The Finnish pine (Pinus silvestris), growing in the harsh conditions of the North, creates a high level of antioxidants during its lifetime.
Nordic Beauty Pine Bark extract is made of the bark and the phloem of young pines. The extraction process is carried out according to traditional folklore, in addition to which information gained from tests made at different universities has also been taken into consideration.
Nordic Beauty Pine Bark Extract contains different phenolic compounds, mainly resveratrol and catechins, around 500 µg/ml in total. It can be considered an efficient antioxidant as it showed 95% inhibition of ex vivo low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation.

It was found out that Nordic Beauty Pine Bark extract showed 1,5 times more inhibition than French maritime pine bark extract and over ten times more than green tea and about five times more than vitamin C.
