less than 20 minutes and it effects may go on to last for up to 3 days.

Despite the fact that the three vitamins often compete in the market, in terms of which the better antioxidant is; Pine Bark Extract may actually work well when combined with Vitamin C to help the body recycle and reuse Vitamin E. One more advantage of this particular antioxidant is that it is one of the few that has the ability to pass through the blood brain barrier and may support brain health.

Health Benefits Provided by Pine Bark Extract

This supplement is mainly prized for the high quantity of OPC's in it. Many daily activities such as smoking, being exposed to the sun for too long, or simply eating something that is less than perfectly healthy will cause free radicals to proliferate. In order to get rid of these, antioxidants must be consumed. This extract may also help to maintain levels of Vitamin C and E.

Some studies suggest that Pine Bark Extract may be an immune system booster, however these claims have yet to be fully substantiated. Because OPC's are hard to consume at recommended levels through merely dieting, it is generally recommended that a supplement such as Pine Bark Extract be taken regularly to make up for that.
