What is in our TRU-PINE formula?

TRU-PINE contains standardized Pine Bark extract, Vitamin C and Rose Hips. When combined they are synergistically enhanced.

Pine Bark Extract (Pinus Strobus)

Pine bark extract is obtained from the bark of the Northern Canadian Pine tree (pinus strobus) which contains proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins, also known as OPC’s, are a class of bioflavonoids which contain powerful antioxidant properties.* They protect against environmental factors that damage healthy cells in the body.*

Proanthocyanidins are found in the leaves, fruits and nuts of many plant species* however research has shown that higher concentrations of OPC’s are found in pine bark*

Rose Hips fruit (Rosa Canina)

Rose hips of some species, especially Rosa Canina have been used
as a source of food for centuries by the Native People of Canada,
Native American tribes and Europeans as a source of Vitamin C, E and K.
Rose hips are commonly used today in dietary formulas. They can also be used to make jam, jelly, marmalade, wine and soups.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a nutrient that is necessary in the human diet. Humans are unable to synthesis vitamin C; therefore, it must be attained from supplements or a balanced diet.* Vitamin C is vital for the formation and maintenance of connective tissue, amino acid metabolism and protection from chemicals that damage the body*.
