Some of your customers most likely drink a glass of red wine at dinner. What they may not know is that they are also drinking a very beneficial nutrient—RESVERATROL! This compound actually tends to be concentrated mostly in the skins and seeds of grapes and berries-- parts of the grape that are included in the fermentation of red wine (healthline).
Let’s talk health. What are your customers most concerned about? Signs of aging? Arthritis? Brain and heart health? We thought so. Resveratrol can help in all of these areas…and more!
But HOW, you ask? Let me tell you a little bit about what this readily available nutrient can offer in supplement form, often found in capsule form:
Plant-based supplements are being studied as a way to treat and prevent joint pain, and resveratrol is one of them. It may help protect cartilage from deteriorating, thereby preventing the development of arthritis (healthline). Approximately 350 million people suffer from arthritis, so adding resveratrol to your supplement line could be the missing piece your customers need to ease their pain.
This is where the red wine comes in. Several studies have indicated that drinking red wine can help hinder age-related cognitive decline. Much of this conclusion is due to resveratrol’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. This may contribute to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. How? Resveratrol appears to interfere with protein fragments called beta-amyloids, which form the plaques that are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (healthline). While more research is needed to definitively claim that resveratrol provides protection for brain cells, one thing can be said for certain: resveratrol provides hope!
Resveratrol shows promising effects on heart health because of its antioxidant properties. A review concluded that high doses can help lower the pressure exerted on artery walls when the heart beats. This type of pressure is called systolic blood pressure, the one that typically goes up with age, as arteries become stiff. High systolic blood pressure could lead to heart disease, but with the help of a resveratrol supplement, that risk can be decreased. Resveratrol might also decrease the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which means less of a chance of plaque buildup in artery walls we should all do our part to keep clear (healthline).
People with diabetes may benefit from resveratrol, as it can protect against oxidative stress. This oxidative stress is a contributor to complications of diabetes. Meanwhile, it is believed to reduce inflammation, a contributor to chronic diseases—including diabetes (healthline).
Resveratrol sure does sound like it has a lot in store for many different people. From people with diabetes to those who suffer from joint pain caused by arthritis—this supplement is something that is either already on, or will soon be on, the minds of those who want relief, who want to do what it takes to safely improve their current state of health. And YOUR brand has the power to make this possible for so many.
