Resveratrol – another one of those hot supplements that everyone seems to be talking about. And with good reason! Resveratrol is an amazing antioxidant.
It’s actually a plant compound - part of a group of compounds called polyphenols - that act like an antioxidant. Antioxidants prevent a chemical process known as “oxidation,” which is a natural part of living and aging. Oxidation damages cells and can lead to the development of disease, including Alzheimer's, heart disease, and cancer.
Resveratrol is found in red wine, berries and peanuts. The compound tends to be concentrated in the skins and seeds of grapes and berries. It’s these parts of the grape that are included in the fermentation of red wine which is why a glass of red wine a day may provide some health bennies.
Resveratrol has gained a lot of attention for its reported anti-aging and disease fighting powers. It is thought to help protect against heart disease by reducing inflammation while also lowering the LDL or “bad” cholesterol (making it more difficult for clots to form.) It has been shown to limit the spread of cancer cells and even start killing them. There are also studies that show it may protect nerve cells from damage and fight the plaque buildup that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease. It may also help prevent insulin resistance which can lead to Diabetes.
In addition to so many health benefits – it also does incredible things for your skin! It has shown great promise against a wide range of cutaneous disorders including skin aging and skin cancer. Its benefits vary depending on if you are taking it as a supplement or applying it topically – which is what makes it is a key component of Glotrition’s Dual Delivery Skincare™
When taken internally, as part of a supplement like Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir, Resveratrol helps protect your existing collagen as well as the new collagen as it is forming from the inside. And, as we mentioned above, Resveratrol can reduce inflammation which leads to improved circulation which helps the body fight against skin damage too!
When applied topically, like in Glotrition’s Super Beauty Serum, Resveratrol helps defend your skin’s surface by protecting it against free radicals and environmental aggressors which are constantly attacking us. It also has strong soothing properties and helps with the look of redness. Overall, it helps brighten dull looking skin from the outside.
With so many possible benefits – now is the time to add Resveratrol to your routine! And if you’re already using Glotrition products, the good news is you already have!
