Jarrow Formulas has added a high-potency pterostilbene supplement to its product line, made with ChromaDex’s (Irvine, CA) pTeroPure trans-pterostilbene. The product is aimed to support healthy aging.

According to Jarrow:

“Pterostilbene is found naturally in blueberries, grapes and the bark of the Indian Kino Tree (Pterocarpus marsuplum). Also called dimethylresveratrol, it is a member of the class of nutrients known as stilbenes, which also includes resveratrol. In comparison with resveratrol, pterostilbene is both more stable and more active, exhibiting greater bioavailability. Pterostilbene has demonstrated positive results in areas such as cardiovascular and brain health. Research suggests pterostilbene may mimic many of the benefits of calorie-restricted diets by activating the sirtuin pathway associated with longevity.

The pterostilbene source used by Jarrow Formulas is the subject of several ongoing scientific trials. These include clinical research being conducted at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in connection with the plant compound’s effects with regard to cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammatory responses and oxidative stress.”
