A Brief History of Pine Bark Extract
Native people have, over thousands of years, used plants as a source of healing. The use of plant extracts in healing is gaining momentum again, as modern western medicine begins to understand, accept and embrace what ancient civilisations have known for centuries.
In the winter of 1535, a French explorer named Jacques Cartier found his ship ice-bound in the St. Lawrence River, in what is now Quebec. Having no fruits or vegetables, the crew became ill with scurvy, a disease resulting from vitamin C deficiency. Several had already died when a Native American told them how to prepare a tea made from tree bark. Many crew members recovered and attributed miraculous qualities to the tea. It is thought now that the tea was prepared from the bark of the Maritime Pine (arbor vitae) tree and that it contained large amounts of vitamin C.(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Cartier)
It is natural extracts such as these which form the basis of Arborvitae’s supplements.
