2. Protects the Body from Infection

Pine bark extract can prevent and treat infections in people with both healthy and compromised immune systems and can address serious bacterial infections like staph, E. coli, as well as treating infected wounds. The essential oil of pine bark extract significantly inhibits bacterial growth with the help of proanthocyanidins, polyphenols, and oligomeric flavonoids. These compounds remove harmful free radicals from cells.
