Nature’s Farm: Pycnogenol

24 Aug

As I walked past the Nature’s Farm outlet, I saw that there are certain items on offer & wanted to take a look at some of their Organic skincare products.  Well, you know me.  Health somehow is associated with organic stuff.

The sales assistant then strongly recommended several of the Pycnogenol products to me (probably because she saw that my lip area is heavily infected with cold sores, and it still is).

:-*/  <– remember this symbol?

Anyway, the sales assistant said that Pycnogenol is one of their FAST-SELLING product.

*doubtful*… if it’s fast-selling, it would mean that it is super good, right?  Then how come I never heard of it?  So I picked up a bottle & saw that it costs a friggin $323.  (-_-)  okay, now that explains why I never heard of it.  So high-end, one…

Of course, the one that I looked at was of a stronger dosage as shown below.  They have a variety of Pycnogenol with different dosages & different quantity in a box (even for kids!!!  how considerate!), so you can pick the one that suits you best.

Pycnogenol RX GOLD Super Strength.

90 Tablets in one bottle.

Each tablet contains a dosage of 150mg of great formidable powers.

Which translates to about $3.60 per tablet.

*high-pitched*… WHAT????????????????????

You know what I can do with $3.60????  I can do a lot of enjoyable things instead of popping a tablet in my mouth & gulping down a mouthful of water within 2 seconds.  Lots of things like:

1)      a plate of delicious chicken rice

2)      1 or 2 face mask sheets

3)      a medium hot cup of San Francisco coffee

4)      a few donuts from Donut Factory

5)      1 nail polish from The Face Shop

6)      1 MacDonald burger

7)      at least 2 Stabilo / Pilot writing pens

8)      ½ of a movie ticket on a weekday

9)      1 round trip of MRT from my home to Suntec & back again

10)    I’m sure some items from IKEA

I decided to do some research first, so I went back to my office to find out more about this… … Pycnogenol.

It appears that Pycnogenol is FAMOUS!!!  It has been researched on dunno how many countless times!!!  And even got various international patents!!!  According to the testimonials, results can be seen between 1-3 months!!!  ZUN BO (english translation: sure or not)??????

There are lots of websites containing information about this Pycnogenol.  Apparently it is made from some kind of French maritime pine bark extract (whatever that is) & this can aid the body in many ways, just to name a few common ones:

1)      Powerful Antioxident

2)      Skin Health

3)      Eye Health

4)      Women’s Heath

5)      Many more other benefits, for even heart & cardiovascular, etc

Just read it HERE on the Nature Farm’s website because it sounds so much more impressive.  Even has testimonials from people who has taken the Pycnogenol for a period of time.

Ok, I am convinced.

GIVE ME ONE!!!  NAO NAO NAO!!!

But wait… SURPRISE SURPRISE!!!  Nature Farm is having a promotion on Pycnogenol too!!!  Instead of paying 1 bottle for $323, we get to have 2 bottles for $333.  Damn worth it, right??  It’s like buy 1 for 1 free.

This promotion period is till end of August 2010.  Honestly, I don’t know if this applies to Nature’s Farm islandwide, but I do know that the one in Suntec has this promotion.  There are also other items on promo as well.

STOP!!!  If there is such a great promotion on products, doesn’t that mean that the expiry date is nearing????

Nope.  These are BRAND NEW stocks.  Expiry Date in year 2013.  EXCELLENT PERFECT!!!

Hey, there is also some kind of promotion going on at The Body Shop till end of August 2010 too!!!  Read about it HERE.

What’s so special about August?  Can somebody explain to me?

Did Christmas come early this year????????

My love for health is to the point of freakish, I tell you.  So I was thinking that it was worth a try, given the benefits mentioned.  So, I decided to plurge on it.

Anyway now they have a promotion offer, right?  So why not?  Buy 1 get 1 free, so now 1 tablet becomes $1.85 and not $3.60 per tablet.

$1.85 per tablet I can still accept.  *nods in approval*

I just started taking the Pycnogenol on 16 August 2010.  Today is 23 August & for now, I do feel that my bowel system seems healthier.  Usually I only manage to poop once in a few days or sometimes once in a week (I KNOW IT’S SUPER UNHEALTHY, but the doctor once told me that some ppl experience constant constipation), but after 1 week of taking the Pycnogenol, I get to poop every single day!  =D  But is it really the Pycnogenol at work???

Let me give you an update 1 month later.

See what kind of benefits will take place in my body.

    Hi Berry, I’m not sure if my previous comment got through ’cause I was using my phone and 3G was revoltingly unstable.

    How’s your progress with this supplement? 🙂 I’ve just started taking it one week ago and I don’t know whether to continue doing so ’cause it can get rather expensive.

    i have been buying GNC french pine bark but i came to know about the nature farm pycnogenol and confuse which is best for me whether with the name pycnogenol or not. Nature farm claim that they are best with the name pycnogenol as GNC said they are the same without the work pycnogenol. shall i continue the french pine bark from GNC

    Pycnogenol is both astringent and bitter, and can definitely CAUSE constipation because of those qualities. You’re lucky it helped you.
