Pycnogenol for ADHD

A new study has come out of Europe which has demonstrated that Pycnogenol has helped to reduce the symptoms of ADD and ADHD in children.

Pycnogenol is an antioxidant plant extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree. It was used in this study of 57 children who took either a placebo, or pycnogenol. Pycnogenol was found to reduce stress hormones in the children, and this led to a reduction in ADD/ADHD symptoms.

The results of this study will be published in the journal: Nutritional Neuroscience in the coming months.

Please note – while these results may be encouraging, this does not mean that Pycnogenol has been proven to work fully for ADD or ADHD. I am not encouraging you to stop medication for ADD or ADHD, and start pycnogenol. My role is to inform you of the newest research developments so that you are ‘up to date’ on ADD and ADHD. Please keep this new study in context.
