Strangely enough, French Pine Bark has a loyal following.  The inner bark, from the Pinus pinaster trees are grown along the coastline of southwest France and has been used as an extract for the past 450 years.  The inner bark is processed and turned into a tonic (extract) that contains powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

The primary components of the extract, is known as Pycnogenol (a brand of pine bark extract).  This extract contains antioxidants called procyanidins, which are also found in red wine and pomegranates which make up about 70 percent of the extract.  Advocates say the antioxidants fight oxidative stress that can lead to disease development, signs of aging, memory loss, muscle and/or joint pain.

So, we all know the power of antioxidants to improve our health and the high-antioxidant foods we should eat regularly, but why put French Pine Bark Extract in a Pre Workout?  Well let's take a closer look at this miracle extract.

French Pine bark and its relationship with exercise performance have shown that those who take between 100 to 150mg of the supplement on a daily basis can increase muscular endurance and recovery by up to 15% compared to those who do not take the supplement at all.  

French Pine Bark does this by improving the time it takes the body to reach a fatigued state through increased serum NAD+ levels.  Additionally, athletes experienced less cramping and muscle pain when using the extract. It’s likely that muscle recovery time is improved as well, due to the high antioxidants pine bark extract contains.
