Resveratrol Supplements

Benefits Without the Buzz

Resveratrol Supplements Deliver the Recommended Daily Dose of the Antioxidant

The health benefits of red wine are, by now, fairly clear to anyone who chooses to look, and ongoing studies point to resveratrol, an antioxidant found on the skin of red grapes, as a key player in the process of fighting cancer, Alzheimer's and many other diseases.

But even the most enthusiastic oenophile would have a tough time drinking enough wine to get the levels of resveratrol with which scientists work — an amount anywhere from dozens to hundreds of glasses a day. That's why resveratrol is now available in supplement form, allowing high doses of these beneficial substances without the alcohol. In fact, the resveratrol in many of these supplements comes not from grapes but from Japanese knotweed, an alternative source.
