Resveratrol is a nutrient found in many plants such as berries and herbs, and it is the main component in red wine that is responsible for its touted health benefits. Research has confirmed it has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in the body with the potential to impact many chronic diseases.
Studies have shown that it reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure, and lowers the incidence of arterial plaque formation. Resveratrol has been shown to work as an anti-cancer agent, blocking events that occur during cancer initiation, promotion and progression. The most unique application of resveratrol is that it mimics the effects of eating a calorie-restricted diet, which has many different health benefits. Calorie restriction involves an approximate 40% reduction in caloric intake while maintaining levels of nutrients, and has been shown to increase the lifespan of a number of different species. Resveratrol provides many of the beneficial effects of caloric restriction, making it a powerful addition to any anti-aging protocol.
Unfortunately resveratrol is an unstable molecule, so to address this problem AOR’s Acta-Resveratrol is produced under controlled humidity and low light conditions for optimal stability and potency. The addition of vitamin C, quercetin and rosemary extract support the powerful antioxidant action of resveratrol and enhance its many health benefits. Get the benefits of red wine without the hangover. Each capsule of AOR’s Acta-Resveratrol contains enough resveratrol to equal that found in approximately 180 glasses of red wine.
