How do the French eat such unhealthy and fatty foods yet remain healthy and live longer than most other Western citizens? Resveratrol – they get plenty of it.
Resveratrol is one of the most powerful antioxidants – highly effective in mopping up the disease generating free radicals (think of free radicals as rust) generated by our bodies in the process of living our everyday lives.
As it happens Resveratrol is produced by grapes – and is found in good quantities in the skins of red grapes. This is especially the case if those grapes have been stressed in the process of forming and developing to ripeness. This happens more with good quality red wines – because that stressing concentrates flavour.
Thus the rude health of our French friends – they take plenty of red wine. In recent times, the discovery of Resveratrol and its effects has enabled extraction and concentration into capsules.
Our friends, and fellow Hawke’s Bay company NaturalMeds, import leading natural health supplements from around the world and sell them to health practitioners, pharmacies and health shops across Australia and New Zealand. Resveratrol capsules are one of NaturalMeds’ most popular products. Trans-Resveratrol 200 with ResVinol-25™ is a high-potency resveratrol formulation and an amazing antioxidant – with one capsule providing the same Resveratrol dose as anywhere from 150-200 glasses of red wine! Take that Pierre!
