Resveratrol is a plant compound found in red grapes, peanuts, berries, and the Japanese knotweed plant. A number of plants produce resveratrol in response to stress, injury, infection or UV radiation. In 1992,researchers speculated that resveratrol may explain the "French Paradox" - the observation that(generally speaking) despite smoking plus a diet high in fat, the French have lower mortality from heart disease - which may be explained by their frequent wine consumption.
In vitro, resveratrol has been shown to neutralize free radicals, inhibit LDL ("bad" cholesterol) oxidation, platelet aggregation (blood clotting) and inflammatory enzymes, and stimulate eNOS (an enzyme that catalyzes nitric oxide formation). Nitric oxide is important for maintaining a healthy relaxation of the arteries (vasodilation).
Caloric restriction has been shown to extend the lifespan of many species, including mammals. Studies have demonstrated that resveratrol extended the lifespan of yeast, worms, mice, fish, and fruit flies by stimulating the sirtuin - a protein that mimics the effects of caloric restriction. One study found resveratrol increased the activity of the human enzyme Sirt1 in vitro. A low dose of resveratrol in the diet of mice was found to slow the age-related decline in cardiac function and alter gene expression in the heart, brain, and muscle similar to the way caloric restriction would.

Have you ever wondered why health experts recommend a glass of red wine a day to improve your health? The scientific reasoning behind this is that red wine contains resveratrol, a potent antioxidant that supports the immune system, strengthens cardiovascular health, and is a weight loss aid. Although commonly known for being found in skin of red and purple grapes, Resveratrol is a plant compound also found in blueberries, cranberries, pistachios, peanuts, and other plant sources. Since the resveratrol content of these foods varies, a resveratrol supplement guarantees your body receives the right amount to function at its best. A supplement is also beneficial because orally-taken resveratrol tends to metabolize and exit the body quickly.
Resveratrol from Nature In plants, resveratrol works to fight bacteria, fungi, and other harmful contaminants that can harm plant health. It also helps plants resist tough conditions of droughts or low access to nutrients. The same can be said of the benefits to human bodies.
Your body can easily become victim to damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals speed up aging, making you look older than you feel or should look. Counteract this effect with a potent antioxidant that slows down aging and helps prevent the deep wrinkles, lines, and sun spots caused by free radicals. Aside from speeding up aging, free radicals also speed up the progression of disease. It is important to eliminate free radicals in the body to prevent the onset of long-term diseases and cancers, such as prostate cancer.
One research study conducted in Milan found that resveratrol can improve cardiovascular health. Livamed’s Resveratrol antioxidant supplement helps you feel and stay energized. It also prevents oxidation of LDL, or bad, cholesterol that leads to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries.
Although exercise is beneficial to health, regular intense physical activity can lead to a considerable amount of inflammation in the body. The anti-inflammatory properties of resveratrol can help heal bodies exposed to inflammation and treat symptoms, such as post-workout aches and pains.
A healthy immune system gets extra support from antioxidants to fight against toxins and infectious agents that you may come into contact with every day. Resveratrol offers that immune system support that helps your body fight disease-causing agents and still stay energized.
This supplement is a safe and natural way to increase resveratrol levels. It is also healthier than a daily glass of wine. Take control of free radical levels in your body and slow down aging to look and feel healthier. Livamed's Resveratrol supplement gives your body the proper and safe amount your body needs per day. To reap full benefits of this resveratrol supplement, take two capsules a day. For a holistic approach, combine this supplement with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
