Is it useful to use wine to achieve better assimilation with resveratrol supplements?
Animal research studies with resveratrol supplementation have typically not involved alcohol, but instead high-fat diets have been studied.
Research has shown that the health benefits of resveratrol are increased after supplementation with high-fat foods, defined as those with at least 40% calories from fat. But not just any fat will work. Only typical medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) fats such as coconut oil, olive oil and butter seem to potentiate the benefits of resveratrol.
However, conventional wisdom around the office says that a couple glasses of wine might make resveratrol supplements even more enjoyable to use. Your call!
