It is no secret that Resveratrol protects against hardening of arteries, fights high cholesterol, and aids in cancer prevention. However, recent research suggests that Resveratrol may positively affect exercise performance also. By taking Resveratrol (an antioxidant in red wine, grapes, and berries), you may help boost your endurance, prevent weight gain, and improve energy. It was found that large doses of Resveratrol mimicked physiological changes almost equal to “extensive endurance exercise training,” said Jason Dyck, study leader. Resveratrol appears to activate enzymes that help muscles use oxygen more efficiently, a performance enhancement known to runners as higher VO2 max.
The resveratrol in red wine comes from the skin of grapes used to make wine. Because red wine is fermented with grape skins longer than is white wine, red wine contains more Resveratrol. Simply eating grapes, or drinking grape juice, has been suggested as one way to get Resveratrol, but many people have found that taking a Resveratrol supplement is an easier and much more convenient way to acquire your daily value.
We suggest taking one 250 mg softgel daily.
All my best,
Stay focused and never give up!
