» What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is a stilbenoid, a type of natural phenol, and a phytoalexin. These compounds are produced naturally by plants when under attack from pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.
Resveratrol can be found in foods such as red wine, grapes and peanuts.
Resveratrol's presence in red wine led many to believe it was responsible for the 'French Paradox' - the low incidence of heart disease among the French, despite their relatively high fat diet. This claim has not been unauthorised.
