LOS ANGELES — Jarrow Formulas recently launched the dietary supplement Pterostilbene in support of healthy aging.
Pterostilbene is found naturally in blueberries, grapes and the bark of the Indian kino tree (Pterocarpus marsupium), the company stated. Also called dimethylresveratrol, it is a member of the class of nutrients known as stilbenes, which also includes resveratrol. Jarrow noted that Pterostilbene has demonstrated positive results in such areas as cardiovascular and brain health.
The Pterostilbene source used by Jarrow Formulas is the subject of several ongoing scientific trials, the company noted. These include clinical research being conducted at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in connection with the plant compound’s effects with regard to cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammatory responses and oxidative stress.
Jarrow Formulas’ 60-capsule bottle has a suggested retail price of $29.95.
