What i found on the Herb Pycnogenol------It sounds to good to be true, It sounds like a miracle Herb. Me , i had never heard of it..
I want to say before taking any HERB PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR NEPHROLOGIST.
Pyccnogenol-----A powerful Antioxidant--Heart Health--Cognitive Function--Dermatology--Diabetes--Eye Health--Immune System--Joint Health--Menstrual disorders--Oral Health--Respiratory Function, Sports Nutrition--Travel Health--Vein Health.
It is a water extract from the bark of the French Maritine Pine Tree. It was used to make teas and other concoctions using the pine needles and bark of the tree to relieve Scurvy and improve wound healing and other ailments.
If you look this up it will tell you under each of the headings i have posted above, such as Heart Health what it does for each heading. I do believe a lot of things Herbs can do for us, as the Indians used lots of them, for that is all the meds. they had.
We with Kidney disease have to be very careful as to what we put in our body and each of us is different, and use different things.
So Please ,Please, check with your NEPHROLOGIST before using any HERBS.
Hope this helps-------------Caroline
