If you’ve ever heard health advice suggesting you to drink wine or eat grapes, then it’s because of a recently discovered compound called resveratrol. While we’ve researched and debunked many of the “miracle supplements” on the market, resveratrol is one that has withstood scientific scrutiny. In this section, we’ll cover what resveratrol is, where it comes from, how it can be obtained, and its different properties.
Additionally, we will also cite and share the medical journals/studies that were used to uncover resveratrol’s properties.
Resveratrol has many different forms and each have their own unique use and properties. We have more in-depth guides that you can reference on the specifics (just click below).
Every form of resveratrol has its own specific health benefits. For example, the creams are powerful moisturizers and have neuropathic pain relief properties, but, the supplements do not. In this section we’ll quickly cover the health benefits of each form as well as the most common myths.
Note: when we say something is a myth, we’re saying it because there’s not enough scientific literature the back up the claims. In some cases, the literature might state that there’s evidence of a benefit but that there’s no definitive proof – in those cases, we consider it a myth.
