"Pycnogenol (French Maritime Pine Bark extract) is one of the main active ingredients in Arborvitae and is a natural plant extract originating from the bark of the maritime pine that grows along the coast of southwest France," he said.

Mr Howell said there were more than 400 published studies and review articles ensuring the safety and efficacy of Pycnogenol as an ingredient.

He said former cricketer Mike Whitney was a fan of the supplement.

"I started using Arborvitae because my cricketing career left me with constant annoying aches and pains in my shoulder, knees and lower back," Mr Whitney said in a product testimonial.

"Once I started taking Arborvitae, I noticed an improvement within a few weeks.

"It started with less pain and more mobility in my shoulder and lower back. After several months, I now have no pain and less inflammation in my knees as well. I am continuing to take Arborvitae as I find it also gives me more energy and a feeling of wellbeing."
