Resveratrol Supplements: Reviews, Proper Dosage and Side Effects

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin produced by several plants when under attack by pathogens (bacteria or fungi).It was reported to have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood-sugar-lowering and cardiovascular healing properties. If before, resveratrol nutritional supplements were sourced from ground dried grape skins and seeds, they are now derived from Japanese knotweed. People took notice of resveratrol through excessive attention given to it by the media.

There were some positive reviews published online about resveratrol supplements. However, it is best to consult your doctor first before taking any nutritional supplements to avoid side effects which could be harmful to your health.

Resveratrol can help you to lead a long and healthy life so says Dr. Oz and many other doctors. Red wine alone does not supply enough resveratrol to achieve the full range of benefits because one glass of red wine has only about
1mg of resveratrol and you need about 250mg/day. You need to take
high potency resveratrol supplements to achieve the results documented
in scientific studies.Resveratrol Supplements can also help you control
your weight naturally by increasing energy, reducing cravings, and limiting
your appetite.According to Wikipedia, Consumer Lab, an independent dietary
supplement and over the counter products evaluation organization,
published a report on 13 November 2007 on the popular resveratrol
supplements. The organization reported that there exists a wide range
in quality, dose, and price among the 13 resveratrol products
evaluated. The actual amount of resveratrol contained in the
different brands range from 2.2mg for Revatrol, which claimed to have
400mg of "Red Wine Grape Complex", to 500mg for Transmax,
which is consistent with the amount claimed on the product's label.
Prices per 100mg of resveratrol ranged from less than $.30 for
products made by, jarrow, and country life, to a high of
$45.27 for the Revatrol brand.
