Many people consider the smell of pine needles alone to be an uplifting, cheerful scent. In addition to this, several studies have researched the effects of pine needles on mood.

The study concluded by theorizing that pine needle extract’s flavonoids, which are believed to fight off free radicals and balance cell activity, positively affected the rats’ mood.
In short, pine needles may support our mood due to their unique flavonoids and appealing scent.
3. May help with Weight Maintenance
Recent studies have shown that pine needles have an anti-obesity effect. One study divided rats into four groups with various kinds of diets (high in fat, low in fat, etc.).
Some groups were also given pine needle supplementation in the form of pine needle water extract. The groups that drank pine needle water lost visceral fat mass and weight over the course of the six-week study.
As a result of this study, pine needles are now being looked into as a possible supplement to aid in weight loss and maintenance efforts.
4. May help Arthritis and Joint Health
Traditionally, pine needles have been used as a way to soothe arthritic joints by relieving pain. Some countries, like Switzerland, even filled mattresses with pine needles with the belief that it would help sore joints while we slept.
Science Daily recently reported that pine needles and pine bark have been found to have both pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects. In the future, scientists are looking into developing foods with pine to possibly treat arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Pine needles are believed to be antioxidant-rich. As a result, several studies have surveyed the effects of pine needles on cancer specifically.
One study choose pine needles to study after looking at their long, rich history as a medicinal food in Korea. To research the health benefits of pine needles, mice with Sarcoma, a soft tissue cancer, were fed pine needle powder and studied.
Throughout the study, the mice given pine needle powder had higher rates of tumor suppression, which is credited to the antitumor, antioxidant properties within the pine needle powder.
