Trans-Pterostilbene (pronounced terro-STILL-bean), a resveratrol-like ingredient that supports brain and heart health, is now on offer from Jarrow Formulas. Found naturally in blueberries, grapes and the bark of the Indian Kino Tree, pterostilbene is a member of the same class of nutrients as resveratrol, known as stilbenes. According to the company, research suggests that this nutrient may mimic the benefits of a calorie-restricted diet, by activating the sirtuin pathway associated with longevity.
