Pinecone Extract?

2 posts in this topic

Anyone ever try it?


Pine Cone Extract

PineExtra™ is an authentic polyphenol polysaccharide lignin extract similair to that of Sakagmi's NaOH extraction. It is extremely potent at 10 mg per 100 kilogram body weight. The one ounce bottle contains 500 milligrams / 50 doses. PineExtra is currently been studied as an adjuvant (a pharmacological agent added to a drug to increase or aid its effect). These bioactive phytochemicals have shown in clinical studies to stimulate an immune response most notably is an increased antibody production.

Antitumor, antiviral and immunopotentiating activities of pine cone extracts: potential medicinal efficacy of natural and synthetic lignin-related materials (review).

Several antitumor substances that effectively inhibited the growth of ascites and solid tumor cells transplanted in mice were isolated from pine cone NaOH extract by acid- and ethanol-precipitation. These antitumor substances were also potent antiviral agents against human immunodeficiency virus, herpes simplex virus and influenza virus; they induced antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcal aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Candida albicans, and induced antiparasite activity against Hymenolepis nana in mice. Chemical analysis of these substances by IR, UV, NMR, ESR and partition chromatography on cellulose-TLC plate disclosed that they had lignin-related structures complexed with sugars or polysaccharides. Chlorinated decomposition of the lignin portion significantly reduced their antiviral activity. In agreement with this, the antiviral activity of synthesized lignins prepared by polymerization of phenylpropanoid precursors was comparable to that of the undecomposed counterparts of the pine cone extract. Acid hydrolysis of the polysaccharide portion significantly reduced the ability of the substances to induce antitumor and antimicrobial activities in mice. With an appropriate eliciting agent, intravenous administration of natural lignified substances transiently induced endogenous production of a cytotoxic factor (possibly tumor necrosis factor) in normal mice. Their priming activity was significantly higher than that of their component units or degradation products. These data suggest the importance of conjugating lignins with polysaccharides for in vivo expression of various kinds of immunopotentiating activity. As possible explanations for their induction of a variety of immunopotentiating activities, these natural and synthetic lignins stimulated macrophage NBT-reducing activity, polymorphonuclear cell (PMN) iodination and splenocyte DNA synthesis and inhibited poly (ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase, RNA-dependent DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase) and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase activities.

Pine cone extract

Yes I have been taking it for about a year now.

Pine cone extract seems to work best for me when combined with Acyclovir.

      You are talking about science, and we don't need believers in science. The skepticism is healthy. Whoever you are, we want you to succeed. When you start your campaign, I will donate, and I also volunteer my services as a software developer pro bono, though I'm not sure how much use you have for that. Understand that most members of this forum are medical laymen — myself included — and although your posts sound convincing, it'd be unwise for any of us to inject mystery fluid into our spines because an anonymous Internet user told us to. Please send a direct message if you wish to communicate privately.

      Thanks Free73!

      Agreed! So, how do we go from anonymity to working as a group? Maybe we can contact those we are friends with outside of the hive. Or, divide those interested by location. Or create another website.

      I agree with both replies. I too had a mini break down, and cried all day for days. But I started to research like crazy and it really did help me come to terms with my diagnosis. Not only that but it made me feel like I had some control over it. You will get there.  Give yourself time and keep coming back to this site, it is full of great advice and support. I'm sorry you are going through this.

      @JBnATL, thanks for the clarification. That's great to know. I'll almost certainly reach out to her. @Sanguine108, I have been tracking my food intake carefully for a couple of months in MyFitnessPal.  Though my nutrition isn't optimized for my current goals, I don't think there are any smoking guns in there wrt to this.. @Free73, thank you!  Great information. I think you've hit on several major points.  The hydrocortisone, in combination with the major change and 'shock' to the system, as well as general 'stress', has compromised my immune system, or at least pissed-off the HSV..  I guess it's not uncommon to see an increase in outbreaks during periods of stress and change to the body such as these.. My exercise routine is evolving as I'm still a beginner. I started in July and have been averaging ~4 workouts a week, ~100x10 sets,reps/wk.. I've been hampered lately by a strained pec minor a week or so ago which has impacted most of my upper-body work. Also, my body probably sees the additional energy demand as even more stressful due to my adrenal/RT3 issues and reduced caloric intake.  I set my levels in MFP and Garmin Connect about as low as they would let me and I'm still almost always way under.. Since you've been working out all along, what do you think has caused you increased outbreaks?

      Well someone's gotta get this train rolling... we can talk all we want but if the money isn't collected then nothing gets done. As it stands, no one is even working on what we need specifically. Everyone is trying to cure eye diseases, which are important, but I think a more pertinent concern is genital hsv. So, unless we get moving with this, we're gonna be stuck with it for life. Even the groups that ARE working on it, have other priorities and you can see it on their pipelines.

      We all go through storms in life. Some more difficult than others, I have been through quite a few them including H.  During these storms don't focus on the darkness but focus on the light guiding our path. While painful I believe we come out better at the end. And yes I am overwhelmed by the power of the light. not the darkness.

      I think an initial breakdown is normal to an extent I think most of us go through a mini version. I know I did, but I'm a curious person by nature I like to investigate and research things that I know little about. I became slightly obsessed with HSV 2 and spent hours a day on my phone researching then clearing my browser history for added security lol. But I quickly learned how common it is and what it really is and that helped me accept it and begin to move forward. I suggest you do as much research as possible on this virus to ease your mind and help you better understand it.
