About White Pine
The peace tree, White Pine, is largely found in Northern America. It is said to belong to an evergreen family of Panacea. It is scientifically called "Pinus Strobus." White Pine covered vast geographical areas of the world. It is distributed across America, Canada, England, and the Czech Republic. It was identified as the provincial tree for the states of Michigan, Miami, and Missouri. White Pine was greatly significant to Canadians in terms of economy, history, and culture, and this, in turn, made it the Ontario official tree in 1984.
Still, on this, White Pine started migrating to the west. It was brought into the United Kingdom by George Weymouth, which made the English people named it after him as "Weymouth Pine." The medicinal compounds of White Pine went through exploration, and beneficial discoveries were identified as regards the use of White Pine as medicine. Compounds like pycnogenol, resin, polyphenol, and sub-groups of flavonoids were discovered in the White Pine extract. These special compounds were revealed to have medicinal value that worked against inflammation, bacterial infections, and skin reactions.
This has taken center stage in modern medicine, with many making use of it more than it was used back then. Modern medicine was supposed to center stage, taking out the use of white pine, but it has increased in popularity, helping with many digestive complications even till this day.
