undefined   What is pTeroPure®?

pTeroPure®, also known as pterostilbene (pronounced tero-STILL-bean), is closely related to resveratrol. Although similar in structure, pterostilbene offers the following advantages over resveratrol:

  • Superior bioavailability
  • Significantly longer half-life
  • Greater cellular uptake
  • Greater oral absorption and metabolic stability
Why is pterostilbene so interesting?

Pterostilbene activates a very specific nuclear receptor known as PPAR-alpha. Nuclear receptors are proteins that activate gene expression. PPAR-alpha is activated during fasting states or the prolonged periods without food. Once activated, PPAR-alpha controls lipid metabolism among other essential functions.

Fasting and calorie restriction have been heavily researched as a possible approach to extend lifespan in lower mammals. In this regard, pterostilbene may offer pro-longevity benefits by activating the PPAR-alpha nuclear receptor.
