At the store, we make it a point to keep up to date about new supplements and research and then pass that information on to our customers, so I wanted to write about a new supplement called pterostilbene (pronounced terro-still-bean). This strangely named supplement is an incredible antioxidant.
Pterostilbene is a nutrient found in blueberries that is closely related to resveratrol. Research has even shown it to be more potent that than the well known anti-aging nutrient resveratrol, since it works in the body six times longer than resveratrol supplements, and is also better absorbed. One capsule of Carlson’s pterostilbene has the antioxidant power of 2,000 cups of blueberries- an almost unbelievable amount. Research has shown benefits for heart health, cholesterol, brain function, and more from pterostilbene.
This February we will be offering Carlson’s Pterostilbene on sale for 25% off. It’s a fantastic new supplement that we’re very excited about, so this is a great time to give it a try.
