Top 6 Reasons You Should Take a Resveratrol Supplement
If you read up on the latest health news then you have probably heard some of the things scientists are discovering about resveratrol.
Resveratrol is perhaps one of the most overlooked supplements on the market today, even though it has so much to offer in the way of superior health benefits.
Findings show that this natural organic compound has the ability to crush heart disease and greatly improve your health in numerous ways. It can prevent early aging and even stop certain types of cancer from forming. It’s believed that the reason some cultures have so few health issues is because wine, which is loaded with resveratrol, is a part of their daily meals.
Of course, you will find those who pooh pooh the findings and say that people are using these studies as an excuse to drink more wine. Even The Mayo Clinic states on their web page that even through resveratrol appears to have some health benefits, they don’t think drinking wine is the answer to health problems, but in fact will only lead to alcohol abuse. They also note that most studies have only involved animals, not humans.
Well, there actually have been studies that involved humans, and they do show the same health benefits in humans as they do in lab animals. It’s not only wine that contains resveratrol, it is also found in blueberries, pomegranates, peanuts, and cranberries, although these haven’t been studied as extensively as red grapes and wine. As far as wine goes, the most potent wines are the ones made from Pinot Noir, and St. Laurent grapes appear to have the highest levels of resveratrol.
Resveratrol is a part of important plant compounds called polyphenols. These substances have high antioxidant compounds that protect the body from damage caused by free radicals, and greatly lower our risk of developing serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
