Pycnogenol® Supplement: Is This Anti-Wrinkle Supplement for You?
On a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz introduced special guest Rosemary Ellis, the editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping magazine, who swears to viewers that an all-natural supplement called "Pycnogenol®" - that she takes personally - makes skin look younger.
“It has amazing skin smoothing and plumping properties. It smooth’s your skin, plumps it up a little, and makes wrinkles a little finer. You take it three times a day at 25 milligrams - and it works,” says Ms. Ellis.
While the claims that Pycnogenol® works great as an anti-aging supplement sounds a lot like the typical hype you hear with many anti-aging products, this is one of the few that actually has quite a bit of research behind it. And although that research is focused primarily on the non-skincare health benefits of Pycnogenol® (such as for treating men with erectile dysfunction), there is one recent study from 2012 in the journal Skin Pharmacology & Physiology that reports showing that Pycnogenol® actually does hydrate skin cells, making it a potential anti-wrinkling supplement.
The biggest con to buying this supplement is the cost. While the said episode of The Dr. Oz Show displayed a bottle of Pycnogenol® costing a paltry $12, a look around the neighborhood health stores and grocery supplement shelves revealed a significantly higher price.
