Resveratrol, a polyphenol found naturally in the skin of red grapes, apples, and some berries, is known for having beneficial effects for cardiovascular health, since it can inhibit platelet aggregation (which causes blood clots) and lipid peroxidation (which helps cause atherosclerosis).
Resveratrol's antioxidant properties protect cells from free radicals and disrupt the effects of aging, particularly when given in the standardized trans-Resveratrol form, which has been shown to help activate SIRT1 (Sirtuin 1), the so-called 'longevity gene,' which not only helps regulate cellular senescence/aging, but also metabolism, stress resistance, cellular survival, inflammation-immune function, endothelial functions, and circadian rhythms.
Besides possibly being of use in helping other chronic diseases besides cardiovascular ones such as diabetes, and inflammatory pulmonary, neuro-degenerative, or renal diseases, some report that it can help increase their energy levels and combat low mood. Resveratrol is beginning to be studied as a potential means of reducing some types of cancer, as well. Quercetin, which is an antioxidant in its own right which can also combat cholesterol and reduce allergies and inflammatory responses, has been added to this formula to help the Resveratrol remain in the bloodstream longer. These ingredients may even help with weight loss, particularly when used in combination.
