A recent review of human clinical research on Resveratrol conducted at the University of Florida confirms that Resveratrol is safe for human consumption, and that Resveratrol improves blood flow and insulin resistance, and decreases oxidative stress and inflammation in humans.
“This review demonstrates Resveratrol’s potential to lessen the progression of aging, improve health and prevent chronic disease,” said UF exercise psychologist Heather Hausenblas, one of the researchers involved in the study. “However, further clinical research examining the benefits of Resveratrol in humans is much needed.”
Resveratrol, a potent polyphenol found in red wine, is believed to explain the French Paradox, a term used to describe the observation that the French population has a very low incidence of cardiovascular disease despite a diet high in saturated fats. The goal of Resveratrol supplementation is to provide concentrated amounts of Resveratrol in its most active and beneficial form for human consumption, trans-Resveratrol.
Reserveage™ Organics, a local Gainesville company, manufactures Resveratrol-based supplements with Pro-Longevity Factor Resveratrol™, a patented blend that mimics a whole glass of red wine by pairing trans-Resveratrol with the skins, seeds, vines and stems of organicFrench red grapes and USDA certified organic muscadine red grapes. Quercetin is added to improve the absorption and bioavailabity of the Resveratrol.
“This comprehensive study shows promise for future Resveratrol clinical trials,” said Naomi Whittel, CEO and founder of Reserveage. “We are looking forward to the findings of research currently studying the potential effects of our trademarked Resveratrol on human infirmities.”
Reserveage’s Pro-Longevity Factor Resveratrol is currently being used in several human trials, including a randomized double-blind human clinical study sponsored by the Department of Aging and Geriatric Research at the University of Florida’s Institute on Aging, and a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health at the University of Miami.
