Supplementation of Enzongenol and It's High-Potency Flavonoid and Anti-Oxidant Content For Improved Health
Enzogenol® is a whole herbal extract that contains all water-soluble phenolic compounds in their natural distribution as they occur inthe bark of New Zealand Pinus Radiata trees. Hence, the extract is a totally natural, unaltered, highly active mixture of these plant compounds that include many different flavonoids, stilbenes and phenolic acids.
Two hundred milligram of Enzogenol® is equivalent in flavonoid content to 1kg of fresh
vegetables, plus 0.4kg of fresh fruits (based on the “USDA database for
flavonoid content in foods” counting 29 and 54 different types of fruits
and vegetables, respectively).
The most abundant compounds in Pinus Radiata bark are the
proanthocyanidins (also called oligomeric proanthocyanidins, OPCs,
procyanidins, or condensed tannins). The proanthocyanidins are a
complex group of flavonoids that consist of dimers, trimers, oligo- or
polymers of catechin and epicatechin. Pinus Radiata includes the
proanthocyanidin dimers B1, B3, B6, trimer C2, and other larger
oligo- and polymers1,2. Enzogenol contains more than 80% of
proanthocyanidins by weight.
Other flavonoids and non-flavonoid phenolics present in Enzogenol
include monomeric catechin, taxifolin (dihydroquercetin),
quercetin, myricetin, stilbenes (piceatannol),
and several phenolic acids.
