What Is Resveratrol?
It is a compound found naturally in foods such as grapes, nuts, red wine, peanuts, some berries, and possibly in other fruits and plants. As a result of the large amount of publicity about the French Paradox Study discussed on the website, researchers investigating the potential positive effects of red wine consumption eventually focused on resveratrol, one of the substances found in red wine. Other studies followed and the research continues today…

Products to Avoid
Avoid supplement products which are made from low-purity trans-resveratrol, because they contain unacceptably high amounts of Emodin. Emodin can act as a laxative and cause stomach cramps and intestinal distress. Read more about it on this website.
Avoid products that contain additional ingredients such as additives, fillers, or other substances.
Avoid any supplement when the label says it contains a "proprietary blend." If there is no ingredient label displayed, you don't want it. If the company won't tell you what is in it, you shouldn't take it.

What is 'The French Paradox'
In Vino Sanitus …in wine there is health
There was a report some years ago on the TV program "60 Minutes" about a study that examined what is known as the "French Paradox" Study. The French Paradox Study demonstrated that the folks in France were less likely to die from heart disease even though they consumed high fat diets. It was noted in the study that the French consumed large amounts of red wine and the theory developed that the red wine somehow protected the hearts of the wine drinking French people.
Numerous other studies followed and the substance attracted much scientific interest as the possible compound in red wine that may be an important factor in the positive heart healthy effects.
