Bluebonnet’s Age-Less™ Trans-Resveratrol 100 mg Vcaps provide the active trans isomer from 4:1 red wine extract and Japanese knotweed (a more concentrated source of trans-resveratrol) that has undergone an enzymatic purification process rendering it virtually free of impure compounds commonly found in lower quality resveratrol products. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Bluebonnet Nutrition is proud to introduce to its line of antioxidants, Age-Less Trans-Resveratrol Vcaps that provide the active trans isomer of resveratrol in three potencies: 100,250, and 500 mg. Bluebonnet's Age-Less Trans-Resveratrol formulas provide a 4:1 red wine extract and Japanese knotweed that has undergone an enzymatic purification process rendering it virtually free of impure compounds commonly found in lower quality resveratrol products. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring polyphenol that was first isolated in the 1940's from white hellebore root (Veratum grandifolium), a member of the lily family. Since then, it has been discovered that over 70 plant species including grapes, Japanese knotweed, mulberries and peanuts are rich sources of this particular heart healthy constituent. In fact, in 1963, resveratrol was discovered to be the active constituent within the dried roots of Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum) that was historically utilized in traditional Asian medicine for heart health. Today, it is the richest source of natural trans-resveratrol available on the market. In fact, Japanese knotweed contains 50% trans-resveratrol per gram, replacing grape by-products because the amount of trans-resveratrol is exponentially higher than found in grape skin.
Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is classified as a phytoalexin compound - antibiotics produced naturally within plants as a defense response to injury, like UV radiation, fungal attacks an/or infections. However, in the body, resveratrol has been shown to interact with many different proteins or enzymes, including cycloaxgenases, ribnucleotide reductase and DNA polymerases. Thus, resveratrol's activity cannot be correlated to just one unique mechanism of action, but most likely results from various complementary biochemical pathways that have been shown to be beneficial in cellular, cardiovascular and glucose/insulin activity, as well as neurological health.
These scientific discoveries related to resveratrol have spurred scientists to unravel the "French Paradox," which is the surprising low incidence of cardiovascular disease in France, where the consumption of red wine and a high-fat diet is the norm. It has been proposed by researchers that the "paradox" might be due to the routine consumption of fresh grapes and resveratrol-rich wine. In fact, fresh grape skins provide 50 to 100 mcg of resveratrol per gram. Red wine varieties rich in resveratrol provide typically 1 mg of total resveratrols in a 5-ounce glass of red wine. Bluebonnet's Age-Less Trans-Resveratrol Vcaps provide 100, 250, and 500 mg of the active, trans isomer per capsule from both red wine extract and Japanese Knotweed.
Not only does Bluebonnet offer the highest potency trans-resveratrol products on the market at 100mg, 250mg, and 500mg potencies, but we also offer the best quality value by including resveratrol-rich red wine extract in each formula - all of which are gluten-free and 100% vegetarian. Plus, while many competitors chose to list their resveratrol as "total resveratrol," which contains the less expensive/desirable and less biovailable/stable cis form of resveratrol, Bluebonnet had made the conscious decision to launch just trans-resveratrol to guarantee that the French Paradox is optimally captured in every Vcap.
