NOW Natural Resveratrol 

Source of antioxidants for the maintenance of good health. Much attention has been given to resveratrol, one of the active constituents of grapes and wines identified in the "French Paradox" health discussion for being a powerful antioxidant that seems to extend longevity. This capsule version offers a non-alcoholic means of increasing resveratrol intake versus the ingestion of red wine.

Resveratrol is a stilbenoid, a type of natural phenol, and a phytoalexin produced naturally by several plants in response to injury or when the plant is under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi. Resveratrol has been shown to activate sirtuins, compounds that may increase cell survival. Calorie restriction, which was observed in animal research, and activation of SIRT1, a deacetylase enzyme that regulates the activity of several transcriptional factors and  enzymes responsive to nutrient availability, have both been proposed as mechanisms for resveratrol's lifespan-extending effect. NOW's Natural Resveratrol is source from Japanese Knotweed, and enhanced with other antioxidants from Red wine extract, Green Tea, and Grape Seed. This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
