Resveratrol Plus delivers a highly bioavailable proprietary blend of three powerful antioxidants (Resveratrol, Turmeric, and Quercetin) for potent protection against cell-damaging free radicals.
Resveratrol is often referred to as the key ingredient responsible for the French-paradox' - the reason why the French maintain good health while consuming rich foods and alcohol. Resveratrol may also contribute to the normal functioning of the cardiovascular system. Each serving of Resveratrol Plus contains the equivalent active resveratrol of over 64 glasses of red wine. Resveratrol Plus is a natural polyphenol, meaning compounds found abundantly in natural plant food sources. Examples of these natural sources are red wine (grape skin), peanuts and some plants, such as Japanese Knotweed (polygonum cuspidatum).
Turmeric Root Extract - more than just a culinary ingredient, this bright yellow spice also boasts several health-boosting properties. Elite Nutrients Turmeric Root extract contains a standardised dose, meaning you can be assured of a consistent dose of the active ingredient curcumin in every capsule.
The active ingredients in turmeric include beneficial flavonoids called curcuminoids, which are plant-based antioxidants. They help fight cell damaging free radicals in the body. Native to South East Asia, turmeric is part of the ginger family, with a long history of traditional Ayurvedic use.
Quercetin is a plant pigment (flavonoid). It is found in many plants and foods, such as red wine, onions, green tea, apples, berries, Ginkgo biloba, St. John's wort, American elder, and others. Buckwheat tea has a large amount of quercetin. People use quercetin as a medicine. Flavonoids have the ability to neutralise free radicals, converting them to be less reactive compounds therefore reducing their potential to harm cells. Quercetin is actually the most researched bioflavonoid used in human trials and scientists are very excited by its potential benefits to health. One of the most recent studies demonstrated its importance to cardiovascular health, but for more information on this fascinating nutrient, simply search it online. In addition to its antioxidant properties, it is also involved in inhibiting the production and release of histamines.
