Stone pine has a positive effect on the circulation, sleep, general health and the vegetative nervous system.
Studies have proven what people have believed for centuries: Sleeping in a stone pine bed is particularly restful, which is especially important in this day and age, when sleeplessness is a growing problem, throughout Europe.
The HUMAN RESEARCH Institute of Health Technology and Prevention Research (HRI) in Weiz, Austria, discovered that the specific components in stone pine result in an amazing reduction in heart rate at night, reducing the burden on the body by reducing the number of heartbeats per day by about 3500, which corresponds to one hour of work for the heart.
Last but not least, stone pine also has a positive effect on weather-related complaints, harmonises the circulatory system and enhances general well-being; leaving you feeling well rested, relaxed and ideally prepared for the various challenges of everyday life.
These physiological findings coincide with the subjective impression of the test subjects, who reported feeling much more rested, feeling generally fitter and, amazingly, being “socially more extroverted” than beforehand. This may be one reason why country inns in this region were panelled with stone pine in the past. Not only does stone pine make you more sociable, but also more communicative.
