Pterostilbene [tero-STILL-bean] is a powerful flavonoid antioxidant for healthy blood sugar, cholesterol metabolism, weight management, cognitive function, memory, nerves and mitochondrial health.*
It has been traditionally used as a heart tonic, blood sugar and cholesterol management, and occasional heartburn relief.*
Wellness Resources Pterostilbene contains Silbinol®, a standardized, natural source of trans-pterostilbene. It contains 100mg trans-pterosilbene per capsule.
What is Pterostilbene?
Pterostilbene is a phenolic compound found in plants. More specifically, it is a stilbenoid similar to resveratrol, but has a slightly different chemical structure with two methoxy groups attached, i.e. a methylated form of the resveratrol compound. This makes pterostilbene up to four times more absorbable with better bioavailability and more biologically active than resveratrol.*
Pterostilbene is lipophilic which allows it to dissolve into fats. This is especially important for your brain, liver, and cell membranes which are organs and tissues with a high fat content.*
Pterostilbene is naturally found in blueberries, grapes, grapevines, peanuts, almonds, and the Pterocarpus marsupium tree. Our naturally-sourced trans-pterostilbene is obtained from the heartwood and bark of the Indian Kino tree (Pterocarpus marsupium), native to India and Sri Lanka.
This compound has been used since 400 AD in Ayurvedic medicine. Much of its historical use relates to support for blood sugar and cholesterol management, as a tonic for the heart, and even occasional heartburn relief. Traditionally, in order to feel better, natives who lived in a region of Madhya Pradesh, drank out of cups carved from the Indian Kino wood to help their blood sugar health.*
Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, Uric Acid
Pterostilbene has many health benefits. Metabolically, pterostilbene helps suppress blood sugar build-up in the liver and block the absorption of sugar from the intestinal tract. It aids in breaking down sugar and supports energy production, while reducing fat accumulation.*
It also aids in uric acid metabolism and providing antioxidant support to the kidneys affected by blood sugar and liver metabolism. Animal studies show that it aids cholesterol metabolism by supporting healthy cholesterol levels, triglycerides, LDL and VLDL levels.*
Sirutin Activator and Cell Protector
In addition to these metabolic uses, pterostilbene is used for it’s “fountain of youth” benefits like resveratrol. This is because pterostilbene is a natural sirtuin activator. Sirtuins are types of proteins that directly impact the SIRT genes and cellular aging, DNA expression that affect quality aging and longevity. Activation of the sirtuin proteins and SIRT genes are linked with lifespan, cell survival, healthy mitochondria, insulin regulation and neuroprotection.*
Advanced recent research shows that pterostilbene is an effective apoptotic and autophagic agent that helps cells with the natural clean-up processes to remove DNA and cellular damage. It provides strong protection to cellular aging and biological stress.*
Pterostilbene pushes anti-aging and sirtuin support to an advanced level. These benefits combined with its functional role in aiding blood sugar and cholesterol metabolism and high bioavailability make it a stellar phytochemical antioxidant.*
We now offer a standardized extract of pterostilbene at 100 milligrams (mg) per capsule. One cup of blueberries typically provides about 20 micrograms (mcg) of pterostilbene.
Human studies in randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled intervention trials show that pterostilbene is a safe, well-tolerated nutrient for your health.*
