This support of reduced oxidative stress and augmentation of inflammatory response are believed to be major contributors to supporting a healthy and long life.
Resveratrol and Pterostilbene are widely believed to support key healthy aging functions. They do that by promoting ATP production (your cell’s energy source), and a healthy mitochondria energy function.
They do this through activating AMPK, a protein that stimulates SIRT1 - referred to as ”the human anti-aging gene”.
The promoted expression of this special gene may support longevity, healthy aging, weight loss, skin health and more.

Resveratrol and pterostilbene supplements are often taken for their supposed brain boosting benefits, but they are also associated with improved energy endurance, promoting a healthy inflammatory response, support of healthy blood glucose levels, and promoting healthy aging and youthfulness, supporting against DNA damage and cell damage, weight-control, and with having cardiovascular benefits.
Pterostilbene is chemically related to resveratrol. They differing only at their methoxy and hydroxy groups. Although they are both powerful antioxidants it is thought that their benefits relating to healthy aging are due to other mechanisms.
Of the two molecules, the vast majority of lab research has been performed on resveratrol, largely because it is a key component of wine. It is able to indirectly activate sirtuins messengers, which are themselves induced during fasting and are associated with longevity. It has also been shown to have positive effects in the support of healthy blood flow, inflammation, insulin sensitivity, and of the heart.
More recently, many researchers have focused their effects on understanding pterostilbene, which itself is a derivative of resveratrol, but has better absorption levels and greater antioxidant potency; it has been linked to promoting healthy cognition and supporting healthy glucose and cholesterol levels.
There is presently much more known about how resveratrol works, so although the supplement has already been shown to have many desirable aspects it is more usual to take resveratrol with pterostilbene in the world of nootropics.
The stilbenoid resveratrol (3,5,4′-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is naturally found in grapes, and its presence as one of the key antioxidative components of wine has made it of great interest. For those of you who may not know, wine is strongly associated with good health in France and Spain, and is thought to be one of the main reasons why the French people generally have a healthy heart despite consuming a rich diet (the French Paradox). It is a natural phenol phytoalexin acting to protect grapes from infection by the necrotrophic fungus Botrytis cinerea.
Because of its presence in wine, the compound is often referred to as red wine extract, but in addition to wines it is also found in blueberries, mulberries, lingonberries/partridgeberries, raspberries, and in plants belonging to the Senna genus.
Supporting Healthy Blood Flow
General Blood Flow has been shown to increase at low dosages of resveratrol  and cerebral blood flow (with no associated mental fatigue) and oxygen at larger doses.
With regards to general cardioprotective effects, prolonged supplementation with 10 mg resveratrol has been shown to lead to support healthy endothelial function, left ventricular diastolic function, and levels of LDL-cholesterol.
Trans-resveratrol administered orally as single doses of 250 mg and 500 mg was found to support cerebral blood flow and hemodynamics (differences in oxygenation of hemoglobin) after 45 minutes of absorption in a dose dependent manner. These randomized trials were performed on 22 healthy human beings given cognitive tasks to perform that affected the frontal cortex.
Blood Glucose and Blood Pressure
In trials performed in obese men over a 30 day period designed to look at the calorie restriction effects of supplementation with resveratrol, it was found that it supported healthy blood pressure and blood glucose levels under a daily supplementation of 150 mg resveratrol.
In addition to the beneficial blood aspects, the authors also reported that daily supplementation supported healthy resting metabolic rates and a more restful sleep, induced the activity of citrate synthase in the mitochondria, and activated PGC-1α, AMPK, and SIRT1 proteins. They concluded that the daily supplementation had similar biological effects to that of calorie restriction.
Support of Healthy Insulin levels and Insulin Sensitivity
A small trial conducted in 2011 showed resveratrol was able to support healthy insulin and glucose levels in obese people[6, 7].
Furthermore, inhibition of adipogenic differentiation and preadipocyte proliferation occurs in a Sirt1 dependent manner. The authors put forward that the induction of intracellular pathways by resveratrol may one day act as a target in the treatment of obesity related endocrine and metabolic effects.
When applied topically to the face, resveratrol cream was shown to support against acne. There was also a significant reduction in lesions.
Enhancement of Melatonin Neuroprotective Effects
The hormone Melatonin is involved in circadian rhythm entrainment and therefore plays a major role in the timing of the sleep-wake pattern, seasonal reproduction, and blood pressure regulation. Melatonin is able to enhance the induction of Heme-Oxygenase 1 by resveratrol in neurons.
The synergy between the two does not increase mRNA levels, but does inhibit the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Furthermore, this synergy between these two components leads to enhancements of anti-oxidative properties and neuroprotection effects.
Neurology and Cognition
As mentioned above, resveratrol can cross the blood-brain barrier and is able to support the human cerebral blood flow. It is also thought to suppress the release of glutamate in the neurons, thus playing a role in the control of glutaminergic signaling.
Some of the neuroprotective effects linked with resveratrol includes overcoming excitotoxicity effects (such as ammonia activated by oxidative stress and nitric oxide production) in morphine tolerant mice through suppression of PSD-95 expression.
Most of the research into healthy aging has been performed in the model species Drosophilia and C.Elegans.
There is a body of evidence that resveratrol supports healthy aging in these organisms through up-regulation of Juvenile Hormone. It should be noted that this exact hormone is not present in mammals. So any healthy aging effects associated with resveratrol are resultant from another mechanism(s).
In mammals, resveratrol has been shown to support many noticeable effects related to aging such as cognition, bone mass, and muscle mass as one ages.
As resveratrol is a direct free radical scavenger it is expected to be beneficial in preserving the endothelium from the impact of vasorelaxation agents such as acetylcholine and nitric oxide.
It has also been shown to be beneficial for relaxation of the arteries. Hypertensive rats provided with the equivalent resveratrol supplementation as found in glasses of wine were found to have increased levels of acetylcholine-induced maximal vasorelaxation
As mentioned previously, supplementation also has health benefits on blood pressure at dosages of 150 mg.
Due to the way that resveratrol interacts with cell cycles it is expected to have beneficial long-term effects in the fighting obesity.
It is thought to benefit both muscle and bone health through interfering with the conversion of mesenchymal cells into adipocytes during fat metabolism, this allows stem cells to be used in much more beneficial ways, e.g, for the creation of muscle and bone cells.
In addition to its synergy with melatonin, resveratrol has been reported as having nutrient to nutrient interactions with the flavonoid Genistein (supporting apoptosis during fat metabolism), Vitamin D (bone metabolism, redirection of stem cells), Quercetin (protects blood vessels), curcumin, D-Glucaro-1,4-Lactone, Indole-3-Carbinol, Grape Seed Extract, and β-1,3-Glucan.
Resveratrol has also been shown to have effects on hormonal estrogen metabolism and on testosterone.
The powerful antioxidant pterostilbene (trans-3,5-dimethoxy-4-hydroxystilbene) has a very similar structure to resveratrol but is thought to be much more bioavailable and more potent as an antioxidant.
Some of the health benefits in which it is reported to be beneficial include support of blood glucose levels, cognition, prevention of cell damage, reducing oxidative stress, supporting healthy inflammatory response and aging, weight-loss, and enhancement of the cardiovascular system.
It is naturally present in blueberries (the focus of many of the scientific research studies into it), grape leaves, Pterocarpus, almonds, and peanuts.
As people get older their cells go through a natural decline in antioxidant activity. Thus it is important to support against declines in this process as it can result in many age related conditions, such as a decline in cognition levels and impaired motor function. Pterostilbene is able to act in the mitochondria (the energy center of the cell) to alter the regulation of numerous genes involved in dealing with oxidative stress conditions .
NAD+ is involved in the redox reaction in the mitochondria, and therefore plays a major role in the repair of damaged DNA and in cellular metabolism (which are all important processes in the aging process). When 50 mg of pterostilbene was used in combination with 250 mg of nicotinamide riboside (Niagen) there was a benefit in NAD+ levels in the blood.
Cognition/Brain Health and Function
There have been many neurological health benefits found to be directly related to pterostilbene, these include the control of neuroinflammation, support of response to anxiety, and improvements in mental actions through increased levels of it in the hippocampus
Pterostilbene is linked with supporting healthy blood pressure, activating enzymes with antioxidant roles, and supporting healthy levels of cholesterol and serum triglycerides.
In research using hamster, there was a significant decrease in LDL (Bad cholesterol) and a slight rise in good cholesterol, there was also an associated weight loss observed when taken alongside grape seed extract.
Inflammatory Response and Immunological Aspects
Ingesting pterostilbene orally is reported to reduce neutrophils oxidation caused by the NADPH oxidase enzyme. This enzyme naturally helps to protect against bacterial invasion but excess levels of it can lead to inflammation-associated injuries. Resveratrol is also an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase.

Would I be better taking Resveratrol or just drinking more wine?
Other than the massive risk of the hangover that you are going to get when consuming large amounts of French and Spanish red wine, much of the research work carried out has involved supplementations with greater amounts of resveratrol than are present in wine (about 40–100 bottles worth!). That said many of the benefits associated with blood flow were recorded at low levels ~10 mg resveratrol and help to explain why consumption of antioxidant rich wine may help to maintain a strong heart. As with many natural treatments, moderation is key.
Do I have to take Resveratrol with Pterostilbene?
No, VitaMonk also sells a pterostilbene supplement in capsules as a separate product.
Does resveratrol keep cells from aging?
Most of the healthy aging effects associated with resveratrol reported by researchers was carried out in insects and worms, and seems to affect a hormone that is not found in humans. However, supplementation has been reported to have a positive effect on various aspects associated with aging such as muscle tissue loss, cognition, and bone health.
What about combining Pterostilbene with Nicotinamine Riboside (nr)?
Niagen® or Nicotinamine riboside is a precursor of NAD+. It is a form of vitamins B3. Some of the research results mentioned above made use of pterostilbene with Nicotinamine riboside. This supplement product is also available from VitaMonk, for sale online here on the site or from our Amazon site store.
Does this product relieve other things? If it does, then how?
This antioxidant supplement is associated with many health benefits such as heart health, healthy aging, and cognition. It is not a cure all designed to treat all conditions
What foods containing Pterostilbene and Resveratrol can I include in my diet?
They are present in multiple foods at fairly low levels such as grapes, blueberries, almonds, and peanuts, and also add in the drink red wine.
Where can I buy it on sale near me?
You can purchase the best resveratrol and pterostilbene right here from VitaMonk: the top supplement store online.
How many capsules are there in a container?
Is resveratrol a polyphenol? Yes
How much resveratrol is in a glass of wine? ~ 2 mg (~12.6 mg in a liter of red wine)
Is resveratrol an estrogen?
No, but it does support healthy estrogen levels.
Pterostilbene with Nicotinamine?
Easy to take them combined using our specific product.
What is the recommended resveratrol Dosage?
It is not an essential nutrient, so there is no recommended RDA. A lot of the research work uses amounts of 500 mg to support cognitive benefits, but as little as 10 mg has been shown to support more effective general (not brain) blood flow.
Resveratrol for acne?
It is used topically as a cream.
Does it offer pain relief?
No, it is not used to relieve pain; it is not one of the known remedies for this condition.
Can it restore and boost lower hormone levels for men and for women?
Although it does impact estrogen levels, this is not the primary purpose of this supplementation.
Which foods have resveratrol?
Wine, almonds, nuts.
