This product contains the powerful polyphenol resveratrol, which is found in peanuts, berries, the skin of red grapes, red wine, and in the Japanese knotweed plant, also known as polygonum. Resveratrol research has proven it to be a very potent antioxidant which, among other things, acts as a sirtuin activator, meaning it activates the SirT1 gene, which is believed to provide an anti-aging effect.** The polygonum source used in Resveratrol Supreme is standardized to 50% resveratrol, all in the trans form.
Resveratrol is found in peanuts, berries, red wine (from the skin of red grapes), and in the Japanese
knotweed plant, also known as Polygonum. Resveratrol is produced by certain plants to act as a natural
pesticide, protecting the plant from environmental insults. In the case of grapes, it concentrates in
the skin and protects the plant from mold and bacterial infection. The harsher the climate in which
grapes grow, the more protection the grapes need, and therefore, wine produced from those grapes
has a higher amount of resveratrol. Resveratrol may have a similar protective effect against natural
physiological damage when consumed in the diet.
The resveratrol in this product has been standardized to all trans resveratrol, as the opposite or
“cis” form may not have the same beneficial biological activity. It is also more highly concentrated,
to provide a greater amount of resveratrol than an individual would be likely to obtain through a
Quercetin has been called “king of the flavonoids” because
of its powerful antioxidant properties and its ability to
support a healthy inflammatory response in the body.* It
is found in many foods that are recognized for their health
benefits, such as red onions, apples, olive oil, dark berries
and grapes, capers, salad greens, and culinary herbs such
as dill, cilantro, watercress, and radicchio. (Quercetin
contributes to the bold colors of these foods.) Synergy
between resveratrol and quercetin indicates that the two
compounds together may be more beneficial than either
one taken alone.
This product also includes lecithin for more effective
