The recommended daily dose of pterostilbene usually ranges from 50 to 250 mg. However, it is advised to start the supplementation from a lower dose and then gradually increase it. It is best to divide the dose into two portions – one in the morning and the second in the afternoon.
Pterostilbene is a modified form of resveratrol which is better absorbed by the body. It is a compound which may have a beneficial impact on detoxification process of the body, prevents the development of cancer and influences mitochondrial function, fat burning process and the function of nerve and muscle cells, which may be important to athletes.
Studies have shown that pterostilbene is a strong antioxidant and that is why it may help reduce oxidative stress in the body caused by oxygen free radicals. It inhibits their oxidation by increasing the secretion of antioxidant enzymes.
Scientists have also demonstrated that pterostilbene may have a major anti-cancer effect. It may inhibit the proliferation of melanocytes and block enzymes which activate carcinogens. It probably blocks the formation of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) – a hormone involved in the initiation of an inflammatory response. Because of that, we can presume that it will be an effective anti-inflammatory agent.
According to some sources, pterostilbene may stimulate the activity of fat-sensing complexes (caloric restriction), which results in a decrease in blood lipid and sugar levels and thus promotes body fat reduction. Results of one study have also shown that pterostilbene helps increase muscle gain and strength because it promotes anabolic processes.
