The French get their resveratrol from red wine. But you can get the heart-healthy benefits of resveratrol from Red Defense... and without the alcohol, sulfites, headaches or high calories.*
Resveratrol is a natural substance found in many plants, including grapes, wine and peanuts. The fascination with resveratrol began with the knowledge consideration that intake of it and other polyphenol compounds from red wine may contribute to the "French paradox", the unexpectedly high rate of good cardiovascular health in France and Mediterranean populations, despite a diet that is relatively high in saturated fat.Reseveratrol has also been shown to extend the lifespan of laboratory animals. Human studies are also underway, but it will take many years to determine if resveratrol will have similar benefits in humans.*
Each one-capsule serving of Red Defense delivers 140 mg of resveratrol standardized to 50% resveratrol; plus it is fortified with 250 mg of Pomegranate extract, rich in ellagic acid and polyphenols, for an extra boost in antioxidant activity which may help reduce oxidative stress.*
