Pycnogenol helpful in asthma therapy study

A study published in the Journal of Asthma reports that supplements of Pycnogenol (a pine bark extract) helped to improve lung function and reduce asthma symptoms. This resulted in a reduction or discontinuation of rescue inhaler use in many subjects. The supplement was also associated with a reduced level of inflammation which causes asthma. Pycnogenol was used because of its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
