Resveratrol is found naturally in a variety of plants such as red grapes and wine, peanuts and mulberries. Resveratrol became known when studies showed that people living in France had lower rates of heart disease despite diets high in saturated fats. Sometimes called the “French Paradox”, studies linked red wine as a factor in lowering heart disease. Subsequent research identified a naturally-occurring antioxidant, resveratrol, as the contributor to cardiovascular health. It may also support longevity when combined with calorie restriction and may help prevent or slow degenerative diseases associated with aging. This supplement contains Japanese Knotweed Extract (20% trans-resveratrol) and Grape Seed Extract (standardized to 80% Oligomeric proanthocyanidins). Japanese Knotweed contains high concentrations of trans-resveratrol, the active form of the compound. Grape Seed Extract is known for being a universal antioxidant that protects the vascular system and may help treat conditions such as varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Resveratrol with Grape Seed Extract provides the health benefits associated with red wine, in consistent potency, without consuming excessive amounts of wine each day.
