I have recently ordered the alternative large package and I would like to ask you the following.
I have the Peyronie disease and for other reasons I am taking a supplement of (Solgar) called pycnogenol. If I have well understood this product is related to collagen. Can you please advise me if this is good for the Peyronie's disease or bad and whether I should stop taking it or not?
I am very familiar with pycnogenol, which is an extract primarily from the bark of a pine tree, pinus pinaster, although the same pycnogenol can removed from peanut skin, grape seed, and witch hazel bark. The reason that it is not included in the PDI lineup of therapies is that it has not been subjected to any testing for Peyronie's disease that I can determine. Not everything possible that could be remotely effective for Peyronie's treatment is included in our PDI treatment concept; only those things that have received a sufficient level of testing and produced some positive research findings but insufficient to be considered a complete cure. Pycnogenol has not been tested at all in that manner and so will not be considered for inclusion until it is.
When you consider how to go about treating your Peyronie's condition you have to determine that it is not the scar you are treating but your total body and your ability to heal and repair the PD scar. The best route for Peyronie's disease treatment is different for each man. This is why there are so many variations of the different plans that are being used.
Pycnogenol is often mentioned as being effective for treatment of many diverse problems: asthma, allergies, skin problems, elevated blood pressure, reduced blood circulation, muscle soreness, pain, arthritis, menopausal symptoms, painful menstruation, diabetes, retinopathy and erectile dysfunction, to name just a few. It is also commonly used by those who are interested in its anti-aging benefits.
It is your decision to continue taking it or not. TRH
