Menopausal? Supplementation with Pycnogenol® (pine bark extract) improves signs and symptoms of menopausal transition.

I bought some pine bark extract a while ago to put in my top food bars and nutrition powders.
The research continues to reinforce the validity of my decisions to incorporate a wide range of very healthy ingredients:
Supplementation with Pycnogenol® (pine bark extract) improves signs and symptoms of menopausal transition.
A subset of six most common symptoms comprising hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, irregular periods, loss of libido and vaginal dryness showed a decrease from average 2.67/4 to 1.45/4 after 8 weeks supplementation with Pycnogenol®. Further symptoms related to fatigue, sleeping disorders, concentration and memory problems, dizziness, depression and irritability all improved significantly with Pycnogenol®. Oxidative stress was significantly lowered after four weeks (P<0.05) and eight weeks (P<0.022) in the Pycnogenol® group while no significant changes were observed in the control group at any time.
