Resveratrol-50 is a protective compound produced by grapevines and other plants in response to environmental stresses. It is a polyphenol, a natural antioxidant that protects cells against dangerous, naturally occurring substances known as free radicals.* Human cell culture studies have demonstrated that resveratrol has potent antioxidant activity, as well as the ability to inhibit platelet aggregation thus protecting circulation and heart function.* Resveratrol-50 supports the immune system by offering a defense against environmental and internal stress caused by reactive oxygen.*
Resveratrol-50 is a phytoestrogen.* Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring plant-derived compounds that are structurally similar to estrogen. It is able to bind to the same receptor sites on estrogen receptive cells, thus protecting against destructive activity.* It is believed that resveratrol has an â€śestrogen-likeâ€ť effect on bone and stimulates the proliferation of the bone-building cells (osteoblasts).* Therefore, resveratrol may help to balance the bone building process.*
Resveratrol-50 offers support against oxidative stress, promotes cardiovascular health and is an excellent addition to your overall health regime.* Each vegetarian capsule contains 200 mg of resveratrol extract (Polygonum cuspidatum) and is standardized to yield 50 mg of resveratrol, which is more than other brands on the market.
