The French have long suggested that their good health may be attributed to their consumption of red wine. Though Americans eat fewer fatty foods, exercise more and smoke less, surprisingly, the French seem to have better general cardiovascular health. This confusing phenomenon has come to be referred to as the French Paradox. Emerging research now indicates there may be truth to the idea that red wine may play a beneficial role in our health. Wine contains healthy antioxidant plant compounds called polyphenols, which help to combat harmful free radicals in the body. And studies point to one polyphenol in particular, resveratrol, as a key nutrient responsible for wine s antioxidant properties, and possibly one of the secrets behind the French Paradox. Emerging research shows that resveratrol s antioxidant properties hold numerous health benefits, including supporting heart health.
Twinlab s Resveratrol Max DOTS feature a novel, quick-dissolve tablet whose prime formula ingredient is a highly concentrated (98%) trans-resveratrol that comes from Japanese knotweed. Our proprietary resveratrol blend also includes red wine extract that contains trans-resveratrol, olegomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), and anthocyanins, three constituents of grape polyphenols that may be responsible for the French Paradox. No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives added.
