What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is an exciting natural compound found in red wine, red grape skin, Japanese Knotweed, peanuts and some berries. Resveratrol is the subject of extensive research into numerous health benefits and many scientists also believe it (along with other natural substances found in grape skin) to be responsible for the 'French Paradox' - the French have low rates of heart disease compared to many other countries, despite the fact they have many known risk factors, including a diet high in saturated fat, smoking and ingesting a significant amount coffee. It is theorised that this effect may be due to the consumption of moderate amounts of red wine - a pastime enjoyed by many French people. Red wine is a source of resveratrol and other polyphenols found in grape skin.
“I had seen the doctor who recommended I cut down on salt to support normal blood pressure. After taking Res-V®, he says I’m a lot healthier.”
Leighton Smith, Newstalk ZB
“I had a blood test/ medical. My doctor couldn’t believe the results. At least some of that will be Res-V® Plus, so it’s all good!”
Mike Hosking, Newstalk ZB
Resveratrol is concentrated in the skin of red grapes, which is why red wine - especially the Pinot Noir variety - contains far higher amounts of resveratrol than white wines or grape juice. However, to obtain the optimum dose of resveratrol from red wine you would have to drink a lot of red wine each day - not very good for your liver or memory. The good news is that you don’t need to drink copious amounts of red wine to get the benefits from resveratrol, as it is also sourced from Japanese Knotweed, a herb used in traditional Japanese and Chinese medicine. Each daily capsule of Res-V Plus contains the equivalent resveratrol content of between 10 and 30 bottles of red wine (depending on the type).
The key ingredient, resveratrol, is expertly combined with red grape skin, grape seed extract, green tea, pine bark and turmeric to naturally support:
|• Energy||• Joint mobility|
|• Muscle health||• Heart & Vascular health|
|• Brain health||• Prostate & Breast health|
|• Healthy aging||• Cell protection|
Japanese Knotweed - is one of the richest natural sources of resveratrol, providing most of the world’s supply, including the resveratrol used in Res-V®.
Red Grape Skin - is an effective antioxidant that works in synergy with the other herbal extracts. Red Grape Skin and Grape Seed extract together provide enhanced cardiovascular support.
Turmeric - is a well-known Indian herb that gives you the yellow colour commonly used in Indian and Asian cooking. Turmeric contains curcumin, a natural compound that supports joint mobility and movement, supports the immune system against winter chills and ills and supports immunity and brain function as we get older.
Pine Bark (Pinus massoniana) - has been used in East Asian traditional medicine for centuries. However it has only been discovered in the last decade of the 20th century that the extract from Chinese Pine has potent antioxidant properties. Bioactive substances called polyphenols discovered in Chinese pine bark help the body’s natural cell defences against the harmful effects of free radicals. Excess free radicals destroy healthy cells, leading to many degenerative diseases. It’s important that we have natural antioxidants daily from our foods (especially found in the skins and seeds of fruit and vegetables) and supplement where necessary, to support healthy aging.
Green Tea - is a common beverage in Asia and has higher levels of antioxidants - called catechins -than black tea, which is commonly consumed in the West. Green tea supports the body's natural immune response, healthy liver, heart, brain and joint function.
Adults take from 1-3 capsules daily at separate times, preferably with food, or as directed by a health professional. Avoid taking with high fat meals due to possible negative effects on bioavailability.
The non-vegetarian (gelatine) capsule opens easily to free contents. Add juice or water to drink. If needed, may be sweetened with honey.
