Pterostilbene Found To Be More Effective At Preventing Colon Cancer Than Resveratrol

March 23, 2011: 12:50 PM EST
A Taiwan study in mice comparing the health benefits of reveratrol, a compound found in red grapes and red wine, and pterostilbene found pterostilbene to be more potent in protecting against colon cancer. Pterostilbene, extracted from the heartwood of the Indian kino tree, has been shown in earlier studies to have anti-diabetes effects as well. The polyphenol resveratrol has been known for some time to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects. “These findings strongly suggest the chemopreventive potential of dietary administration of pterostilbene against colonic tumorigenesis,” the researchers concluded.
