Resveratrol is a plant compound that supports the healthy expression of genes associated with slowing down aspects of the aging process — as well as overall health. Optimized Resveratrol also contains synergistic phytonutrients like quercetin, trans-pterostilbene, fisetin, plus a red grape and wild blueberry fruit blend for additional polyphenols, anthocyanins, and more.
Benefits at a Glance
Read More About Resveratrol
Studies show that calorie-restriction diets can activate youthful gene expression, a process that slows down certain aspects of aging. But resveratrol triggers many of the same favorable gene expression changes as calorie restriction, without the difficult diet to adhere to.
Resveratrol’s health benefits
Found in red grapes, resveratrol may be the most effective compound for maintaining optimal health and promoting longevity1 — the most active form of which is trans-resveratrol.
In higher doses, resveratrol promotes healthy insulin sensitivity, encourages enhanced mitochondrial function, promotes a healthy inflammatory response, and protects against the effects of a high-fat diet.2-16 And our Optimized Resveratrol formula includes a red grape and wild blueberry blend for additional polyphenols, anthocyanins, and more.
Combining trans-pterostilbene with resveratrol confers even greater health benefits. Laboratory tests show that pterostilbene (a compound from the same chemical family as resveratrol) encourages cardiovascular health, supports glucose levels already within the normal range, and promotes cognitive health.17-25 It also encourages healthy mitochondrial and metabolic function,26,27 promotes antioxidant activity,19,23 and supports a healthy inflammatory response.19,23,28
Also contains Fisetin and Quercetin
The flavonol compound fisetin can "switch on" the cell-signaling molecules for youthful gene expression, DNA protection, healthy cellular function,29 and even supports vulnerable neurons against the presence of oxidative stress.28,30-34 And research indicates that fisetin synergistically enhances resveratrol, stabilizing it and shielding it from metabolic breakdown.35
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that promotes cardiovascular health,36-39 supports healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range,40 helps reduce oxidative stress, promotes a healthy inflammatory response in blood vessel walls as a result of healthy gene expression,41 and supports healthy blood glucose levels already within normal range.42-48
