Most people know of resveratrol because of its prevalence in red wine, but what’s so great about this compound? Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that protects the DNA of cells and your body from damage due to free radicals. Free radicals can be caused by pollution, sunlight exposure, or our bodies natural burning of fat. Free radicals can lead to disease, cancers, aging, or brain damage. Resveratrol has been known to have several health benefits combating free radicals, to include:
- Protection of the heart and circulatory system
- Lower cholesterol
- Protect against blood clots
- Lower blood sugar levels
- Reduce the incidence of skin and gastrointestinal cancers
- Weight loss benefits
- Preventing oxidative stress, which is caused by UV radiation
Definitive studies on the long-term effects and conclusive health benefits to humans have yet to be conducted, but promising studies in labs and with animals suggest that resveratrol does reduce the prevalence of heart disease, among its other health benefits. Resveratrol is most abundantly found in berries, peanuts, and red grapes, but its bioavailability is rather low since it’s quickly metabolized and eliminated.
LENTEIN has been found to have similar levels of resveratrol as compared to similar servings of grapes, which is very exciting. When looking to add a healthy protein supplement to your diet with strong antioxidant benefits, consider LENTEIN.
