RED PINE PHYTONCIDE
It is an overall designation of self-protective complexes that plants produce against diseases and harmful insects or germs.
More than 5000 kinds of natural volatile organic compounds are
contained in the Red Pine Oil (Red Pine Phytoncide).
The pine needle oil contains diverse active ingredients which have strong pharmacological actions, such as terpenes, vitamins, essential amino acids, non-essential amino acids, flavonoids, and polyphenols. When pine ingredients were extracted in Korea, China, Japan, and other Southeast Asian countries, it was determined that the Red Pine has the best pharmacological action of polyphenol and terpene oils, which are the main indices. It is being recognized by the academic world that the four seasons, and pedological and climatic characteristics of Korea determine the active ingredients that enable pharmacological actions of terpenes, polyphenol, etc. It would appear that the difference between Red Pines and other pines is dependent on their regions of distribution rather than their species. Red Pine needle oil figures in medical literature in China and Korea, going back thousands of years. Ancient texts such as Lee Sijin's 'Bonchogangmok', and Heo Jun's 'Donguibogam', teach that pine needles are very effective for curing diseases. Thus they were used as medicinal plants for antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and antiphlogistic effects.
