A new study out of Switzerland shows that Pycnogenol (pic-noj-en-all), an extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree, reduces ADHD in children.  These findings will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Nutritional Neuroscience.

In this study stress hormones where monitored in the urine of children who took the Pycnogenol and those who were given a placebo for a one month period.  It is believed that these stress hormones cause children to experience excitement, arousal and irritability.  This is the first time that a natural substance has shown to decrease these hormones.
