Resveratrol and Pterostilbene are two of the most effective anti-oxidants.
The body uses them to protect against oxidative damage
- which is one of the causes of healthy cells getting damaged
- and hence "aging"
Resveratrol and pterostilbene are known for their anti-ageing action, based on sirtuin (SIRT1) enhancement.
For example, the polyphenol found in grapes and blueberries has beneficial effects as an anti-aging compound through modulating the hallmarks of aging:
- including oxidative damage
- supporting a healthy inflammatory response
- telomere attrition
- cell senescence.
In the study provided in the link below, it is discussed the relationship between resveratrol and pterostilbene and aging biomarkers.
The focus is on the positive effect of resveratrol and pterostilbene on healthy aging, aged-related issues, and health maintenance.
Furthermore, it is summarised a variety of important mechanisms modulated by resveratrol and pterostilbene involved in attenuating age-associated issues.
