Most of us remember when the good news came out that wine has some amazing properties derived from the skin, seed and pulp of the grape. The special compound, called Resveratrol, has been extensively studied since that discovery.
Dr. Oz on the “Extreme Life Extension” episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show popularized it even further, saying, “Resveratrol is the extract of red grape skin which in laboratory testing, has proven to increase life by up to 30 percent.” He also explained the effect that Resveratrol has on weight loss. The body can process calories 1/3 faster, so that the fat we have eaten doesn't get stored. He says, “This leads to some serious weight loss even for those on a high fat diet.” http://www.drozshow.biz/dr-oz-discusses-health-benefits-of-resveratrol
Resveratrol is known for increasing longevity, reducing heart and age-related diseases, boosting immunity with its high antioxidant level, and improving energy and inflammation issues. Valley Naturals carries three Resveratrol products. Buried Treasure Resveratrol Complete has the highest amount of resveratrol we offer at 500 mg per two tablespoons. It has resveratrol from grapeseed extract, green tea and wonderful berries such as blueberry, elderberry, red raspberry, bilberry, and cranberry.
Source Natural's Resveratrol from grapevine and other plants has a 40 mg and a 100 mg offering in tablet form, and Reserveage Resveratrol also combines organic grape and plant resveratrols in a 250 mg product in a 60 count vegicap.
I am personally a fan of Resveratrol. When my husband had cancer that was so aggressive even chemo wouldn't work, this is one of the supplements his doctor had him on. As my husband has been cancer free now for ten years, I feel this product was one of the reasons his body was able to combat the big C - and win. Ellen
