Vitals Pycnogenol® is a patented and standardized pine bark extract (the outer part of the bark) of the maritime pine (Pinus pinaster), which is a pine species that grows at the SW coast of France.
Pines are rich in various polyphenols such as the oligomere proanthocyanidines (OPC) and organic acids (among which ferulic acid, cinnamic acid, and caffeic acid).

Pycnogenol has established quite a reputation in the past 40 years as a novel supplement. By now pycnogenol is one of the best researched nutritional supplements with no less than 300 scientific articles.

The biological effects of pine bark extract are multifaceted and based on various pathways.
Vitals Pycnogenol® is a strong antioxidant which protects cells in the body against free radicals. Pycnogenol also support a healthy immune response, which is important to maintain healthy lungs.

Pycnogenol also supports a healthy blood pressure, good blood circulation and elastic arteries because it positively influences the synthesis of NO (nitrogenoxide) from the amino acid L-arginine in the vessel walls.
NO is involved in many regulatory mechanisms,among which arterial walls.
Pycnogenol assists in maintaining the strength of veins and capillaries and is very useful for people with varicose veins and tired legs.

The active ingredients in the pine bark extract directly influence the activity of the enzyme α-glucosidase, which results in a faster absorption of carbohydrates in the gut. This is how pycnogenol can assist in a balanced glucose metabolism.

Vitals Pycnogenol® assists in the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are important building blocks for cartilage and synovial fluids. Apart from a healthy immune respons, these building blocks are also important for a normal joint function.

Women entering menopause can also benefit from supplementing with pycnogenol , because it also positively affects symptoms such as hot flushes.
When combined with proper nutrition and training, athletes can benefit from using pycnogenol, as it can make them faster and have better endurance capacity too. Furthermore, pycnogenol can improve recovery after heavy training sessions.
The main reason for this beneficial effect is because pycnogenol is an antioxidant. Even though formation of free radicals is a normal process after strenuous exercise, so you might wonder whether that is part of the positive effect of training, pycnogenol never negatively affected training results.

Why can resistant starch improve your blood sugar balance?

Among the most popular good intentions we have before the new year starts is to improve health and lose weight.
Sadly, for many of us, those good intentions fall by the wayside within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. The main reason for failing on any given diet is that it tends to be a too drastic change in how we tend to eat.
Which for most of us, tends to be a moderate to high-carb diet, which for most Dutch people tends to revolve around bread and potatoes. That will make it very hard if you want to make a switch to a low-carb diet as is the norm these days.

However, I've got good news for you! You may not need to give up on all of your carbs. Instead, you can try to switch from carbs that have a negative impact on your blood sugar balance, towards slow-acting carbs also known as ... resistant starch.
Even when you are quite happy about eating a (very) low-carb diet, there are still ways to increase the amount of resistant starch in your diet, without drastically increasing the amount of calories and 'net carbs'.

Therefore the article below will tell you everything about resistant starch you need to know.

Tips and tricks to keep your house cool without airconditioning

After having survived the hottest two weeks of the past century, and hearing about the deliberate choice to switch of the power in some areas of California as it became impossible to match the demand for electricity, due to the massive use of airconditioning, this week's topic had to be about how to keep your house and yourself cool without needing to rely on energy-guzzling airconditioning.

How to make better food and lifestyle choices 

Ever since Boris Johnson barely survived an infection with COVID-19, he embraced a healthier lifestyle. He doesn't just want to live healthier himself, but also wants the British people to eat and live healthier as well. 
The question is, how? Over time, manufacturers of junkfood have mastered the game of tricking us into buying calorific foods while these foods are also attractive because we have evolved to enjoy that kind of foods. 
 
Aside from financial incentives to make us buy less junkfood (sugar tax) and more healthy foods (by lowering VAT) the best bet seems to be a mix of methods that 'nudge' us into making better choices.
 
There have been countless behavioural science-based initiatives intended to nudge healthier eating. But which ones actually work, leading to a sustained behaviour change? And of those, which are most effective? What concepts, tools and styles of intervention are best at getting us to eat healthy foods, or less of the unhealthy foods...?

How to prevent or treat varicose veins with natural remedies?

Sometimes it seems like varicose veins come out of nowhere when you’re least expecting it. Most people over the age of 60 have some degree, and usually they’re not a big deal. But they could be, it depends on the general health of your veins.

Valves in your veins are supposed to work harmoniously to move blood in one direction, to the heart!
If your heart is weak, or your valves stop working, or your veins lose collagen and become weakened, then the blood stays in your legs and feet longer than it should. It pools faster if you’re standing for a long time or if you’re sitting for a long time like during a long plane flight. The pressure inside your veins makes them wider and after a while, micro amounts of blood leak out into the surrounding tissue.
Varicose veins form, that is what you see when you look at your legs and see those twisted, distended big blue veins. It causes venous insufficiency. You are not the only one suffering: a large amount of especially elderly people and those who have to stand for a long time in their jobs, have varicose veins. They mostly impact the legs and feet.

What are free radicals?

The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA.

Free radicals are associated with human disease, including cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and many others. They also may have a link to aging, which has been defined as a gradual accumulation of free-radical damage.

Substances that generate free radicals can be found in the food we eat, the medicines we take, the air we breathe and the water we drink. These substances include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollutants.

Free radicals are the natural byproducts of chemical processes, such as metabolism. Free radicals can be seen as as waste products from various chemical reactions in the cell that when built up, harm the cells of the body.

Yet, free radicals are essential to life. The body's ability to turn air and food into chemical energy depends on a chain reaction of free radicals. Free radicals are also a crucial part of the immune system, floating through the veins and attacking foreign invaders.
