Why K3 Nutriments Organic Resveratrol is Better Than Pterostilbene

Why K3 Nutriments Organic Resveratrol is Better Than Pterostilbene

I've always been passionate about offering the best health supplements available. When it comes to promoting longevity and overall health, two compounds often come up: Resveratrol and Pterostilbene. While both have impressive health benefits, I'm here to tell you why K3 Nutriments Organic Resveratrol is the superior choice.

Now let's get a better understanding of the differences between Resveratrol and Pterostilbene.

What is Resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in the skin of red grapes, blueberries, and other plants. It's celebrated for its antioxidant properties, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Resveratrol is linked to numerous health benefits, including improved heart health, anti-aging effects, sirtuin activation, and potential cancer prevention.

The Discovery of Resveratrol

Resveratrol was first identified in the early 1940s by Japanese scientist Michio Takaoka, who extracted it from the roots of the white hellebore plant. This discovery paved the way for extensive research into its health benefits. Later, in the 1960s, it was found in Japanese knotweed, a plant used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties. In the 1970s, its presence in grapes and red wine connected Resveratrol to the "French Paradox"—the observation that French people, despite their high-fat diet, had low rates of heart disease, likely due to Resveratrol in red wine.

What is Pterostilbene?

Pterostilbene is a derivative of Resveratrol, found in blueberries and other small fruits. It shares many benefits with Resveratrol but differs in its chemical structure, affecting its bioavailability and efficacy. Pterostilbene is often marketed as a more potent alternative to Resveratrol.

The Discovery of Pterostilbene

Pterostilbene was first identified in 1977 by researchers Langcake and Pryce, who were studying grapevines' antifungal properties. They found Pterostilbene in small amounts in blueberries, grapes, and the heartwood of the Indian Kino tree. These discoveries highlighted Pterostilbene's role in plants' defense against pathogens.

Key Differences Between Resveratrol and Pterostilbene


Bioavailability refers to the extent and rate at which an active ingredient is absorbed and utilized by the body. While Pterostilbene is known for higher bioavailability than Resveratrol, this doesn't necessarily mean it's more effective. At K3 Nutriments, we use advanced formulation techniques to enhance the bioavailability of our Organic Resveratrol, ensuring you get the maximum benefit from each dose.

Antioxidant Potency

Both compounds are powerful antioxidants, but studies have shown that Resveratrol can neutralize a broader range of free radicals. K3 Nutriments Organic Resveratrol is particularly potent, thanks to its high purity and concentration, providing superior protection against oxidative stress.

Safety and Side Effects

Some studies suggest that Pterostilbene may raise LDL cholesterol levels, posing a risk to cardiovascular health. On the other hand, Resveratrol has been shown to improve cardiovascular markers, making it a safer long-term supplement. Our Organic Resveratrol is formulated to maximize benefits while minimizing potential side effects.
