Recent research on Pycnogenol®, French maritime pine bark extract, demonstrates kidney health benefits in metabolic syndrome patients. Published in Panminerva Medica, the study found that after supplementing with Pycnogenol®, patients experienced effective blood pressure control, reduced blood sugar, and further noticed lowered Body Mass index (BMI) due to weight loss.
The results of the study demonstrate Pycnogenol®’s ability not only to control hypertension but also to restore kidney function in those impacted by metabolic syndrome. Additionally, patients not only demonstrated lower blood glucose levels, but also noticed significant weight loss during the six months of Pycnogenol® supplementation.
This study reinforces previous studies that reveal Pycnogenol® is a natural solution for individuals with metabolic syndrome, particularly for kidney protection.
