Pterostilbene has superior biological activity, better oral bioavailability and metabolizes more slowly in the body than other antioxidant polyphenols (substances from plants that tend to prevent or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals), resulting in more prolonged antioxidant activity. Along with a number of other effects, pterostilbene has shown great promise for supporting heart health, cognitive function and anti-aging.
