Study Shows Pine Bark Reduces Jetlag
Date:11/5/2008

Pycnogenol(R) cut jetlag symptoms in half for passengers taking 7- to

9-hour flights

HOBOKEN, N.J., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study published in the journal of Minerva Cardioangiologica reveals Pycnogenol(R), pine bark extract from the French maritime pine tree, reduces jetlag in passengers by nearly 50 percent. The two-part study, consisting of a brain CT scan and a scoring system, showed Pycnogenol(R) lowered symptoms of jetlag such as fatigue, headaches, insomnia and brain edema (swelling) in both healthy individuals and hypertensive patients. Passengers also experienced minimal lower leg edema, a common condition associated with long flights.

Jetlag, also called desynchronosis, is a temporary disorder that causes a variety of temporary mental and physical impairments as a result of air travel across time zones -- common in flights to Asia and Europe, but also observed in travelers between West and East coast. It is caused due to the body's inability to immediately adjust to the time in a different zone while travelling. As the body struggles to cope with the new schedule, temporary conditions such as insomnia, fatigue, irritability and an impaired ability to concentrate may set in.

"This study could not have come at a better time for the upcoming holiday travel season," said Dr. Gianni Belcaro, a lead researcher of the study. Belcaro attributes Pycnogenol's(R) combined activities for better circulation and antioxidant potency to such remarkable results. "Previous Pycnogenol(R) flight studies have shown a reduction in jetlag; however this was the first study to solely focus on the condition."

The study, conducted at the G. D'Annunzio University in Pescara, Italy, consisted of 133 passengers who took flights that were seven to nine hours in length. Fifty mg of oral Pycnogenol(R) was administered three times daily, for seven days, starting two days prior to the flight.
