Good news for trav­el­ers. A new study shows that nat­u­ral French mar­itime pine bark ex­tract Pycnogenol, a pow­er­ful su­per­an­tiox­i­dant shown to boost blood cir­cu­la­tion and act as a nat­u­ral anti-in­flam­ma­tory, is ef­fec­tive in re­duc­ing lower leg swelling (edema) and re­liev­ing jet lag of­ten as­so­ci­ated with long flights and road trips. Edema is one of the ma­jor risk fac­tors of deep vein throm­bo­sis (DVT), which can re­sult from lack of ac­tiv­ity or be­ing con­fined in an air­plane or car for long pe­ri­ods of time. Par­tic­i­pants were tested for blood clots and vein com­pres­sion be­fore and af­ter each flight. Re­sults show that those who sup­ple­mented with Pycnogenol ex­pe­ri­enced sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment of their edema symp­toms. Pycnogenol was also found to im­prove jet lag symp­toms, help­ing trav­el­ers feel more rested.
