Resveratrol – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Resveratrol is a highly active, phytonutrient compound found in over 70 species of plants, including common food sources like blueberries, cranberries, cocoa, wine and peanuts that research is beginning to show may help prevent chronic diseases or the progression of chronic disease through multiple immune functions.

It’s a nutrient that possesses polyphenol compounds which are micronutrients from certain plant-based foods that scientists are now demonstrating to have phenomenal anti-aging benefits in addition to numerous immune boosting and therapeutic benefits, including:

  •  Anti-inflammatory

  • Cardiovascular protective

  • Antioxidant

  • Antiaging – promote healthy cellular function

  • Lower blood pressure by increasing Nitric Oxide in blood stream

  • Support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides

  • Improve Insulin Sensitivity in Type 2 Diabetics

  • Anticancer / Chemopreventive Properties – this a very exciting area of research right now for Resveratrol, specifically in Immune response to cancers.

  • Brain Health (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Vascular Dementia, Stroke)
  • Depression

  • Antifungal

  • Antiviral

  • Antibacterial

  • Boost Natural Killer (NK) Cells in our body

Resveratrol’s actions in our body appear to have broadly similar antioxidant effects to that of other polyphenols such as quercetin and catechins found in green tea however, resveratrol appears to further interact with a large number of receptors, molecules and enzymes in our body as well which may be the major contributions to its beneficial biological effects and health benefits.  

As a matter of fact, in vivo, resveratrol has been shown to promote the activities of sirtuins, proteins in our body that help to regulate cellular health, and some researchers have speculated that this activity might support resveratrol’s help with not only improving cellular function but also its benefit with healthy aging in the body. 


Although all of these immune boosting and health benefits of resveratrol are very exciting there is one obstacle that needs to be overcome in order of us to  get all of these great therapeutic benefits: the bioavailability (ability of our body to absorb) of resveratrol.

A number of studies have demonstrated that resveratrol and other polyphenols, like green tea, have very low bioavailability, and this has caused concerns that many of the beneficial effects of resveratrol may not be difficult to achieve if a poor source is used.

As always, I will only recommend the highest quality and most bioavailable supplemental product I can find and in this case, there is no doubt in my mind, if you want the greatest benefits possible from supplemental Resveratrol, then our Premier Resveratrol is the way to go.

The premier resveratrol is a liquid supplement designed to support absorption of the full spectrum of resveratrol’s phytonutrients through fermentation.  With the use of high quality resveratrol that has been micro-cultured with beneficial probiotics, Premier Resveratrol can be naturally absorbed so it immediately provides high quality nutrition…..even for those with poor digestion!

Make it a Healthy Day!!
