What is Pterostilbene?

You will commonly hear me brag about one particular ingredient in several of VIIVA’s products: Pterostilbene. 

But what is pterostilbene? It isn’t an ingredient most people know my name, but its health benefits are impressive and worth learning about.

Pterostilbene Definition

Pterostilbene is a highly bioavailable polyphenol scientifically proven to activate anti-aging mechanisms in your body for enhanced DNA repair, longevity, metabolism, immunity, anti-inflammation, organ health, and more.

But what is a polyphenol? Polyphenols are micronutrients found in plants and are known for being powerful antioxidants. 

One popular polyphenol you have probably heard of before is resveratrol. Resveratrol is one of the most well-known polyphenols out there and is known to help reduce inflammatory response, promote longevity, and protect your heart and circulatory system.

Pterostilbene has gained popularity for being as beneficial for the body as resveratrol or even better! Both polyphenols are chemically similar, but because of pterostilbene’s structure, it actually has better bioavailability than resveratrol.

This fact has caused pterostilbene to be called “the next generation of resveratrol” and it has become a hot topic of study.

Health Benefits

Consuming pterostilbene may help:

Support Heart Health

Pterostilbene may help reduce cholesterol. This in turn supports a healthy heart! It also may help fight oxidative stress which reduces the risk of heart disease.

Protect Against Aging

Pterostilbene is a powerful tool for fighting inflammation. This may help prevent age-related diseases, like Alzheimer’s. 

Prevent Cancer

Because Pterostilbene is a powerful antioxidant, it helps fight free radical and reduce oxidative stress. This may help fight and prevent cancer.

Do you want to add pterostilbene to your daily routine? You can find it in VRevive, NMN Premium, and the entire VIIVA Skin Care Collection.
