Resveratrol is an antioxidant belonging to the polyphenol family found in many plants such as various berries, peanuts, rhubarb and several oriental herbs including the Japanese Giant Knotweed. It is the main component in red wine that is responsible for its touted health benefits. Research has confirmed that resveratrol has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in the body with the potential to impact many chronic diseases.
Studies with resveratrol have reported a diverse range of physiological and biochemical effects, particularly in the areas of heart health, immunity, and inflammation. Studies have shown that it reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure, and lowers the incidence of arterial plaque formation. However, the most unique application of resveratrol is that it mimics the effects of a calorie-restricted diet. A calorie-restricted diet is associated with different health benefits and has been shown to increase the lifespan of several different species. Resveratrol provides many of the beneficial effects of caloric restriction, making it a powerful addition to any anti-aging protocol.
