What Is Enzogenol®?

Radiata Pine

Enzogenol® is one of the main players in 55+ and it’s an enormously exciting supplement for our brains, our hearts and our overall wellness.

The more research it undergoes, the more benefits its shown to have.

The reason we’ve included it in 55+ is that – at any stage of life but most particularly post-menopause – our brain and heart need all the support they can get to keep us well. Researching the best partners for this we discovered Enzogenol® which is packed with a highly concentrated mixture of plant compounds called flavonoids. These flavonoids have been shown to boost the body’s antioxidant defenses and help its natural healing processes.

Where does Enzogenol® come from?

Enzogenol® is a plant extract derived from the bark of New Zealand radiata pine trees. It’s extracted using an environmentally friendly water-only process.

A Short Lesson On Free Radicals & Antioxidants

Antioxidants are crucial to our health and to reduce cellular damage. As we age, and as we’re exposed to more and more toxins, stress and ill health, free radicals are formed. Free radicals are like little gremlins that have the ability to cause loads of damage in our bodies and create oxidative stress. Any wellness pro will recommend loading up with antioxidants because they have the ability to neutralise free radicals.

Oxidative stress is a major player in the formation and progression of disease. It also plays an important role in the ageing process. During oxidative stress, the body can be overwhelmed by the production of free radicals, which can damage cell molecules and destroy cellular function. This can lead to increased inflammation and loss of organ function, which contributes to chronic disease, ageing and the destruction of organs and tissues.

Are you with me so far? I’m trying to keep it as simple as possible because the science-y stuff can cause cases of eye glazing – lol.

What Are The Benefits Of Taking Enzogenol®?

There are still lots of studies going on but in the research to date – for our purposes – Enzogenol ® has been shown to support brain, heart and eye health.

Brain Health

Enzogenol® has been found to be beneficial to the brain particularly in relation to memory and cognition. One of the studies also showed it has a calming effect (we like that). Studies link.

Heart Health

Nutritional research has shown that when it comes to cardiovascular health Enzogenol® supports healthy blood vessels, blood viscosity and blood pressure. Studies link.


You’ve heard of telomeres? They sit on the ends of chromosomes and look similar to the cap ends of shoelaces. These ‘caps’ shorten with age and some studies are showing that Enzogenol® can reduce the occurrence of this. Studies link.

Overall Benefits

All in all, the compounds in Enzogenol® are on a par with the wonderful health benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet packed with fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds. So by supplementing with it daily, you’re donning a suit of armour. Studies link.

Great News!

Isn’t that great news for Meno-She’s? Especially those of us who are forgetting why we’ve walked into a room or feel bouts of frequent brain fog! And a calmer brain sounds like heaven to me. I don’t know about you but improvements in cognition and alertness are definitely on my wishlist.

The antioxidant power is something to be revered too. Remember the little lesson we had in free radicals and oxidative stress? Those things attack our DNA, but antioxidants can act like the defence warriors and battle with them. And the more protected our DNA is the healthier we are.
