What are the benefits of resveratrol?

Protect your Health with Resveratrol

Most people know that having a glass of wine provides heart protection, but it may also have additional benefits. Red wine contains resveratrol, a protective compound produced by grape vines that is also a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage either by removing free radicals from cells or by blocking them from causing cell damage. While some free-radical damage is unavoidable, such as aging, antioxidants help keep the body in balance. Read on to learn more about the health and anti-aging properties of resveratrol.

  • Reduction in Alzheimer's Disease: This supplement may also provide protection against Alzheimer's disease by maintaining viable cells. In fact, some studies suggest that red wine may have protection against Alzheimer's because it contains the ingredient resveratrol.
  • Anti-Aging Benefits: Another benefit of resveratrol is that it activates the body's cell survival deference enzyme. This gives the cells more time to repair any broken DNA, which may result in greater longevity.
  • Longevity: A Harvard Medical School study found that mice fed a high-fat diet supplemented with resveratrol lived longer than mice fed a high-fat diet alone, and just as long as mice fed a healthy diet.
