If you haven’t heard about this incredible phytonutrient before, you’re in for a treat! Found in grapes, wine, chocolate, and key botanicals (e.g., Japanese knotweed extract), researchers believe that resveratrol is the secret behind the French Paradox: the juxtaposition of the standard French diet, which is high in saturated fats (*cough cough* butter) and red wine, and the relatively low rates of heart-health concerns among the French population.
The scientific explanation for the French Paradox? Like vitamin C, resveratrol helps regulate healthy blood pressure levels5 and support vascular and endothelial function6.* Additionally, resveratrol has antioxidant properties that inhibit vascular oxidative stress7 and help maintain a healthy antioxidant balance.*
Although resveratrol is extremely beneficial to our cardiovascular and whole-body health, its bioavailability is limited.* To help boost resveratrol’s bioactivity and retention in mbg’s ultimate multivitamin+ formula, we’ve added its buddy phytonutrient, piperine, so the two can work together to promote longevity and overall well-being.*
