Only 1kg of Pycnogenol® is extracted from 1000kg of French maritime pine trees. In the Western countries, it is a promising ingredient deemed valuable for the maintenance of health, and thus consumed by many. Research has been carried out for over 40 years by Horphag Research, a Swiss company that is also the supplier of Pycnogenol® as a raw material. Powderised using a proprietary extraction process, it contains over 40 types of flavonoids including procyanidin, catechin and phenolic acids. As the story goes, in 16th century, a French expedition team was stricken by illness while in Canada, and the crew members regained their energy after drinking the natives' tea of roasted pine bark.
Mirtoselect® is a proprietary bilberry extract manufactured by Indena of Italy, from freshly ripened bilberries harvested between July and September. Bilberry is a wild species of blueberry, native to Northern Europe. It is a fruit-bearing, resilient shrub that withstands the ultraviolet rays of the long daylight hours. Fresh bilberries contain about 4 times the anthocyanin (a type of polyphenol) of blueberry. Mirtoselect® contains 36% anthocyanin. We support your lifestyle by using only bilberry extract of the highest quality that does not undergo chemical treatment.
