Resveratrol is a naturally occurring antioxidant found primarily in red grape skins. Antioxidants protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals present in our food, body and environment. It helps to support your immune system and help maintain healthy skin via its antioxidant activities.
Resveratrol can also help to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. It works by expanding blood vessels and reducing the activity of cells important in blood clotting. People use resveratrol for ‘hardening of the arteries’ (atherosclerosis), lowering bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and increasing good (HDL) cholesterol levels. It can also decrease pain and inflammation.
