Resveratrol (trans-resveratrol) is a phytoalexin produced naturally by several plants when under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi. Resveratrol has also been produced by chemical synthesis and is sold as a nutritional supplement derived primarily from Japanese knotweed. In mouse and rat experiments, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood-sugar-lowering and other beneficial cardiovascular effects of resveratrol have been reported. Most of these results have yet to be replicated in humans. In the only positive human trial, extremely high doses (3–5 g) of resveratrol in a proprietary formulation have been necessary to significantly lower blood sugar. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and is a constituent of red wine, but apparently not in sufficient amounts to explain the French paradox. Experiments have shown that resveratrol treatment extended the life of fruit flies, nematode worms and short living fish but it did not increase the life span of mice.
The FRENCH PARADOX:
Grapes and wine contain a natural antidote to MI and cancer, scientists report. This discovery could help explain the so-called “French paradox’ - the lower rates of heart disease and cancer in nations such as France, Italy, Spain.
The French exhibit an astonishing 42% lower incidence of heart disease than Americans while consuming one of the highest fat diets on the planet
Resveratrol explains partly the French Paradox: the low incidence of heart disease among French people, who eat relatively a lot of unhealthy fat but drink resveratrol containing red wine.

Benefits of Resveratrol
Years of researches have shown several benefits of this natural compound:
• It helps you to reverse diseases that come handy as you grow old, such as diabetes, cancer and heart diseases. This can be done with regular intake of Resveratrol while you are still quite young.
• It increases your life span as high resveratrol levels counteract with cell death and damage in brain and heart.
• It is an effective artery protector, antioxidant and inflammation damper.
• Low Resveratrol doses provide the same effect as that of a calorie-reduced diet. This would also slow the ageing process if you start taking in small quantities in your middle age.
• Resveratrol contain in one red wine glass can suppress carcinogenesis that otherwise cause breast cancer.
• Last but not least, it ensures sound cardiovascular system.
