- Protective compound and powerful antioxidant found in red grapes.
- Associated with anti-ageing (preventing disease, reducing inflammation, lowering mortality).
Resveratrol is a protective compound produced by red grapes (and certain other plants) as a defence against parasites. Many studies have demonstrated that resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant and that it protects human health through a number of mechanisms. Indeed, research attributes much of the health protection conferred by the famous French paradox' to resveratrol.
While red wine previously contained 8 to 10 mg resveratrol per litre, there is unfortunately almost no resveratrol in today's red wine due to widespread use of pesticides. We have, however, managed to find a source of pharmaceutical grade resveratrol, extracted directly from organic red grapes, which retains the natural balance of all its active compounds: polyphenols, flavonoids, anthocyanidins and oligoproanthocyanidins (OPCs). This is then enriched with resveratrol extracted from the plant Polygonum cuspidatum and standardised to provide 10% resveratrol. It's the most natural and powerful extract available. Resveratrol is without doubt the most effective and best-researched phytonutrient you can take to maintain and protect your health. It is a brilliant solution to many age-related health problems.
Evidence from numerous studies confirms that resveratrol offers many preventive effects against premature ageing. To benefit from these anti-ageing effects, resveratrol can be taken as a supplement on its own or in antioxidant combinations such as in the formulations Resveratrol Synergy and AntiOxidant Synergy.
