It's a harrowing thought and one that makes us all wonder ‘Am I doing enough to look after my heart?'
Resveratrol is an antioxidant that was discovered in quite unusual circumstances. It came to light when a group of researchers wanted to determine why so many French people (particularly from southern regions of the country) were able to enjoy a diet so rich in saturated fats yet enjoy relatively low rates of heart disease.
What they came to uncover was known as the ‘French Paradox'. It transpired that by enjoying a small amount of red wine each day, they were actually getting a healthy, regular dose of the antioxidant Resveratrol from the grape-seeds.
Swanson Ultra Resveratrol 250 isn't made from grape-seeds, it comes from another, more readily sourceable origin, Japanese Knotweed or Polygonum Cuspidatum. It turns out that it has been used for it's Resveratrol for even longer than the French have drunk wine.
Japanese Knotweed has been a staple part of the Chinese and Japanese diets for centuries. It has consistently offered superior gastrointestinal and circulatory health because of not only its Resveratrol content but also several other similarly structured compounds found in the plant.
The Resveratrol in the plant is mostly sourced from the antioxidant ‘stilbenes' and the ‘anthraquinones' which helps to clear the circulatory system and protect us from certain forms of heart disease.
