Pterostilbene is a dimethylated derivative of resveratrol extracted from blueberries. It is more bioavailable than regular resveratrol and is also considered to be a more potent antioxidant.
Studies have indicated that pterostilbene may support:
- Healthy aging*
- Cardiovascular health*
- Motor function*
- Cognitive function and brain cell health*
- Healthy glucose levels*
Pterostilbene and resveratrol are very similar but have one important difference: resveratrol has three hydroxyl groups, while pterostilbene only has one.
The more hydroxyl groups a molecule has, the faster it is eliminated from the body. Thanks to its single hydroxyl group, pterostilbene is able to cross cell membranes more easily and stay in the body longer for better impact.
Pterostilbene is also thought to boost the effectiveness of NMN when taken together. They work synergistically and can be likened to the operation of a car, with NMN as the fuel and pterostilbene as the accelerator pedal.
