You can argue about the dangers of sugar, the problems caused by gluten, the benefits of vitamin D, or any of the other things dietitians or nutritionists routinely argue about. All of this is important, but none is as intriguing or consistent as the burgeoning science of polyphenols.
As a reminder, polyphenols are plant metabolites that generally protect plants from ultraviolet radiation or infestation by pathogens. In the past, they were considered to be only plant chemicals that gave a bright color to a particular plant or something that resulted in a certain taste or smell of plant foods.
We became aware of ourselves in the second part of the 20th century, but when we started to recognize them as chemicals that could radically change human health in various ways.
Although the science behind them is still in its infancy, we have begun to isolate and understand the power of individual polyphenols for human health. Among those who have attracted the most attention (and research) is resveratrol, a polyphenol found in high concentrations in grapes, apples, blueberries, plums and peanuts.
Athletes know the substance for their ability to raise testosterone levels. Lowering estrogen, reducing fat reserves or making young muscle cells longer and thicker, but a recent work in Food Science & Nutrition details in exhaustive detail a list of other resveratrol abilities.
Here are some highlights from the newspaper:
Resveratrol and Diabetes
Resveratrol lowers blood sugar in type 1
Resveratrol and cardiovascular disease
19659009] A number of studies have shown that polyphenol is generally anti-atherosclerotic, antihypertensive, anti-myocardial ischemia, anti-stroke and heart failure. All this is done by increasing the bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO), positively affecting the lipid profile and being a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Resveratrol and Alzheimer's Disease
Resveratrol and Alzheimer's Disease
One of the contributing factors to Alzheimer's is the excessive production of Reactive Oxygen species (ROS) and resveratrol have been shown to attenuate ROS damage and additionally have anti-amyloidogenic properties (ie Prevent plaques, which are a hallmark of the disease).

Resveratrol also fights a whole host of other things
Numerous publications have shown that resveratrol, in addition to the treatment of primary diseases also treats humans, has promising prospects Treatment of other diseases such as Parkinson's, kidney and liver diseases, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy and antipathogenic properties.
What else do I need to know about Resveratrol?
For most polyphenols, resveratrol is difficult to overdose. The only known negative side effect reported by Resveratrol was diarrhea, and these were isolated cases.
While polyphenol absorption is often a problem, resveratrol has a relatively healthy absorption rate of about 70%. However, the bioavailability of the compound may still be low due to its rapid metabolism in the gut and liver. For this reason, it is better to take it in the form of supplements – especially something that increases bioavailability.
The Rez-V ™ product contains pure resveratrol dissolved in lauroyl polyoxyl-32-glycerides (aka gelucire) mixture of glycerides and polyethylene glycol esters, which enhances the absorption of polyphenol.
It is not yet known exactly how much resveratrol you need to get therapeutic results. However, it seems that 200 mg. One day (assuming high bioavailability) would work for general health purposes, while doses of up to 600 mg. One day may be necessary to increase testosterone, lower estrogen, increase muscle fiber size, or have any effect on the diseases / conditions listed in the described research paper.
