On Dec 31st, Dr. Oz kind of started the new year with a bang? Technically it wasn’t the new year, but that was his message for the day. A lot of people want to look younger, for some this is their new year’s resolution. A few months ago, Dr. Oz talked about Phytoceramides, which can be used to help with smoothing out the skin. I think Dr. Oz actually talked about you faking a facelift with it. Well the supplement he talked about for helping with sagging skin this time was Pine Bark Extract.
What is Pine Bark Extract?
This is a pill with natural and powful anti-oxidants which fight oxidative stress in your body, which can cause wrinkles and sagging skin, especially in the face. This is something we all want to avoid, which is why this pill will probably become very popular! The Pine Bark Extract binds itself collagen and elastin. These are two very important proteins in everyone’s skin. When it does this, it helps protect the skin from damaging enzymes, which cause us to look older than we need to. We could go further in-depth, but that’s the basics.
