    The source of Pycnogenol is the Cambium Layer of the Pinaster Pine. For those not familiar with the Cambium layer of tree bark, it is the layer that squirrel strip the bark of trees to eat this layer that is dense in anti-oxidant, and calcium. It is also sweet as it contains glucose, fructose, and sucrose. The product likely isn't sweet. PYC that has been studied for 40 years. http://abc.herbalgram.org/site/DocSe...pdf?docID=1741

    From study link in prior post:

    In summary, we provided an evidence that 9 weeks of 40 mg/kg Pycnogenol® treatment to osteopenic rats resulted in a remarkable decrease in bone turnover biomarkers
    What this means is that Pycnogenol decreased bone loss in rats put into menopause.

    Estrogen is a key supporter of calcium uptake, so when menopause occurs the level of Estrogen drops in the body, and the uptake of Calcium does so also.

    For this source to decrease bone loss after menopause is nothing short of amazing!

    This page is the summary of above PDF study file in post #1 on the polyphenols in PYCNOGENOL supporting bone mineralization in female rats without the normal support which estrogen provides in this process.

    http://europepmc.org/articles/PMC4565266

    If your squirrel has MBD this would be a supportive addition to the MBD calcium treatment, as well as following this treatment.

    Using a non needle ML syringe, add (0.01 ml.) = (1/100th of 1 ml) to wet or moist foods like yogurt, baked squash, or applesauce in the diet.

    Just don't heat this source, as heat damages the polyphenols.
