Nature's Longevity NutrientRed Wine? Polyphenols?
Polyphenols in red wine possess multiple benefits for a detrimental condition called metabolic syndrome*. Researchers are learning that metabolic syndrome is an accurate predictor of heart disease, contributes to complications of diabetes and pain syndromes. Polyphenols have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, vascular-protective, and insulin-sensitizing properties. The most notable of these red wine polyphelic compounds is resveratrol. This is the compound indentified in the skin of red grapes responsible for the "French paradox".
Over 750 scientific studies have demonstrated the health promoting properties in resveratrol. Studies performed with both animals and living cells have shown resveratrol is able to effeciently promote intracellular repair, create healthier blood vessels, and protect brain tissue.
