About Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a naturally occurring antioxidant found red grapes, blueberries, chocolate, peanuts and other plant sources. Thought to serve as one explanation for the French Paradox – the idea that the French display remarkable cardiovascular health compared to Americans despite a diet rich in fatty foods – Numerous scientific studies document the potential health benefits of Resveratrol.*
Research conducted at Harvard University indicates that trans-Resveratrol may support activation of the sirtuin gene, also known as the SIRT1 ‘longevity gene.’ By activating this gene, it is thought to slow the cellular aging process. Resveratrol has also been shown to help increase the efficiency and energy production of mitochondria in cells and help support cardiovascular health by helping to increase nitric oxide production and blood flow.*
