One of the many amazing ingredients in our 10-in-One Super Formula chewable is Resveratrol, the ultimate anti-aging nutrient.
Resveratrol, the longevity-promoting compound from red wine, is making headline news. On a recent segment of CBS 60 Minutes, top researchers claimed it as a "fountain of youth," Resveratrol was similarly praised as an anti-aging "miracle" on the ABC News special Live to be 150 with Barbara Walters. FOX News has proclaimed the red wine supernutrient to be the "holy grail of anti-aging," and on The Oprah Winfrey Show, "America's Doctor" Mehmet Oz has spoken glowingly of how resveratrol can "turn on cellular chemistry that allows you to live longer and better."

Resveratrol, a chemical compound found in red grapes, the skin of grapes, blueberries, cranberries and peanuts, has been found to have many anti-aging and health promoting benefits. Plants naturally produce this substance to fight both fungi and bacteria when under attack by these pathogens.
Scientists started to study Resveratrol when they observed that the French consume much greater amounts of saturated fats in their diet, indulge in lots of wonderful creamy sauces, and yet have an unexpectedly lower incidence of cardiovascular disease than Americans. This phenomenon known as "The French Paradox" suggested that the greater amounts of red wine consumption by the French had protective side effects against the disease. Intensive research led to the identification of Resveratrol. The diverse health benefits associated with this compound include its anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammatory activity, anti-viral activity, antioxidant activity (including the protection of glutathione, our "master" antioxidant) and its brain and cardiovascular protective qualities.
