Pine bark has particular health beneficial effects. This natural ingredient is well-known for its anti-inflammatory effects. Pine bark also improves blood pressure and protects against oxidative damage in blood vessels.
The new pine products are made with a novel cold processing approach, exclusively developed by Eevia Health. This new approach maintains the highest quality of the nutrients possible from this raw material. The cold processing allows the production of high concentrations of low-molecular weight oligomeric proanthocyanidin extracts to use green chemistry techniques. The resulting products outperform other pine bark extracts on most parameters, for instance, purity. This specifies less than 10% of pollutants compared to other pine bark extracts.
The extreme purity of products is also supported by the choice to source the raw material from forests in the Finnish Lapland, the north of the Arctic circle in Finland. The northern conditions give significant advantages to wild plants that grow there naturally. The nature of Finnish Lapland is extremely clean and pure. The population density in the area is only 2 people per km², which leaves most of the space for the abundant, wild nature. The purity of Finnish Lapland can be seen, for example, from the lead content in the soil. The concentration of lead in the soil is less than 15 mg per kilogram, while the corresponding number in Central Europe is typically 20-40 mg per kilogram.
