The Process Of Aging

How Resveratrol Supports Healthy Aging

Acts As An Antioxidant

Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive molecules important in physiological processes, like battling infection. These molecules are powerful and physically destroy microbes to kill them, but they can do the same to healthy cells [1, 2]. To keep them in check, our body naturally produces free radical scavengers called antioxidants, however, their production plummets as we age. Resveratrol is a natural and powerful antioxidant that can safeguard our cells against free radicals.

Role As An Anti-Inflammatory

Inflammation is the body's way of responding to injury or infection, and it plays an important role in the healing process. However, inflammation can also lead to a host of health problems including heart disease, stroke, and cognitive decline, especially as we age. For this reason, it's important to keep inflammation under control. Resveratrol has been proven to induce anti-inflammatory effects, promote the healing process, and reduce the risks of these diseases [3, 4].

Mimics The Chemical Pathways Of Caloric Restriction

Caloric restriction has been shown to have a range of health benefits including DNA repair, protection against oxidative stress, and increasing anti-aging genes called Sirtuins. But sometimes it can be difficult to stick to a calorie-restricted diet. Resveratrol mimics the induction of the protective pathways of caloric restriction, providing an alternative way to reap its benefits to prevent age-associated cellular deterioration, without having to cut back on calories.

Boosts Energy Levels, Improves Cognitive Function, Regulates Blood Sugar

Resveratrol has been shown to boost energy levels [9, 10] and improve memory and focus [11]. It has also been shown to protect against age-related cognitive decline and reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease [12], promote healthy blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes [13].
