Anti-aging effects found through Pine Bark Extract

Torrance, CA – The results are in from several internal studies researching the effects of TOYO-FVG™ Pine Bark Extract when administered to promote overall dermal health. Reducing the signs of aging, promoting collagen production and increasing dermal microcirculation, this OPC-rich extract harvested from the French maritime pine (Pinus maritima) has been shown to possess astounding antioxidant effects.

Both human clinical studies and a comprehensive ORAC report have confirmed the effective use of TOYO-FVG to promote overall dermal health. In one study, over 70% of participants saw significant improvement in signs of aging including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits included the reduced appearance of age spots (lentigo). TOYO-FVG was also proven to significantly promote collagen production.

Studies have also found TOYO-FVG to be a very versatile raw ingredient when it comes to product development and manufacturing. “It conveys its benefits both in topical treatments and as an oral supplement,” said Mario Kahn, Chief Marketing Officer of the California-based Toyo Bio-Pharma™, which is offering the product to the US Market on behalf of its parent company, Toyo Shinyaku, in Japan. “There’s a lot of promise for using TOYO-FVG in comprehensive two-part beauty programs--both as a cream and a daily nutritional tablet. This is truly natural beauty from the inside out.”

Through a patented hot-water extract process, Toyo Shinyaku is able to guarantee that TOYO-FVG is indeed all-natural with no chemical media used in its manufacturing. As the market leader in Japan for pine bark extract sales, Toyo Shinyaku is pleased to make this product available to American manufacturers. “Consumers are growing more and more aware of alternative options in beauty and dermal health. But they want products that are both natural and proven to be efficacious,” Kahn said. He added that, in light of TOYO-FVG’s superior efficacy and bioavailablity, its recommended dosage is less than other products.

Having extensively researched the benefits of TOYO-FVG for both oral consumption and topical applications, Toyo Bio-Pharma is willing to share its own scientific research and compelling results to support product development. TOYO-FVG is used by some of the leading companies in Japan including: Suntory for a tea beverage, Taisho Pharmaceuticals for a line of skin care products and Lion for a line of oral care products.
