Jarrow FORMULAS® Resveratrol Synergy™ brings together resveratrol (3,4’,5-trihydroxystilbene) and other powerful antioxidants resulting in a potent synergistic formula. The resveratrol in Resveratrol Synergy™ (which yields approximately 90% resveratrol in the trans configuration) is combined with powerful antioxidant polyphenolic compounds (quercetin, and extracts from green tea, grape seed, and grape skin), resulting in a potent synergistic formula that both strengthens the cardiovascular system and modulates genes known to enhance life span.
Findings from published scientific literature indicate that resveratrol may be the most effective plant extract for maintaining optimal health and promoting longevity.1 Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a natural plant antibiotic which is produced by Vitis vinifera as a response to attack by molds. Red wine contains resveratrol, but the quantity varies depending on where the grapes are grown, the time of harvest and other factors. In fact, usually only one to three mg of resveratrol per liter of red wine is currently found, even in the most robust red wines.
Pterostilbene, a stilbene compound from the same family as resveratrol, has been shown to work synergistically with resveratrol, to unlock one’s longevity genes … thus conferring even greater anti-aging benefits.
