Resveratrol is a stilbenoid and polyphenol found in red wine, red grapes, raspberries, blueberries, and bilberries. Red wine owes its high resveratrol concentration due to the grape seeds and skins used to make it. Resveratrol is rich in antioxidants and may support several areas of health, including enhancing longevity, reducing inflammation, and supporting heart and joint health.
The typical French diet is high in fat, which often correlates to heart health problems and diseases. However, the French tend to have lower cardiovascular disease rates despite their eating habits. One explanation is that the French also consume red wine regularly, which is rich in antioxidants like resveratrol. As such, many attribute resveratrol as an explanation for the French Paradox.
Resveratrol’s popularity is largely due to its effects on longevity. It doesn’t increase lifespan so much as it helps the body defend itself against external factors that contribute to premature aging. The overall effect is an improvement in the quality of health. Resveratrol antioxidants also protect against oxidative stress and free radical damage. Without antioxidants, free radicals can damage cells and cause or worsen chronic diseases. Resveratrol antioxidants also support cognitive health by acting as neuroprotectors and anti-inflammatory agents within the brain.
Resveratrol may support joint health due to its anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant content. It protects against oxidative stress and reduces inflammatory gene expression in the joints. Resveratrol may also reduce joint pain by preventing cartilage breakdown.
Resveratrol has several mechanisms that may support heart health. Resveratrol stimulates the production of vasodilators like nitric oxide, which encourages blood vessels to widen and relax. It also helps reduce pressure on artery walls. Resveratrol antioxidants further support heart health by scavenging free radicals and reducing oxidative stress in the heart. Resveratrol may improve blood fats levels, too. Research shows resveratrol antioxidants help decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol levels by inhibiting fat oxidation.
Resveratrol and quercetin are antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Both also support heart health. These supplements work better when taken together to provide superior results. Their most notable synergy relates to inhibiting fat cells from forming and protecting blood vessels.
Resveratrol and curcumin are both anti-inflammatories that protect joint cartilage. They yield better joint-health support as a pair than as standalone supplements.
Taking resveratrol and melatonin together enhances their antioxidant, neuroprotective and cardioprotective properties.
Most adults can take resveratrol supplements without experiencing significant adverse effects. Mild gastrointestinal upset or nausea may occur in some. Individuals taking anti-clotting medication or certain pain relievers should consult a physician before taking resveratrol supplements, as resveratrol may interact with them.
