Resveratrol has been known as the most natural anti-ageing and antioxidant plant ingredient in the twentieth century. Pterostilbene is a derivative of resveratrol in plants. Pterostilbene and resveratrol have similar chemical, physiological and pharmacological properties, but their biological activity is far greater than resveratrol, and their bioavailability and stability are also better than resveratrol. Compared with resveratrol, the methoxyl structure of pterostilbene improves oil solubility, is easier to absorb, has better biological activity, and has 5-10 times antifungal effect. In addition, due to PPAR α (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor) induced generation, the effect of inhibiting lipid peroxidation of the cell membrane is better. The only anti-inflammatory effect can be achieved by inhibiting COX-2 and compared with resveratrol with multiple metabolic channels, it is more stable in the body, and it is currently the leading natural anti-oxidation active ingredient of excellent whitening.
