I have been taking Pycnogenol for almost two years-I'm 86 and after starting the pycnogenol I have less pain, no more using a walker and feeling much better. My asthma is better also, sleeping all night without waking up to use my puffer-found the book Pycnogenol Phenomenon on Amazon was so helpful. Ordered three of them for family members. I tried three different Brands of pycnogenol- all worked pretty much the same. I'm a retired R.N. and do my research before trying something new.

First thing that improved was my circulation, then blood pressure and lungs. This is NOT a scam.

I have finally made it back some how to this page.On the info. about Pycn(herb)It seems to be a problem finding this herb in my area, but the plus side is I find that grape seed extract does just as good & this is what I need so much for so long.I was born with a blood disease interfering with my circulation where recently my Dr. told me I'm due for a heart attack, hence I am in a great hurry to get started on this new journey. Thank you every one for your help and info. Good Luck.

Diamond: Many online health food stores sell all kinds of antioxidants including Pycn and should be no problem shipping from within the usa.

In severe cases, like one I have, getting enough antioxidant nutrition has been very challenging ---until I discovered Lipospheric or LET nutrition starting w/ Vit-C. Most recently I LET's Grapeseed Extract + Resveratrol w/ profound effect. It seems the Pycnogenol is not as easily available as compared to Grapeseed Extract, and I have no doubt that combined w/ Resveratrol that Grapeseed is in any way inferior to Pycynogenol (or commonly known as Pine Bark Extract).

I mention all this in particular for folks w/ severe cases where they cannot get proper levels of antioxidant nutrition. The LET forms of A.N. are absolutely the best. It may also be noted that digestive disorders can be at fault in unresponsive cases.

Oh, the 2 major www retailers Amazon and Ebay will have listing of hundreds of the items you need and they provide shipping info like tracking numbers where you can view the progress of your package.

Let us know if you have any luck.

I would like to find out where I could order Pycnogenol as I have severe inflammation as well as poor blood circulation. I also have a problem having packages delivered to Massachusetts via other countries, quoted via the US government. Thank you for any help offered.

I've just ordered Pycnogenol from iHerb and can't wait to use it. After reading several reviews I thought I'd give it a try. I will post results. I love EarthClinic!!

What if you harvest it yourself? Wouldn't that be the best solution?

Hi Kathi,

I ordered the Source Naturals tablets from Amazon after reading the positive reviews. However, last week I started reading the reviews on iherb.com and decided when I run out of the tablets that I will order another brand, Healthy Origins (capsules), as it had an even higher number of positive reviews. Hope it works for you!

Lori, thanks for sharing this info. I'd like to try since I too suffer from cold hands/feet, esp in the winter. wondering about your source, given the other warning post. Grateful if you could suggest where to obtain pycnogenol.

I've been using pycnogenol for 3 weeks and I love it. The first thing I noticed was an increase in circulation to my hands and feet. I have cold hands and feet and mine are considerably warmer. They stay warm so long as the pycnogenol is in my system and then subsides if I happen to skip a day. It definitely gives me energy (don't take it at night if you want to sleep). It also helps dry out my sinuses, which have been irritated with grass pollen for the past 6 weeks. I am taking 1-2 tablets a day with meals.

I don't have time to google this for you now but Pycnogenol is a huge scam! I found this out a few years ago when I bought pyc. and it wasn't a waste of $$$$. Basically Horphag labs sold out to USA. Pycnogenol is ONLY pyc. if it's derived from FRENCH MARITIME PINE TREES. USA has competely messed up with the processing and they're adding toxic chemicals to the process, don't quote me on that but the gist of it is the pycnog. is so altered in processing that it's no longer bioactive pycn. You need to google it. It's a huge scam and a hoax now. It's no longer pure. I am too busy ATM to find it for you but read up on the French person who discovered it and how they sold out to USA's deceitful greed & it's basically not worth more than a toxic processed food.
