Resveratrol is considered by many people in the health & wellness industry to be the leading anti-aging breakthrough of the decade.  When you discuss resveratrol and what it can do to the skin, it’s easy to find all of the positive effects it can have.  The subject of over 2000 research publications, this powerful anti-oxidant is an all-natural compound found commonly in grapes, and grape-derived products such as red wine.

As red wine is a rich source of resveratrol, many sources will reference resveratrol as “red wine polyphenols,” “red-wine extract,” etc.  Unfortunately, there is a great deal of misinformation about resveratrol, so you need to keep this in mind when reviewing articles and marketing information about related products.  As resveratrol is found in the skins of grapes, red wine will provide several times more resveratrol than white wine.  Grape skins are not used in the production of white wine.  As resveratrol is vulnerable to fairly rapid destruction by light and oxygen, the fact that wine is stored in air-tight, cool conditions away from sun light protects the resveratrol content.  Only immediately after a bottle of wine is opened is the maximum resveratrol potency available.  Since making wine also involves the potential damage from alcohol and preservatives, a topical solution is obviously preferred for resveratrol intake, rather than having to open and immediately consume dozens of bottles of red wine in one sitting.  The quantity of resveratrol contained in most topical solutions is generally the equivalent of the amount of resveratrol contained in well over 100 bottles of red wine.

Resveratrol has become the star of anti-aging and cellular health studies worldwide. Accordingly, these same studies have shown that the anti-aging gene can actually be activated by resveratrol.
