Resveratrol is a wildcrafted plant compound known as a polyphenol and naturally occurs in grapes, dark chocolate, various berries and some herbs. In a trans-form for easy absorption, resveratrol provides a rich source of antioxidants that help to combat the damaging effects that medications, pollution, UV rays and dietary choices have on cell health.
Studies have shown that resveratrol reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure and reduces the incidence of arterial plaque formation. Its most unique application is that it mimics the biological effects of eating a calorie restricted diet, which has many different health benefits.
