Optimised Resveratrol


Suitable for Vegetarians


Life Extension Optimized Resveratrol helps protect the body against cellular ageing.

Resveratrol has been proven to have a potent antioxidant activity. Resveratrol is normally found in grapes and red wine but in both cases vast amounts would have to be consumed to provide a therapeutic effect. Resveratrol has been thoroughly researched to show that it confers cardioprotective propertes and protect the genetic material of the body. Resveratrol has been documented to favourably alter some of the changes in gene expression that cause us to age and may confer in slowing and even reversing certain aspects of ageing.

Life Extension®™s Resveratrol provides 100% standardized trans-resveratrol plus a full spectrum of natural compounds from the grape that have demonstrated remarkable biological properties. Most products currently on the market contain varying quantities of trans- and cis-resveratrol, and fail to provide enough trans-resveratrol for optimal results. In addition, Life Extension's Resveratrol has added pterostilbene, which researchers have found works in a synergistic fashion with resveratrol to activate one™s œlongevity genes./p>

Resveratrol may help:

  • Protect against the ageing of the body and skin
  • Improve insulin sensitivity which may protect against sugar related diseases
  • Enhanced mitochondrial function and hence energy production
  • Reduce inflammatory factors that age the whole body
  • Protect against the toxic effects of a high-fat diet

Optimised Resveratrol provides 250 mg of trans-resveratrol, 85mg of grape polyphenols plus quercetin to facilitate resveratrol absorption. The pterostilbene content of this formula (500 micrograms) is equivalent to over 20 cups of blueberries. Pterostilbene has been shown to have diverse pharmocological actions including a cholesterol lowering effect, enhanced insulin sensitivity, calorie restriction and increased life span.
