By now you may have heard of 1Above’s key active ingredient - Pycnogenol®. Travellers, athletes, and scientists around the world swear by it for antioxidant benefits and of course, reducing the symptoms of jet lag. We explore the science behind this miraculous ingredient and clue you in on all the ways you can benefit from it.
In the 1960s, a scientist called Charles Haimoff developed a revolutionary substance in his Berlin laboratory. This substance, now known as Pycnogenol® (pic-noj-en-all), was extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine tree. Since Haimoff first discovered this unique substance, millions of dollars have been invested in scientific research to ensure the safety and effectiveness of Pycnogenol®.
According to a scientific study, Pycnogenol® has been proven to reduce the length of jet lag by 53.8% and severity by an average of 61.5% after 24 hours. The study involved analysing two groups of travellers, the first group who did take Pycnogenol® and the second group who did not. The results showed the first group took 18.2 hours on average to recover from their jet lag when they took Pycnogenol®, whereas the second group took 39.3 hours to recover after not taking Pycnogenol®. That’s a huge 21.1 hours difference - Pycnogenol can save you from a whole day of suffering from jet lag.
