Pycnogenol® improved memory and mood in students
In one study, 53 Italian University students of nearly equal intelligence, aged 18 to 27, took 100 mg of Pycnogenol® per day or a placebo.

After eight weeks, while the placebo group had not changed, those taking Pycnogenol® showed increased attention and memory, had higher test scores than placebo, felt more contented and in a better mood, and had 17 percent lower levels of anxiety than at the start of the study.

Doctors said the students may have benefited because Pycnogenol® improved circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain.
