Antioxidant benefit
Resveratrol ( trans-3,5,4′-trihydroxystilbene ) is a protective compound produced by grapes and other plants in response to environmental stresses. Studies have demonstrated that resveratrol has potent antioxidant activity and also has the ability to inhibit platelet aggregation. These actions may help prevent free radical damage throughout the body and provide protective support to the cardiovascular system. Red wine has about 1.5 to 3 milligrams of resveratrol per liter (a liter is almost 34 ounces).

Resveratrol pill and Longevity
Harvard researchers tested resveratrol on middle aged mice. Resveratrol supplementation increased their survival. In previous studies over the past few years, resveratrol was found to have a similar longevity benefit on yeast, flies and worms. This was the first evaluation of resveratrol on survival extension in mammals. One group of mice ate a normal diet. The second was fed a high-calorie diet and the third had the same high calorie diet but was given resveratrol supplements. By the time the mice were 114 weeks old, about 60 percent in the high-calorie group had died, compared to about 40 percent in the low calorie diet group and the group with the high calorie diet supplemented with resveratrol. The mice taking resveratrol had healthier heart and liver tissue, decreased blood sugar levels, better insulin sensitivity and were more active than the other rodents.

No one knows at this time the ideal dosage of resveratrol to take on a daily basis and how it would interact with other supplements or medicines. We can only tell you that we plan to take one 10 mg capsule once or twice a week until more research is available, and we also plan to drink one or two ounces of red wine most evenings with dinner.
