Where is the connection between platelet aggregation and cardiovascular death?

Increased platelet activity has been associated with the development of atherosclerotic plaques and has also been implicated in sudden coronary death. Environmental pollution such as air pollution and cigarette smoke increase blood plasma catecholamines and thromboxane, which in turn exacerbate platelet activity and increase blood clotting.

How does Pine Bark extracts help in protecting our cardiac health?
Pine Bark extract has been scientifically proven to reduce at least one of the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, that is, platelet aggregation. The bioflavonoids in Pine Bark extract prevent blood clotting, and protect cardiac cells against free radical damage. Pine Bark extract stimulates the release of nitric oxide by endothelial cells, thus relaxing arterial walls and allowing surge of blood to pass through easily. Additional benefits of Pine Bark extract to our heart include:

  • increases capillary resistance
  • promotes better peripheral blood flow
  • improves microcirculation
  • decreases systolic and diastolic pressure
