Resveratrol: an ingredient for healthy ageing
Resveratrol is a polyphenol that is found in several types of plants. In grapes, resveratrol acts as a protector from the harsh environment. Scientific evidence suggests that it can do the same in humans working at a cellular level to assist healthy ageing. Published research and clinical data suggests that resveratrol can play a role in healthy ageing through bone health, cardiovascular health, blood glucose control, healthy cognitive function, skin youthfulness and oral health.
How Does Resveratrol Work?
Mitochondria are the powerhouses which make energy inside every cell in our bodies. As we age, mitochondrial function becomes slowly impaired. This leads to the decline of many systems in our body as we get older including cardiovascular, cognitive, skin and bone. Resveratrol has been shown to penetrate cells and help rejuvenate the mitochondria thus supporting healthier ageing. By working at this cellular level resveratrol is able to have a beneficial effect on many parts of the body. References.Learn More About How Resveratrol Works
Resveratrol has been shown in research studies to promote the formation of new-bone forming cells, which may lead to a beneficial effect on bone health. This action complements, rather than duplicates, the action of other bone supporting supplements, making resveratrol an important addition in bone health management.
Resveratrol continues to be the subject of numerous clinical studies in heart health. This research suggests that resveratrol may help the body’s cardiovascular system as it ages by supporting healthy blood flow, lowering total cholesterol, and reducing both diastolic and systolic blood pressure. Resveratrol may also have a beneficial effect on blood glucose management.
Resveratrol offers a powerful and scientifically-backed ingredient that can help rejuvenate and energise skin. Research suggests resveratrol may help reduce the intensity of age spots, improve skin elasticity and hydration, and protect against oxidative damage. In one clinical trial resveratrol was found to reduce the expression of certain pro-inflammatory cytokine genes. These genes are thought to be of major importance in the development of psoriasis. Research suggests that resveratrol may also help skin complaints such as mild acne.
Research indicates that resveratrol could be an effective ingredient in maintaining memory, processing, reasoning and executive function of the brain that may decline in older populations. Some of the beneficial effects of resveratrol that have been documented are increased blood flow to the brain and improved memory performance.
