Thank's everyone. Here is another link about pycnogenol counteracting kidney damage caused by hypertension. Although it will be a few months before I see my nephrologist I will ask him about it.

I am amazed at this Herb and what it is supossed to do, and that we have not heard more about it. I know the report said it is safe, but then this is by the people who are selling it.
Rose was it suppose to help this disease, or ease the pain. Ifyour Dr. recommended it, i would say it has some value. I must do more research on this .

Remember thoug every one please dont take any Herb unless you consult your Neph, First.

I was taking it for my fibrosistic breast disease. The doctor (surgeon) told me that I didn't have to take it any more.

Rose , may i ask why you took this, and why you quit taking it.
Caroline

Janey, i did not read any where ,as of yet where it is said to benefit Kidney health. If it helps the Immune System, is this what you are talking about.

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

No i have not, at this point i would consider it a Herb , since it is supossed to be of the pine family. I most definatly check with my Neph. on this.
I hopw we are thinking of the same thing. i also will check more on this.
