Resveratrol Pill

The concentration in knotweed is higher than that of other sources. Supplements are sold in liquid, powder and tablet form.

Trans-resveratrol is the most stable form of the nutrient. It is the only one that is useful to the human body.

Liquid and powder supplements are rapidly metabolized into its component parts. They do not increase the levels of trans-resveratrol circulating in the bloodstream.

The same is true of uncoated tablets. So, in order for a resveratrol pill to actually increase the levels of the nutrient in the bloodstream, it must have an enteric coating.

Experimental data has confirmed that wine does not have a higher trans-resveratrol bio-availability than a supplement with an enteric coating. In other words, dietary sources cannot provide cancer prevention or any of the other suspected health benefits.

Most of the testing has been conducted using laboratory models and cell cultures in the laboratory. But in most cases, the benefits seen in animals are translated to humans.

There have been tests to insure that the supplements are non-toxic to humans, and that has been proven. There are those who will debate that the health benefits to humans have yet to be proven, but it is actually impossible to prove that something prevents cancer.

The best that we can do is to avoid cancer-causing substances and take a properly formulated resveratrol pill, along with other beneficial supplements. My choice has always been to find a supplement that provides the highest nutritional value that I can get for an equivalent or lower price.

I know that the multi-vitamins in the drugstore are incomplete. I can read the labels.

But, I know that some companies provide a totally balanced product that supplements my nutritional intake, as much as possible. You just have to do a little research to find them.

The better companies have websites that fully outline the manufacturing processes and fully disclose the compounds present in the resveratrol pill that they sell. One of the more reputable companies admits that their supplement provides only 20% trans-resveratrol, which requires a higher daily dosage to achieve the same results that one would get with a 50% trans-resveratrol extract.

Trans-resveratrol is not the only antioxidant that may help prevent cancer. The catechins found in green tea have been shown to prevent tumor growth in scientific studies.

In fact, any antioxidant, of which there are many, has the potential to help prevent cancer, because antioxidants fight free radical damage, one of the underlying causes.
