Pterostilbene is a methylated stilbene molecule that is very similar in structure and effects to resveratrol, but is much more well absorbed when taken orally and has more potent antioxidant benefits.
Pterostilbene supplementation may help support cognitive function, healthy cholesterol levels, and cardiovascular health.
Doses as high as 3000 mg per day have failed to show signs of toxicity in animal models, but due to a lack of research at high doses in humans it is not recommended to exceed 600 mg per day.
High dosages of Pterostilbene have been shown to rarely cause an increase in LDL cholesterol, but this side effect has not been observed at typical supplementation dosages of 100-200 mg. Please consult with your physician before taking Pterostilbene.
