Resveratrol (Mega Potency Polygonum cuspidatum and Red Wine Extract)
Resveratrol is a natural compound (polyphenol) found in red grapes, red wines and other plants. Laboratory studies show that it extends the life span of certain cells by as much as 70%. Harvard researchers have discovered that Resveratrol works by regulating a gene associated with aging that is present in all living creatures. Current evidence suggests that Resveratrol exerts antioxidant effects, boosts energy production, relaxes blood vessels, impairs growth of fat cells, and alters genetic expression in a favorable manner. This process seems to aid in the anti-aging and prolonged life span effects of Resveratrol. Laboratory trials have shown Resveratrol to inhibit growth of many cancer cell types.
