The award acknowledges the company's extensive research projects and numerous clinical tests, spread over 40 years, aimed at validating the health benefits of the ingredient, Pycnogenol®, across industries such as food and beverage ingredients and pharmaceuticals.

"Pycnogenol® is one of the most evidence-based health ingredients with over 220 scientific publications and 80 clinical trials on 7000 patients, confirming its safety, non toxicity, and clinical efficacy since 1975," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sneha Pasricha. "The published studies have validated Pycnogenol®'s role in promoting a wide range of health benefits including cardiovascular, circulatory, cognitive, diabetes, eye, skin, and joint health."

A study in 1975 confirmed Pycnogenol®'s potential to reduce edema and pain in the lower legs, while another one in 1986 corroborated Pycnogenol®'s protective effects on the eyes. In 1998, numerous studies proved Pycnogenol®'s beneficial role in cardiovascular health and normalization of platelet function.

Several studies conducted in 2004 revealed Pycnogenol®'s ability to lower blood glucose levels and improve metabolic syndrome and diabetic complications. In 2006, evidence was obtained regarding Pycnogenol®'s anti-inflammatory potency in humans that causes relief during menstrual pain and asthma. A series of research efforts in 2008 validated Pycnogenol®'s capability to reduce pain and improve joint flexibility in osteoarthritis patients.

"Horphag has 12 ongoing research works on Pycnogenol® in the pipeline and in December 2008, another study was published, demonstrating significant lowering of the inflammatory marker, C-reactive protein (CRP) in osteoarthritis patients post intake of Pycnogenol®," notes Pasricha. "These key research initiatives demonstrate the company's accomplishments that have surpassed all similar efforts undertaken by other research institutes on Pycnogenol®."

Pycnogenol®'s versatility is obvious in its capacity to not only improve blood flow, blood lipid profile, and strengthening blood capillary walls but also to lower cholesterol, normalize blood pressure, and prevent thrombosis. It reduces blood glucose level and carbohydrate absorption, thereby preventing diabetic syndrome, diabetic ulcers, and muscle cramps.

Its antioxidant properties and anti photo-aging potencies make it ideal for oral and topical skin care formulas, while its capability to bind collagen and elastin improves skin elasticity and reduces pigmentation. Its immune modulation profile makes it suitable for combating asthma and hay fever, thereby promoting respiratory health.

Evidently, Pycnogenol® provides a reliable and clinically tested nutritional option of addressing a comprehensive range of health issues across the food and beverage ingredients and pharmaceutical industries. Moreover, it is one of the few ingredients that conform to bioavailability, metabolization, excretion, and complete pharmacokinetics in humans.

"Pycnogenol® has set a new benchmark for all nutritional ingredients and dietary supplements in terms of its versatile health benefits, safety data, and research portfolio and has the highest probability of becoming an undisputed industry standard in the near future," observes Pasricha. "In addition, Pycnogenol® has received Kosher certification for quality and generally recognized as safe (GRAS) approval for use in functional foods in 2003."

Pycnogenol® is protected by U.S. and international patents. It received the U.S. patent 5,720, 956 in 1998, which states the potency of Pycnogenol® to inhibit platelet aggregation induced by cigarette smoking without hampering the bleeding time that is characteristic of aspirin usage. Horphag was also awarded the U.S. patent 6,372,266 on Pycnogenol® for its ability to reduce pain and discomfort during menstruation.

These patents, along with various publications of scientific studies, clinical tests, and peer-reviewed journals on Pycnogenol® provide a range of intellectual property rights for Horphag.
