What is Pterostilbene?

Pterostilbene (PS) is a phenolic compound naturally found in blueberries, grapes, peanuts and various plants.1 Pterostilbene belongs to a class of compounds, called stilbenoids, that are naturally synthesised and found in various plant species.7 Since pterostilbene is more potent than resveratrol it is also known as a “better resveratrol”.

Pterostilbene has a high potential for cellular uptake, which translates into multiple health benefits.5 These health benefits, include reduced both systolic and diastolic blood pressure2, weight management by reducing fat synthesis in adipose tissue and increase its oxidation in the liver1, and improved glycemic control7. Therefore, current evidence suggests that pterostilbene may be an effective therapeutic agent to promote weight loss.

In terms of pterostilbene effects on cognitive functions, it appears to play a role in the protection against aged-related cognitive disorders.4 This has many important practical implications as supplementation of pterostilbene may be used to fight Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related cognitive disorders.

Key benefits:

  • Effective antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Anti-cancer potential
  • Neuroprotective effects

Mechanisms of action:

Compared to resveratrol, pterostilbene appears to be better absorbed following oral ingestion. In fact, a structural difference increases pterostilbene bioavailability by approximately 60% and gives it a longer half-life (105 minutes versus 14 minutes, respectively).3 Pterostilbene has a bioavailability of 80%, which is the highest among the reported stilbenoids.7

Recommended dosage of Pterostilbene:

The daily recommended dosage of pterostilbene is 300 mg.

Side effects:

Pterostilbene is a safe and generally well tolerated supplement with no reported adverse side effects even following long-term administration.3
