A Potent Antioxidant
Enhance your health with Resveratrol-SR, a potent antioxidant supplement designed to release slowly for maximum bioavailability and benefit.
Benefits of taking Resveratrol-SR
- Sustained release over 24 hours
- Designed to allow optimal absorption rate
- More bioavailable than regular resveratrol
- A natural protective agent found in red wine and chocolate
- Simple dosage with great benefits
The likely source of red wine"s restorative properties1, resveratrol is an organic and synthesised compound found naturally in a number of plants. Particularly high concentrations are present in:
- the skin of red grapes
- the roots of Japanese knotweed
- cocoa powder
Produced in response to injury or attack by pathogens such as bacteria and fungi, resveratrol fortifies plants against trauma and illness and studies have suggested it can provide similar protection to humans.
What can Resveratrol do for me?
Because resveratrol acts positively on the body"s bioinflammation process, a response to injury and sickness, researchers have proposed a wide range of potential therapeutic applications. Resveratrol has been found to increase longevity in mice and yeast2, and evidence from animal models also suggests it may prevent tumour formation3, act as an antidepressive4, and act as a neuroprotective agent5.
MicroActive technology for slow release and max absorption
Because resveratrol has a short half-life of only a few hours, supplements have historically been of limited benefit; unless dosing constantly, it is difficult to maintain an effective concentration within the body.
Resveratrol-SR, however, takes advantage of MicroActive® technology, which delivers resveratrol in a special micronized, sustained-release matrix to increase its bioavailability. This means that unlike other resveratrol supplements, Resveratrol-SR provides a 24 hour effect with just one dose so there are no complex schedules or risk of taking too much or too little.
