Did you know that all the hype surrounding red wine and longevity is actually related to an antioxidant called Resveratrol?
Now, alcoholism is always bad, so don’t go fill up your kitchen shelf with red wine. Instead, explore the health-boosting powers of this molecule, and find out the healthier ways you can consume it.
More than 12,000 scientific papers about Resveratrol have been published in preventing or slowing down the progression of multiple illnesses. Resveratrol could be a safe and effective strategy when it comes to enhancing longevity and minimising the risk of age-related diseases.
What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is a polyphenol produced by plants that act as a natural defence system against environmental stressors. It is commonly found in Japanese knotweed and a variety of foods, including grapes, peanuts, and berries.
How can you get Resveratrol?
To get 100 mg of Resveratrol, you need to consume around 8-9 L of red wine daily. And come now folks, we all know how harmful too much alcohol can be. If you’re pregnant or have heart conditions, you should probably avoid alcohol altogether.
Supplements you should take
This is when longevity supplements like the AVEA Booster come in handy. The synergistic effects of Resveratrol with other antioxidants has guided the innovative product development of our Booster.
Our science-backed supplement contains 5 natural ingredients which target diverse mechanisms of ageing at cellular level. We included 150 mg of Resveratrol in our Booster for its ability to also work with our NMN product. Taken together, these supplements work as a powerful duo to help in improving metabolic health and slowing down the ageing process.
Effect on the brain
Resveratrol demonstrated protective effects against neurodegenerative diseases by enhancing the secretion of neurotransmitters (important chemical messengers in your brain cells), promoting neurogenesis (brain cells production), and decreasing neuroinflammation and oxidative stress.
Effect on the heart
Resveratrol can protect against ageing-associated vascular diseases like atherosclerosis through multiple studied mechanisms. It reduces superoxide (detrimental radicals) generation, improves oxidative stress, and regulates the renin-angiotensin system.
Effect on cancer
Resveratrol has been found to inhibit tumour progression by suppressing cell proliferation and metastasis (when cancer spreads to a different body part from where it started). Further studies in human colon cancer cell lines have also revealed how Resveratrol can induce apoptotic cell death, a process that eliminates damaged, virus-infected and cancer cells.
Effect on bone health
A clinical study in 2020 even revealed how regular supplementation with 75 mg of Resveratrol twice daily, has potential to delay bone loss in the lumbar spine and femoral neck of postmenopausal women.
Effect on skin health
Resveratrol can have a two-fold effect, both on neutralising free radicals and boosting antioxidant levels, so your skin can better defend and repair itself.
