Chromadex, The Potential "Game Changer" In Patient Dependency Of The Multi-Billion Dollar Pharmaceutical Industry
Resveratrol is another organic compound which originates from the skin of grapes. The natural compound is used to make red wine, an ingredient well renowned for its health effects. Like pterostilbene, resveratrol is acclaimed for reducing blood pressure. However new research questions how impactful the organic compound really is with decreasing blood pressure. This is due in large part to its short life span in the human blood system.
However studies show that pterostilbene circulates through the blood system much longer. According to Chromadex, studies indicate that pterostilbene's life span extends up to two hours, compared to the 11-14 minutes of resveratrol. This provides a longer opportunity for the natural compound to take its course to inside the body.
"(Resveratrol) is not ineffective because it doesn't work, its ineffective because in humans it just happens to metabolize very rapidly, said Frank Jaksch, CEO of Chromadex. It metabolizes in the liver so quickly, that it's not around long enough to be utilized by the body."
Although resveratrol contains more antioxidants than pterostilbene, the extra amount of antioxidants actually works against the body. The liver works at a more accelerated pace to remove these antioxidants because it detects the added elements in which the body did not produce. In fact, the liver operates so quickly to waste the excessive antioxidants that it fails to circulate around the body in time."That's why pterostilbene is sort of an upgrade from resveratrol, said Dr. Jeremy Bartos, Senior Innovation Scientist for Customized Solutions. This is possible because it's able to get where it needs to go in the body in order to do what you are actually taking it for." Beta Blockers is a drug well-recognized for treating high blood pressure. This medication works to block certain areas of the cell in various organs called beta receptors. This action causes stress hormones to be less formidable and for receptors to maintain better control on heart beat rate and blood pressure circulation.
