This pycnogenol comes from the French Maritime Pine Bark which has been acclaimed best source. It is reasonably priced next to other brands of pycnogenol. I have used pycongenol for 24 years. I look 10 years younger than my age as it has kept my skin clear and wrinkle free. I will continue to take this supplement as it also promotes more oxygen to the brain which keeps the mind sharper.

I was looking to reap the benefits of Pine Bark Extract and found Pycnogenol to be the best option at the time. The problem is that Pycnogenol was ridiculously expensive. I then found this patented extract of Pine Bark called Oligopin. It has been standardized to the same amount of oligomeric procyanidins as pycnogenol for a fraction of the price. I began using it and started seeing the benefits. However, the research shows that is becomes much more effective with some of its benefits if it is coupled with Argininie (or in my case, I used L-citrulline, which is logically better, but you can get an Arginine-Citrulline Complex). However, do consult your doctor before using this particular supplement because it can interfere with blood thinners and other medications. But if you do consult the doctor and he/she give you the green light, I definitley recommend this one from California Gold!

It’s the first time I tried this product. At first it was out of curiosity, but I believe that this pine bark helped keep me from the brink of a cold many times. I have yet to take various measurements to compare and contrast in a more systematic way, but even then this product is quite promising, and I’ll keep taking it. Also, I feel that my skin is less inclined to wrinkling. Even after sleeping on my cheek, the morning wrinkles disappeared faster than before. I wonder if it had anything to do with this extract’s effect on cellular damage.

My Cattle dog was loosing hearing and I googled what could help. Pine bark was one of the options to increase blood circulation and improve hearing. What I noticed is that over a year the hearing did not deteriorate, my dog was still able to hear till I had to put her down due to other causes. I do take it as well.

My husband used this for thinning the blood and getting rid of his blood clot. And I always take it a few days before a long flights as a prevention. I used to have sore and kind of swollen legs after 10+ hours flights but when you take pycnogenol you have no pain or swelling. Highly recommended

Very powerful vasodialator. After taking it first time for just 1 week i can feel the difference. Even my blood pressure drops from my normal 120/80 to a perfect 105/70 now. This product is awesome. I've been taking it for more than a year and for sure will take it long term.

This pycnogenol is a high-quality, standardized, patented extract of pine bark sourced from Les Landes Forest, France. Oligopin helps to stimulate our endogenous defense mechanism by improving glutathione production in the body, which is key for the optimal functioning of the immune system. This supplement also supports antioxidant, cardiovascular and vasotonic activity, while offering an anti-inflammatory effect.

I was taking pycnogenol as a part of my antioxidant "regimen", but it was quite expensive. This pine bark extract from CGN is working just as great and for a fraction of price. I have a smoother skin on my whole body and also don´t get sunburned at all (I have a fair skin). Also my vision improved a lot, I´m now wearing glasses only when driving.

This brand has 100% French Pine Bark, no fillers. I take it for my varicose veins, but it has 14 other benefits. I have been taking 100mg. a day but now I am thinking It is possible to take a little more like 150mg. I have tried other brands but I like this one the best so far. When I stop taking it my veins in my legs swell slightly. My results are not dramatic, but my mother who has never taken pine bark has really poor legs with bulging veins. I am 76 years old 55kg,122 pounds,1.575 meters,5'2". My veins started showing in high school and I bruised easily. My mother is 5'4",98pounds lives alone and takes a short walk everyday.
