Unfortunately, many of the supplements on the market today just don’t work, partly because the manufacturers are getting their product out too quickly without fully developing it, or are selling supplements without doing enough research. However, pine bark does have research behind it and extensive studies indicate that it can be effective as a supplement.
Pine bark has numerous benefits and the many studies carried out indicate that it can help with:
- Reducing inflammation
- Protects against free radicals
- Reduces the signs of aging
- Improves absorption of Vitamin C to boost immunity
- Reducing swelling which leads to improved circulation
Although pine bark is beneficial and safe to use, and can help to improve overall health, children and pregnant women should not take it, and as with any health supplement you should consult with your doctor before taking it. Pine bark may also have some mild side effects which are slight, although you can minimize the effects of any side effects by talking to your doctor before taking pine bark.
