To all red wine lovers, there is one more compelling reason to celebrate and pour yourself another glass … resveratrol! Resveratrol—a powerful natural flavonoid antioxidant that is found in the skin of red grapes—is clinically proven to have many anti-aging and disease-fighting benefits including:
Insulin resistance: Resveratrol guards against this condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Simply put, resveratrol may help to avoid the onset of diabetes.
Lowering the risk of heart disease: Resveratrol helps reduce inflammation while preventing the oxidation of “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. This makes it harder for platelets to stick together and form the clots that may cause heart attacks
Defending against Alzheimer’s: Resveratrol may prevent the buildup of plaque in the brain.
Protects lining of the arteries necessary for blood flow.
Check out these additional surprising benefits of resveratrol:
Increase in testosterone: Testosterone levels in men decline after age 30. By the time a man is 50, their levels have already decreased by half. A Korean study demonstrated testosterone levels in mice increased over 50% with the supplementation of resveratrol. Please note, excess consumption of alcohol is related to the lowering of testosterone levels so moderation is key.
Greater endurance: A 2012 Canadian study revealed that resveratrol supplementation could mimic the skeletal muscle benefits of endurance training. Furthermore, the combination of endurance training with resveratrol supplementation resulted in improved endurance levels as high as 21%!
Better memory: Recent clinical studies conducted in Illinois reported that mice receiving resveratrol therapy had heightened mental performance and better memory.
It's difficult to dispute the evidence: resveratrol offers a myriad of health benefits to the red wine drinker. However there are those who are unable to benefit from the resveratrol in red wine due to uncomfortable and embarrassing alcohol related flushing. Many can experience brain fog with even just one glass of wine.
