Ingredients & DescriptionPublished scientific findings have stated that one of the most effective plant extracts for maintaining optimum health may be Resveratrol. Years of research have produced a standardized resveratrol extract now available as Life Extension Resveratrol Cap (100mg). Red wine contains resveratrol, but the quantity varies depending on factors such as the region the grapes are grown and time of harvest. Even in the most robust wines, a liter of red wine usually contains only 1-3 mg of resveratrol. The dosage (100 mg) of resveratrol found in this supplement is the amount of resveratrol found in 5 liters of French red wine. Studies have shown that higher amounts of resveratrol may have outstanding health benefits in fighting off cardiovascular and other diseases associated with aging.
Resveratrol is sophisticated in its actions, not only destroying free radicals; it activates and deactivates critical enzymes and genes, hormones and chemicals. Hardening and thickening of arteries is a serious consequence of damage caused by free radicals. Resveratrol’s antioxidant action helps open arteries by enhancing nitric oxide and stops the destructive forces of free radicals. Studies continue to show benefits of Resveratrol for wide range disease prevention, such as, heart disease, various cancers and Alzheimer’s disease. A recent study has shown resveratrol to be useful in the treatment of brain/spinal cord traumas.
