Pine bark may support brain function Recent news from Auckland University of Technology has people excited about a pine bark extract called Enzogenol. AUT reported that patients suffering memory loss and other brain problems after a traumatic brain injury recovered better when taking Enzogenol compared to a control group. Enzogenol is not a new product, though. In fact, it was developed at Canterbury University and has been in our health food shops for over 10 years. According to ENZO Nutraceuticals, the company that produces the product, a number of research studies have shown how Enzogenol can help improve brain function and support

healthy blood circulation. The amazing thing is, it is made from the bark of New Zealand Pinus Radiata with an extraction method that uses only purified water. Apparently, the pine bark is full of healthy plant compounds that are naturally part of our diet when we eat fruits and vegetables. Yet, the pine bark is loaded with these natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and makes a great starting material for this health product. Keen on a chewing a bit of pine bark?

“Treadle” for Healthy Feet “Treadling” on an Aircycle circulation booster is a highly effective way to keep your feet healthy,” says Lynne Taylor, Manager of Diabetes Christchurch. Maintaining good blood flow in the feet is key to preventative foot care and is simple with an Aircycle. The “treadle” exercise works the calf muscles and pumps the blood. “It’s in our feet that arthritis, complications of diabetes, including nerve, neuropathy and circulatory disorders often show up,” says Lynne. ”It’s important to heed the first signs, as loss of feeling can mean abrasions, ulcers and other foot problems go undetected or do not heal, sometimes leading to amputation”. By maintaining good blood flow with the Aircycle, people frequently

report numb, tingling feet regain feeling, normal colour and flexibililty, swollen ankles and cramps are relieved and ulcers heal. No need for special exercise times with the Aircycle. Just use it gently while having coffee, watching TV or chatting on the phone. Pop it in your pocket to take to use under your desk in the office or when travelling by car or plane. It’s so easy to protect and care for your feet with an Aircycle. Aircycles are available in pharmacies, Diabetes Christchurch, or call 0800 14 14 15.
