Weight Loss with Resveratrol


Resveratrol was first discovered in a variety of Chinese and Japanese plants in the 1940’s. These Chinese and Japanese plants, preferably called roots, were then dried and used to treat health complications. The roots that were discovered to have resveratrol contents were then used for medicinal purposes, especially used to treat various skin complications such as athlete’s foot.

Researcher in 1976 also found resveratrol in certain parts of a grape (the skin and seed but not the flesh). Resveratrol is a powerful fruit with antioxidants and other nutrients that helps to protect the human body against environmental discomforts. The resveratrol fruit is most noted for its useful effects in red wines, which helps guide the body against heart diseases. Resveratrol has also been found to reduce the occurrences of cardiovascular problems in France and other countries because of their regular drinking of red wine.

Resveratrol also has a positive effect on longevity, cancer prevention and aging. It is obvious that the inclusion of resveratrol in your diet will bring you closer to a healthier life. If you are searching for resveratrol, you can find it in Spanish red wine, Spanish red grapes, Spanish rose wine, Spanish white wine, and pinot noir. Resveratrol can also be found in some foods such as raw peanuts, boiled peanuts, cocoa powder, red grapes and peanut butter.

Many companies now produce supplements that contain resveratrol because of its many health benefits. Some of the supplements that contain resveratrol include; green tea extract and many more. However, be sure of the supplements you buy because most supplements have been discovered to be just fillers or contains a very low amount of resveratrol.
