- Associated with anti-ageing effects (disease prevention, reduced inflammation, decreased mortality).
- Higher bioavailability than other forms.
- Recognised anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune-protective benefits.
Pterostilbene has anti-inflammatory, anti-neoplastic and antioxidant properties. It acts via fundamental biological interactions to control gene expression and modulate enzyme activity. It has a beneficial effect on the genes involved in the development of cancer, atherosclerosis, diabetes and inflammation.
Thus it is a nutritional supplement of the first order that is easy to use, either on its own or in combination with resveratrol, with which it acts synergistically on longevity genes, enhancing resveratrol's anti-ageing benefits and preventing or combatting numerous disorders harmful to human health. PteroPure' is the only patented, clinically-studied form of trans-pterostilbene. Its purity is over 99%.
Pterostilbene (4'-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxystilbene) is a nutrient from the same family as resveratrol. It is actually a double methylated version of resveratrol which means:
This valuable substance has been the subject of numerous studies emphasising its considerable benefits to human health. These studies have focused on the “trans” isomer of pterostilbene. Pterostilbene is naturally present in blueberries but at levels much too low for it to be fully active and exert all its benefits. You would actually need almost 100 kilos or so of blueberries to obtain a clinically relevant amount of pterostilbene.
Given the multiple benefits of pterostilbene, this bioactive compound also features in the formulations of potent antioxidant blends such as the anti-ageing product Resveratrol Synergy. Along with pterostilbene, this contains trans-resveratrol, the active form of resveratrol, polydatin, a resveratrol glucoside, and fisetin, which has a stabilising effect on resveratrol. Discover too, the formulation AntiOxidant Synergy which combines 12 natural extracts with antioxidant properties, including an extract of Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb.) standardised to 98% resveratrol.

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defences, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Ageing is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the ageing process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
