    Resveratrol displayed potent antifungal activity against human pathogenic fungi (disease causing yeast). Resveratrol's ability to kill Candida albicans, the yeast that causes monilial infections in humans was confirmed under electron microscopy. These results suggest that Resveratrol could be employed as a therapeutic agent to treat fungal infections in humans.
