Here, Jerry speaks about the benefits of Resveratrol…
There’s a lot of research coming out on resveratrol right now. A study in the Journal of Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy looked at 75 patients who were put on resveratrol for six months. The resveratrol also had some grape seeds, some grape ingredients. I have to tell you, when you buy resveratrol, make sure it has some grape seed and some quercetin. Those are the things of nature that make the resveratrol work better. So, they gave them resveratrol or inactive placebo for half a year. Then, they extended the study to a whole year. They found that the resveratrol helped support the heart and pancreas.†
Here’s a different study. This is the Journal of Molecular Nutrition and Food Research. There are quite a few studies like this, too. They added resveratrol with some grape seed extract to statin drugs for six months. They found that this helped promote healthy cholesterol balance in the body.†
