I have recently started taking Elysium Basis. I am thinking about adding 500mg of Resveratrol (maybe x500 from Revgenetics) to my daily regimen. Does taking Resveratrol in addition to Elysium Basis give me additional benefit? I realized that Elysium Basis already has about 50mg of Pterostilbene, which is chemically very similar to Resveratrol.

 

I am a 35 years old male of East Asian ancestry. I have not taken any antiaging supplement prior to taking Elysium Basis.

 

Thanks,

Pterostilbene as found in Elysium basis has many of the save effects as resveratrol, so it may be overkill to take it additionally to Elysium.

 

On the other hand, no one has really studied it specifically.  It may be that taken NR, one of the two ingredients in Elysium, with resveratrol, works as well as Elysium.

Well, the founder of Elysium, Leonard Guarante, said last year that he was taking 250 mg of resveratrol along with Basis (50mg of pterostilbine in that). I started taking 100mg of pterostilbine but no resveartrol or NR for now, thinking that might be similar to taking 400mg of resveratrol. That is just based on pterostilbine being about four to five times as bioavailable as resveratrol, which may not be the right way to look at it.

 

Guarente has said that he thinks there is a possibility that pterostilbene has positive synergistic with NR. He may be sort of hedging by adding the 250 mg of resveratrol.

I also read that Leonard Guarante takes 250 mg of resveratrol along with Basis in one of the articles. That's actually the reason why I am thinking about adding resveratrol to my regimen. But I just want to understand whether there are any scientific reasons behind this.
 
Are there any synergies between resveratrol and pterostilbene? Is there anything that resveratrol does but pterostilbene cannot do?

I'm not sure, but it is possible that since Guarente is the founder of the company that is selling NR with pterostilbene, he wants to start with his own product. Yet he may want more resveratrol / pterostilbene, and it looks better to say when asked that he also takes 250 mg of resveratrol. If he took another 50 mg of pterostilbene instead, people would want to know why he didn't just add that to Elysium Basis. 

 

That would bring Guarente to 500 mg of "equivalent" resveratrol, whereas Sinclair says he takes 1000 mg of resveratrol a day. Guarante's dose is also consistent with Sinclair's statement that you need hundreds of mg of resveratrol a day to have an effect.

Resveratrol activates Sirt1, Sirt4 and Sirt 5... I haven't seen Pterostilbene do all that.
