The most famous of the stilbenoids is resveratrol, which is found naturally in red wine and in the root of Polygonum cuspidatum, but there is another member of the stilbenoid family, found in blueberries, that surpasses even resveratrol in antioxidant capacity. It’s called pterostilbene, and while it has many similarities to resveratrol, it also has some key advantages. For one, pterostilbene’s unique structure makes it more oil-soluble than resveratrol, which increases its absorption and cellular uptake while reducing the rate of elimination from the body. Research has shown that pterostilbene has seven times the half-life of resveratrol and has a greater bioactivity in reducing the effects of oxidative stress.
The two stilbenoids are synergistic, however, with improved ability to protect against oxidative damage when taken together. Swanson’s Pterostilbene Plus with Resveratrol features pTeroPure(R), the only patented pterostilbene that has been shown in clinical studies to promote heart health by helping to maintain healthy systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels already within normal ranges. Combined with 250mg of trans-resveratrol, it delivers a potent one-two punch to knock out free radicals and protect your cardiovascular health.
Prolonged stress can exhaust the body’s natural defences leaving it susceptible to health problems.
