Pycnogenol Relieves Plaque Psoriasis


A painful and embarrassi­ng autoimmune disease, plaque psoriasis is marked by patches of inflamed skin that are red, flaky, dry, and thickened. A study of people suffering from the condition, published in the Italian medical journal Panminerva Medica, found that a patented extract of a French maritime pine bark, Pycnogenol ( 50 mg, three times daily), reduced the amount of affected skin area, increased moisture, and improved people’s lives.

“In this study and in several others on chronic inflammato­ry conditions, Pycnogenol has shown significan­t clinical results and without any side effects, making it a safe natural alternativ­e for those seeking relief from the s ymptoms of psoriasis,” said lead researcher Gianni Belcaro, MD, PhD.
