Arginine and pycnogenol: 1 + 1 = 3

Better blood flow in endurance sports

L-arginine is an amino acid that plays a role in the synthesis of nitric oxide and, among other things, ensures greater blood flow in the vessels, resulting in better transport of blood and nutrients to the muscles. Extra blood supply to the muscles can help to increase endurance. In addition, it becomes easier for the body to drain and remove harmful substances that accumulate in the muscles during exercise.

What is Pycnogenol®?

Pycnogenol® is a natural plant extract derived from the bark of the maritime pine that grows along the coast of southwest France and contains a unique combination of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and phenolic acids. Three natural raw materials with a number of health benefits.

Why can Pycnogenol play an important role in physical activity?

Physical exercise is important for general health and at the same time increases the oxygen demand of our body. Research suggests that Pycnogenol ® can play an important role in this physical activity, as this patented extract supports the body in producing nitric oxide NO, which improves blood circulation (particularly blood flow to the muscles). Pycnogenol ® supports the body in achieving peak performance and accelerates post-exercise recovery, which can lead to reduced muscle load in athletes.

How can Pycnogenol ® relax blood vessels and improve blood flow?

Pycnogenol ® stimulates the enzyme "endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS)" for a better production of NO from the precursor molecule L-arginine.

How does Pycnogenol ® work to increase energy?

The relationship between Pycnogenol ® and an athlete's endurance was studied several years ago at the University of California. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, recreational athletes were supplemented with either Pycnogenol ® or placebo. Both groups were monitored for 30 days. Both groups were then switched to the other program for a further 30 days. The athletes exercised on a treadmill under controlled conditions with individual settings (set to 85% of their maximum oxygen consumption) to prevent the body from becoming exhausted and reduce anaerobic metabolism.
