Product Description

A double-methylated anti-oxidant found in fruits that protects short-term memory. reduces glucose in the blood, lowers cortisol and has anti-cancer properties.
 
Our 99% pure Pterostilbene is a double-methylated antioxidant found in blueberries, cranberries and grapes, that researchers are finding protects the hippocampus area of the brain that is critical to memory, reduces blood serum levels of glucose, raises insulin levels, lowers cortisol levels, and has anti-cancer properties.*

Pterostilbene may help improve and protect memeory due to its unique ability as an anti-oxidant to cross the blood-brain barrier and localize in the hippocampus (the brain's memory center) where it may offer protection against free radical damage. In addition to this, it can help protect against glycation damage to tissues throughout the body caused by excessive levels of glucose. Insulin resistance (which can be caused by chronic intake of excessive levels of sugar) is linked now to both diabetes and Alzheimers. In Alzheimers, it is believed insulin resistance of neurons causes them to stave and die. Pterostilbene has been shown to lower blood glucose levels in rats by as much as 56 percent, while simultaneously raising insulin and hemoglobin levels to near normal.

A study out of Tufts University on pterostilbene supplementation in elderly rats showed that pterostilbene conferred significant memory improvement as well.(1)The authors theorized that the memory improvement may be due to pterostilbene's unique ability as an anti-oxidant to cross the blood-brain barrier and co-localize in the hippocampus (the brain's memory center) where it may offer protection against free radical damage.(2)

Pterostilbene has been shown to lower blood glucose levels in rats by as much as 56 percent, while simultaneously raising insulin and hemoglobin levels to near normal levels.(3)

Emerging science suggests that pterostilbene may have revealed a mechanism for pterostilbene's potential anti-cancer properties. Using mice cells, they demonstrated that pterostilbene potently inhibits an enzyme called cytochrome P450.(4) Cytochromes are found within the cells of animals, plants, bacteria, and other microorganisms that transport electrons. Theyre also a factor in peoples varying response to drugs and toxins entering their bodies. Cytochrome P450 enzymes activate a variety of compounds known as "procarinogens" which can turn substances such as cigarette smoke and pesticides into carinogens. So inihibiting this enzyme may prevent potentially harmful substances from turning into carcinogens.

Recent research also indicates it has efficacy against Candida biofilms.(5)
