Only 30 caps?
What is it with only 30 caps in a bottle. What a waste of plastic! You could fit 4 times as many in the bottle! I feel like I'm paying more for the package than the product. I'll look elsewhere next time

Only 30 to a bottle
I do take these and really can't verify any benefits at this point my issue with this item is the amount. Only 30 capsules in a bottle? The bottle size could easily contain 60 and maybe 90. I won't be buying these again from Swanson as I can get these in a more cost effective amount from another seller

I have been taking resveratrol for a couple of years and came across an article about pterostilbene. I began taking this and resveratrol together with good results. It is also quite reasonably priced. I will definitely continue with this combination.

Works well for me
I have been taking this Swanson house brand Pterostilbene for about 8 months. There is measurable improvement in the benefits as dietary supplement. I do not know whether a higher dose offered by other brand with higher potency would get even better benefits and/or faster results. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the Swanson house brand and believe that this represents very good value, considering the benefits derived. It is well worth the money IMHO.

Tiny little pill, BIG RESULTS!!
I have taken this supp for 3 months now, and I can honestly say that I truly feel on overall sense of well being, not to mention the energy lift I have noticed since I started with this product! This is one of those supplements that I had heard about on a TV show, so I did my own research and decided that it would be a welcome addition to the many great products I take regularly!! It takes a little while to actually start 'feeling; the benefits, as it is with most supplements, so don't give up on it before your reap the benefits! From my own research, we'll all be hearing a whole lot more about the goodness of this tiny little pill!

This one's a keeper
Works well with Resveratrol and is benificial as a substitute when blueberries aren't in season. Would like to see magnesium stearate eliminated from Swanson's products.

Too soon to tell
I purchased this product for the first time because of what' I've read about it.
I already take resverital, and read that this is good in combination with it.
I can't honestly say that I've noticed anything special since taking this for about a month, but I also take other supplements.
The price is good.

Doesn't work for me
Perhaps I've added too many items at once, this sounds like a good product, I just can't take it, at least for now.

Pterstilbene, love it!
I'd been using Resveratrol 500 for my hot flashes for about 2 years and then they didn't work for me anymore. I heard about Pterstilbene and tried it. It works great and the dosage is only 50mg. I'm my old self again. Good quality, prices, and service. Thank you.

I just started with this one because
I have been taking resveratrol for years now with what I believe to be GREAT results. While looking at recent anti aging research this supplement has extremely promising results and is a great match to take with resveratrol. As with ANY supplement of this sort it will be years before you really see anything but from I have read, this one has a very bright future.

Save a tree, hug a blueberry
WOW! I'm the first. Well, you should get familiar with this. Now Swanson is very strict about claiming health benefits for their products; so if you want that, go to pteropure.com and get an ear full.
I think that I can say that compounds like pterostilbene are being discovered in many plants and believed to be a defense for stressful conditions. In this case it is found in blueberries. Now who doesn't love them?
Pterostilbene is also called methylated resveratrol (-OH i.e. alcohol is replaced with -OCH3 i.e. methoxy). Resveratrol was first isolated in red wine and believed to be involved in the "French Paradox"
Now, one source for this comes from the heart wood of a endangered tree from India named Pterocarpus marsupium; hence its name. On its manufacturers site, its says it's 100% nature-identical. What does that mean? Well, I would say its synthetic; but what do I know? That doesn't bother me and I say, better living though modern chemistry...lol
