Pterostilbene is an Extra-Potent Version of Resveratrol

NAD boosters might work synergistically with supplements like resveratrol to help reinvigorate mitochondria and ward off diseases of aging.

Elysium is banking on this potential synergy—its NR-containing supplement includes a resveratrol-like substance called pterostilbene (pronounced tero-STILL-bean), which is found in blueberries and grapes.

Why pterostilbene instead of resveratrol?

While resveratrol has hogged the anti-aging spotlight over the past decade, unsung researchers have quietly shown that pterostilbene is a kind of extra-potent version of resveratrol.

The pterostilbene molecule is nearly identical to resveratrol’s except for a couple of differences that make it more “bioavailable” (animal studies indicate that about four times as much ingested pterostilbene gets into the bloodstream as resveratrol).

Test-tube and rodent studies also suggest that pterostilbene is more potent than resveratrol when it comes to improving brain function, warding off various kinds of cancer and preventing heart disease.

Elysium isn’t the only pterostilbene vendor. In fact, ChromaDex also offers pterostilbene for supplements separately from Niagen. – David Stipp

ANALYSIS OF NOTABLE BRIDGE 1 LONGEVITY OPTIONS

 

Pterostilbene

Pterostilbene is nearly identical to resveratrol but is considered to be more potent.

It is a natural dietary compound and the primary antioxidant component of blueberries.

It’s also claimed to be significantly more bio-available than resveratrol so is better absorbed by the body.

The benefits of pterostilbene have not yet been proven in clinical trials but preliminary studies are ongoing and reportedly promising.

It may be too early to start using it as a regular supplement, but it’s more interesting than resveratrol and the potential benefits make it worth keeping an eye on as more information becomes available.
