Asthma Home > Pycnoginal

Were you looking for information on Pycnogenol? Pycnoginal is a common misspelling of Pycnogenol.
Some of the many benefits of Pycnogenol® include treating asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The dietary supplement is made from the bark of the French maritime pine tree. While more research is needed to determine if Pycnogenol is effective for all these uses, there is strong evidence that it can treat asthma, chronic venous insufficiency, and retinopathy.
