Of interest for COPD and Pulmonary Fibrosis

If you've read posts on EC for any length of time, you are probably aware of how common these two diseases are and how hard they are to treat as they are mentioned often on EC.

This very recent study suggests that pine bark extract (PBE) has activity against both health issues. PBE is one of my favorite supplements and is well noted for its antiinflammatory effects, but studies continue to show other potential health benefits associated with the use of PBE and clearly, it appears that PBE is useful for helping to ameliorate fibrosis in multiple areas of the body and is worthy of being on a list of potential supplements for these two dieases. It is often useful to have a "list" of potential supplements that may be useful in trying to treat a specific disease, because often times a supplement that works well for one person may not do as well for someone else or perhaps that person is not able to tolerate it, so having a "list of options" may offer similar help from another supplement........especially for diseases that are known to be difficult to treat.
