Resveratrol 1000 contains a therapeutic dose of 1000mg of resveratrol which includes the potent active form; trans-resveratrol. Resveratrol activates longevity genes that influence lifespan, metabolism, cellular health and reverses the effects of aging. Resveratrol 1000 includes 100mg of quercetin - another powerful polyphenol that boosts the absorption of resveratrol.Resveratrol 1000 - Fights Free Radicals and Reverses Aging
The most important action of resveratrol is its effect on raising NAD+ levels to turn on SIRT1; a longevity gene that promotes demethylation . DNA methylation, the placing of markers on repaired DNA, is a hallmark of accelerated aging because these markers prevent protein synthesis. Sirtuins are molecules in the cells that can remove methyl groups to reverse aging. But sirtuins are only activated if they are combined with NAD+ to remove methyl groups from genes after DNA repair. Since resveratrol increases NAD+ levels and quercetin also enhances the action of SIRT1, this powerful polyphenolic combination helps the cells fight aging. It’s also a powerful antioxidant and protects mitochondria from oxidative stress.Resveratrol and Quercetin for Weight Loss
The combination of resveratrol and quercetin have an effect on weight loss by increasing the activity of the enzyme lipase to break down fat more effectively. Yet, when resveratrol and quercetin are applied individually, each had no such effect on fat. In fact, the synergistic effect between resveratrol and quercetin suggests that when these molecules are combined, a great number of metabolic pathways are activated to control fat. It’s also been shown that resveratrol and quercetin work together to help break down fat for mitochondria to use as fuel.
Note: Resveratrol is oil soluble and must be consumed with a healthy fat such as MCT oil, coconut oil, coconut cream, full fat yogurt etc. Resveratrol is not absorbed when taken with water (coffee, tea, soda, etc.), it is deactivated by water in as little as 15 minutes.
