Product Information

Resveratrol is primarily found in red wine, red grape skins, purple grape juice, mulberries, in smaller amounts in peanuts, and in the root of Polygonum cuspidatum, also known as Hu Zhang or kojo-kon. Scientists became interested in exploring potential health benefits of resveratrol in 1992 when its presence was first reported in red wine, leading to speculation that resveratrol might help explain what was referred to as the “French Paradox” (so named, because coronary heart health is high in southern France despite an also high dietary intake of saturated fats).

In the test tube, resveratrol effectively scavenges (neutralizes) free radicals and other oxidants and helps maintain healthy low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation levels.

Researchers have found that low dosesof resveratrol mimic the effects of what is known as caloric restriction - diets with 20-30 percent fewer calories than a typical diet—that in numerous studies has been shown to extend lifespan and blunt the effects of aging. An additional study determined that resveratrol counteracted the detrimental effects of a high-fat diet in mice.

Resveratrol is produced by several plants to combat bacteria and fungi attacks. It has been linked to healthy blood-sugar-levels, chelating and other beneficial cardiovascular support.

Warnings

  • The Co-op's formulation of Resveratrol has been purified to contain less than 2% emodin. (Emodin levels can reach 5% to 10% in resveratrol derived from Polygonum cuspidatum. That much emodin in higher dose resveratrol can lead to stomach upset and diarrhea and so we've purified our Resveratrol formulation further for your overall comfort and well-being).
Factoids
  • Resveratrol was first isolated from an extract of the Peruvian legume Cassia quinquangulata in 1974.
  • Red wine contains more resveratrol than white wine because red wine is fermented with the skins, allowing the wine to absorb the reseveratrol.

Very helpful for high cholesterol!! December 21, 2016
Reviewer: Wayne from Columbus, OH United States  
I would rather take this to get the grape skin results vs.drinking wine daily.Either one helps but this is less likely to hurt your liver in the long-run.
