Hey Tim,


Let me get you to the correct Category for this Question. Somehow you were put in the Android Category. You'll receive an email as soon as an Expert in the proper Category responds.




Received your question and my research has come up with some benefits of using bark for other things like what you mentioned.

Researchers believe that the pine bark extract can treat various health problems. The pine bark extract may potentially treat high blood pressure, asthma and heart disease. A few cancer drugs are also extracted from bark. Plant extract from pine bark shows promise in relieving pain and improving physical function in patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee. Pine bark has been used as a foodstuff for thousands of years in human history as its extract is marketed as Flavangenol.

Bark has become a necessity in the production of clothing and recreational objects. It is woven into capes, blankets, rain ponchos, baskets and mats.

Bark is most commonly used to make baskets which were woven together to create baskets, containers, and an assortment of other objects.

Pine bark is used to help purify water as it is a renewable resource and an alternative to using activated carbon to remove pesticides and other chemicals from water.
