Resveratrol is an antioxidant which may help to protect cells from free radicals. It may help to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and also normal female hormones. Resveratrol has been reported to have potent anti-inflammatory properties.
Resveratrol is a compound found primarily in red wine, though in our product it comes from the Japanese Knotweed plant.
In comparison an average glass of red wine provides approximately 1mg of resveratrol at best, while a handful of peanuts provide about 73µg of resveratrol. Resveratrol capsules provide 150mg resveratrol each. Micrograms (µg) are 1000 times smaller than milligrams (mg).

Resveratrol as a natural anti inflammatory for pain relief.
Resveratrol is a plant-based polyphenol molecule that is found in various concentrations of many different plant sources. The plant is called Japanese Knot weed or Polygonum cuspidatum, and the skins of red wine grapes are believe to have the most concentrated amounts of resveratrol. In plants, resveratrol is generally found in the plant skin and acts as a phytoalexin to protect the plant from infection, excessive UV radiation and aide in general plant defence. Resveratrol has also been found to have significant anti-mutation, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and DNA protective actions, when consumed by humans.
Most of the active research with resveratrol has been done in neuro and cardio protection, but several studies have reported on resveratrol’s use for arthritic joint pain. In 2007 it was reported that resveratrol protects cartilage and reduces the inflammatory reaction in knee osteoarthritis. The anti-inflammatory properties of resveratrol have also been observed in experimental models with oedema. Resveratrol has potent anti-inflammatory properties.
The trans-resveratrol is the active form, and although there is not an established dosing range, the typical dose is from 50 to 500 mg daily. Any significant side effect or safety issues with resveratrol have not been established, but due to an experimentally shown anti-platelet effect, caution should be exercised when taking other prescription or herbal anti-platelet or coagulation altering products.
