The phenolic compounds of the pine tree protect the cells from free radicals
The Pinena products are made from the bark and nila of Finnish pine trees. Pine bark contains plenty of phenolic compounds, such as resveratrol, catechin and other flavonoids. These compounds protect the tree for example from viruses, bacteria, pests and the UV radiation of the sun. These compounds function as antioxidants in the body, protecting the cells and helping the body to protect itself against the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are the root cause for example in cardiovascular diseases and they also promote premature aging.
The valuable compounds of the pine are extracted to the Pinena products with a method based on ancient traditions and modern-day scientific research. The Pine product family includes Pinena Pine Bark Extract and Pinena Immunity, a product with vitamins C and E designed specifically to boost the immune system.
