Product Name:Blueberry extract pterostilbene
Botanical Source:Vaccinium uliginosum Linn
Color:Fine Purple-red Powder
Specification:Pterostilbene 20% UV
Extract Solvents:Ethanol & WaterPterostilbene:An immune boosterBlueberry extracts (pterostilbene rich) upregulated Natural Killer (NK) Cells, while downregulating proinflammatory Nuclear Factor kappa-beta (NFk-b) expression.
NK Cells identify and destroy any abnormal cells such as virus infected and pre-cancerous cells.
Amongst others, two notable pathogens Pterostilbene is adept at inhibiting are Hepatitis C virus and Candida:
Pterostilbene inhibits infectious particles from being assembled and secreted by the Hepatitis C virus.
Candida Albicans is a particularly nasty fungus as it has the ability to form antibiotic resistant biofilms and is a NAD+ auxotroph this means it decreases NAD+ which is essential for the expression of youth extending SIRT genes and energy levels in general.
Pterostilbene downregulates the expression of Ras, cAMP and related genes in Candida that are involved in the forming of its protective biofilm so that the immune system can get to and fight any Candida infections.
