Resveratrol is a protective compound produced by red grapes (and certain other plants) as a defence against parasites,
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.
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.
Preliminary studies suggest that resveratrol - administered singly, and in combination with other antioxidants - protects the brain against oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is known to play a major role in most neurodegenerative diseases.
A Chinese study has recently shown that, when injected immediately after injury, resveratrol is as effective as the drug prednisone at protecting against inflammation of the spinal cord, but with additional benefit of antioxidant protection. A study of rats pre-supplemented with resveratrol for 21 days has shown that it improves the prognosis, and reduces the permanent effects of stroke.
According to a study at Harvard Medical School, resveratrol activates a longevity gene in certain strains of yeast and extends life expectancy by 70%. It works in the same way as calorie restriction (the only scientifically-proven way of increasing longevity) by activating SIR genes. Research to date has been restricted to yeasts, flies and nematodes but it's worth noting that humans also possess these genes.
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 the ones available to buy at Supersmart Resveratrol Synergy and AntiOxidant Synergy.
