Resveratrol Supplements: Antioxidants To Prevent Aging

Updated on April 16, 2011

Why Resveratrol Supplements?

Resveratrol supplements provide health benefits to the body. Resveratrol is a natural compound found in several plants. It is known as a phytoalexin because plants produce it as an antibiotic. Resveratrol is found in the stems, leaves, and skins of grapes. It can also be found in cranberries, nuts, raspberries and Japanese knotweed. Red wine is one of the main ways in which we consume Resveratrol. Minimal amounts of it are contained in red wine.

Because of the many possible health benefits, Resveratrol has been concentrated into a supplement form which allows you to enjoy the same benefits of red wine, but without the alcohol or calories. As a supplement, Resveratrol is combined with other antioxidants. Research has shown that Resvertrol has the possibility to offer many health benefits.
