Resveratrol is an exciting natural compound found in red wine, red grape skin, Japanese Knotweed, peanuts and some berries. Resveratrol is the subject of extensive research into numerous health benefits and many scientists also believe it (along with other natural substances found in grape skin) to be responsible for the

- the French have low rates of heart disease compared to many other countries, despite the fact they have many known risk factors, including a diet high in saturated fat, smoking and ingesting a significant amount coffee. It is theorised that this effect may be due to the consumption of moderate amounts of red wine - a pastime enjoyed by many French people. Red wine is a source of resveratrol and other polyphenols found in grape skin.


Resveratrol is concentrated in the skin of red grapes, which is why red wine - especially the Pinot Noir variety - contains far higher amounts of resveratrol than white wines or grape juice. However, to obtain the optimum dose of resveratrol from red wine you would have to drink a lot of red wine each day - not very good for your liver or memory. The good news is that you don’t need to drink copious amounts of red wine to get the benefits from resveratrol, as it is also sourced from Japanese Knotweed, a herb used in traditional Japanese and Chinese medicine. Each daily capsule of Res-V Plus contains the equivalent resveratrol content of between 10 and 30 bottles of red wine (depending on the type).

(Pinus massoniana) - has been used in East Asian traditional medicine for centuries. However it has only been discovered in the last decade of the 20th century that the extract from Chinese Pine has potent antioxidant properties. Bioactive substances called polyphenols discovered in Chinese pine bark help the body’s natural cell defences against the harmful effects of free radicals. Excess free radicals destroy healthy cells, leading to many degenerative diseases. It’s important that we have natural antioxidants daily from our foods (especially found in the skins and seeds of fruit and vegetables) and supplement where necessary, to support healthy aging.
