Supporting Arterial Health

Resveratrol supports heart health by inhibiting a small group of proteins known as vascular cell adhesion molecules that may play a part in attracting white cells into the arterial wall.
Resveratrol is also a form of phytoestrogen, naturally occurring plant-derived compounds with a similar structure to estrogen, a sex hormones in men and women. Plant estrogens are weaker forms of estrogen, yet are able to support the same physiological activity.
While estrogen has no known role in men, it promotes the development of the female sexual organs and supports a healthy reproductive system in women.
It is important to keep estrogen levels balanced. Levels in men and women can become undesirably high due to obesity, stress and exposure to xenoestrogens, or substances like pesticides, heated plastic and commercially raised animal products.
