Pterostilbene, as a dimethylated stilbenoid derivative of resveratrol, belongs to the group of phytoalexins protecting plants against pathogens and infections. In nature the stilbenoid can be found in certain plants and fruits, such as almond, peanuts, blueberries, cranberries, and grapes. While resveratrol is more well-known and popular counterpart, new studies indicate pterostilbene may be more efficient as a brain boosting agent. Another factor that makes the compound interesting is that it exhibits a 4 times higher bioavailability compared to resveratrol, which means you only need to take minimal amounts of it for it to be effective.
New research suggests stilbenoids, including resveratrol and pterostilbene, could have an anti-aging effect and may be anti-cancerogenic. As of today, the most supported uses for pterostilbene in studies appears to be as an antioxidant, to improve cognitive function, control cholesterol levels, and for reducing blood sugar levels.
