Studies on Resveratrol

Resveratrol is the all-natural antioxidant found in the skins of red grapes and red wine. For over 20 years, scientists and researchers have studied the effects of resveratrol and red wine and have observed numerous health benefits linked to the regular consumption of resveratrol. Below are just a few of the published studies on the health benefits of resveratrol.
