Can Pterostilbene help blood pressure? Scientists in the US and UK believe that pterostilbene - an anthocyanin molecule found in blueberries and other plants - could reduce the risk of high blood pressure by 8% to 12%. A study published in the American Journal of Nutrition has suggested that flavonoids and anthocyanins from blueberries and other berries can help to reduce blood pressure and prevent hypertension. The large-scale study was conducted by researchers from Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School and the University of East Anglia, into whether increased intake of anthocyanins could cause a reduction in hypertension blood pressure. Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular associated diseases, one of the biggest causes of death. The researchers analyzed results compiled over 14 years, from over 150,000 medical professionals in the U.S, and concluded that increased intakes of anthocyanins was associated with a reduction in the risk of high blood pressure of between 8% and 12%, although the researchers stressed that this data does not prove causation.

Eric Rimm, lead researcher commented: “Our data suggest that several specific classes of flavonoids were associated with blood pressure reduction, specifically anthocyanins, which resulted in a 12% reduction in hypertension risk in multivariate analyses.This data is important because anthocyanins are present in commonly consumed fruit, such as blueberries, cranberries, and strawberries, which can be readily incorporated into the diet,� About Pterostilbene Anthocyanins. Anthocyanins belong to the parent class of flavonoids, which are naturally occurring phytoalexins present in most fruits and berries. These molecules are potent antioxidants that can scavenge free radicals, a major cause of all agerelated illnesses.
