What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant that is found in the skin of certain plants such as red grapes, raspberries, mulberries, blueberries, cranberries, and red wine. Resveratrol supplements are a concentrated form of resv for those who can’t seem to get enough purple and red fruit in their diet. If this is you, don’t fret, almost no one wants to eat 2 lbs of grapes a day.
Resveratrol is called a ‘phytoalexin’ because plants naturally produce this antibiotic agent to fight against bacteria and fungi caused by environmental stress and the severity of weather conditions.
Resveratrol can also be found in peanuts, certain pine trees, and knotweed. It has numerous health benefits, promotes a healthy longer life to consumers, and is free from unwanted side effects.
The downside? Until now resveratrol has only been available as a component of red wine, but no longer! Resveratrol supplements now offer us a concentrated dose of resveratrol without the calories.
