As of 2022, people are more and more at risk every summer to become dehydrated, due to ever changing and sudden high temperatures.
The increasingly Mediterranean-like temperatures as well as actual holidays abroad may well favour contact with Maritime and other Pine species. Pine needle extract is antihistamine, inhibitory of immune system cytokines and prostaglandins and antioxidant and its effects might be compared to those of cortisone in reducing inflammation.
With Pine extract, a safe and adequare dosage may well enhance well-being and be an additional option for those allergic to standard drugs, yet the dosage is to be established individually. Anybody can make Pine needle tea and drink two cups a day safely, so long that the Pine species is well idenftified from other conifers, which may even be poisonous.
Alternatively, one may try one of many Pycnogenol supplements from their favourite health shop or request a Herbal Medicine consultation, which may well include other helpful herbs under personal supervision.
Pine essential oil can only be recommended at no more than one or two drops, because essential oils are solvents, which are often source of allergic reactions in sensitive people, who may have to avoid essential oils altogether.
