The novel ingredient in BluScience is ChromaDex's proprietary, patent-pending pterostilbene, branded as pTeroPure® (www.pteropure.com), which was named the 2010 North American Most Promising Ingredient of the Year by the independent research company, Frost & Sullivan.
pTeroPure is a proprietary, nature-identical formulation of the antioxidant compound pterostilbene, which is found naturally in blueberries. Pterostilbene has superior biological activity, better oral bioavailability and metabolizes more slowly in the body than other polyphenols (an antioxidant phytochemical that tends to prevent or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals), allowing more time for its antioxidant activities to act. Along with a number of other effects, pterostilbene has shown great promise for supporting cardiovascular health, cognitive function and anti-aging. However, the amount of pterostilbene present in a typical serving of blueberries is a tiny fraction of the amount needed to realize its benefits. In fact, one BluScience capsule has the equivalent amount of pterostilbene as contained in more than 500 cartons of blueberries.
