Resveratrol what?

That’s a tongue twister! What is resveratrol anyway? Well, let’s just say that  if there’s any one supplement I would recommend, this is it! Intake of this nutrient mimics the effects on healthy aging seen in caloric restriction studies. That’s the benefits of longevity “without having to starve yourself to death”. Resveratrol, for those of you who are not familiar with it, is a very powerful antioxidant. It’s produced by some plants to protect themselves against the elements (strong rays of the sun and fungal infections). It is abundant in red wine (since it’s primarily found in grape skins) and is primarily the reason behind the French paradox. I would recommend taking it in a pill form if possible. For those wine lovers, red wine is what I would recommend, always in moderation of course. I myself can’t do it. I react weirdly to wine or any form of alcohol.
