Resveratrol Wild-Crafted (Formerly Known as Acta-Resveratrol)
Supports healthy aging*
- Antioxidant responsible for the health benefits of red wine
- Promotes nutrient absorption for those on a calorie-restrictive diet
- Supports normal cell development
Resveratrol is a plant compound known as a polyphenol, and naturally occurs in grapes, dark chocolate, various berries, and some herbs. In a trans-form for easy absorption, Resveratrol provides a rich source of antioxidants that helps to combat the damaging effects that medications, pollution, UV rays, and dietary choices have on cell health. Studies have shown that resveratrol reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the incidence of arterial plaque formation. Its most unique application is that it mimics the biological effects of eating a calorie restricted diet, which has many different health benefits.
While red grapes are high in resveratrol, they are often extremely costly, and require massive amounts of energy, chemicals, and environmental resources to grow, maintain, and extract nutrients from. AOR’s Resveratrol is sourced from wildcrafted Japanese knotweed, a naturally-occurring plant of the dock family. Japanese knotweed is listed by the World Conservation Union (UICN) as one of the world’s 100 most invasive species. Rather than horticulture societies attempting to eradicate these weeds with herbicides releasing harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, AOR is contributing to manual control by using the knotweed as our preferred source of Resveratrol. Furthermore, Japanese Knotweed yields more trans-resveratrol which is the more active form. Having Resveratrol Wild-Crafted in a naturally tinted softgel also helps maintain the integrity of the antioxidant which is otherwise subject to light, heat, and oxygen exposure.
AOR’s Resveratrol Wild-Crafted is formulated in a carrageenan-free vegan softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions. As Japanese knotweed is considered an invasive plant species, AOR’s Resveratrol is a superior option when considering sustainability.
Resveratrol is a compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs recognized for its beneficial properties. Resveratrol is formulated with AOR’s patent pending Vsoftgel™ technology, to provide greater absorption for this fat-soluble nutrient.*
