Pterostilbene

New research indicates that blueberries contain a substance, along with celery, that can fight colon cancer. The chemical, pterostilbene, is being researched for its cancer fighting properties in conjunction with resveratrol.1 The latest edition of Life Extension Magazine has an interesting article on the topic, and a new article will be forthcoming in the February 2010 issue, if I'm not mistaken. The chemical can be taken in its natural form by eating blueberries and celery, but a powder capsule is also available for a higher potency and a more effective cancer fighting regimen. References
