5. Skin Care with Pycnogenol

Passwater PhD, Richard Basic Health Publications ePub

Skin is more than beautyit is a vital organ that protects us from the environment, maintains hydration and body temperature, and is part of the immune system. Pycnogenol has been called the skin vitamin by many users. However, as explained earlier, Pycnogenol is not a vitamin, but a nutritional supplement. It has also been popularly called the oral cosmetic because it gives skin a more vibrant glow. Pycnogenol renews skin by rebuilding tissue, making skin more flexible, smoother, healthier, and younger looking. Pycnogenol cant undo deep wrinkles or repair the permanent sun damage of actinic keratosis, but it can make skin healthier, livelier, tighter, firmer, more elastic, smoother, and with fewer fine lines and less discoloration. Supplementation with Pycnogenol shows visible results, as proven in clinical studies.

Also, topical application of Pycnogenol works well. It directly nourishes the skin and is nonirritating. An aqueous solution containing 5 percent Pycnogenol can be absorbed by the skin in four to six hours.

CHAPTER 6: Nutrition for Allergies

Donning Ph.D., Damien Basic Health Publications ePub

We’ve talked about preventing allergies, but you can’t always do that. What if it’s ragweed pollen that’s making you sneeze, for instance? Moving out of the city, away from the pollution, would seem a good idea, but it might just expose you to more pollen, making you worse off. Or what if you have a chemical sensitivity, but you can’t avoid the chemicals completely and still live in your city and go to your job? In this chapter, we’re going to look at supplements you can take to reduce or even switch off the symptoms you get when exposed to your allergens. I’ll also give you guidelines about how much of each to take and how often.

The simplest way to use this advice is to take all of the nutrients, and this will certainly help most people. But this isn’t always necessary or practical.

• You may not need all of the supplements all of the time. And they don’t come for free, of course. If cost is an issue, or if being able to take something several times a day is tricky, you are free to experiment and see what you can get away with. It’s your body and your symptoms after all. Important exceptions to this are when it’s a serious reaction—never take chances with those (see Chapter 2: Allergies That Kill).
