Resveratrol Anti-Aging Part 3

Benefits for Skin Health
Our skin is the largest organ in the body, and everyone wants theirs to be beautiful and youthful looking. Resveratrol is often included in topical skin applications for its anti-aging effects. It helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and free radical damage and environmental influences that contribute to signs of aging like lines and wrinkles and discoloration. It can rejuvenate a dull complexion and soothe and minimize redness and offer protection from UV damage.
Resveratrol supports the growth of healthy skin cells and improved cellular function. It works hand-in-hand with other skin-enhancing nutrients, like biotin and collagen, to promote healthy skin structure. The benefits of resveratrol combined with ferulic acid, another powerful antioxidant that fights free radical damage, can have a powerful positive effect on skin health and anti-aging.

Benefits for Hair Loss
In conjunction with its benefits for skin health, resveratrol can help reduce hair thinning and loss. Hair follicles are found in the skin. Poor skin health will lead to poor hair follicle health. By supporting healthy skin, resveratrol helps ensure healthy hair follicles that function optimally. Resveratrol’s ability to improve circulation and blood flow is also good news for your hair and hair follicles. Optimal blood flow to hair follicles helps protect the health of those follicles and supports their ability to grow healthy hair.

What are the Side Effects of Resveratrol?
While resveratrol has many benefits to recommend its use and there have been no adverse effects reported in humans, there are some considerations to be taken before starting resveratrol supplementation. Resveratrol’s ability to improve circulation and potentially have a blood-thinning effect could be problematic for those taking blood thinners such as warfarin and aspirin or those with bleeding disorders such as hemophilia. For those preparing to undergo surgery, it may be advisable to stop resveratrol supplementation for a period before surgery to reduce bleeding risks during the procedure.

Resveratrol can also inhibit some enzymes that the body uses to process certain pharmaceutical compounds from the body. This interference could cause some medications such as blood pressure medication, mood-regulating medications, and immunosuppressants to accumulate to unsafe levels in the body.

Those with hormone-sensitive conditions, such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, or ovarian cancer should exercise caution and speak to a doctor before supplementing with resveratrol due to its mild phytoestrogenic activity. Always seek medical advice before beginning a new supplement.

What are the Health Benefits of Resveratrol Supplements?
One of the best ways to reap the benefits of natural resveratrol is by including a good variety of foods in your diet that are naturally high in resveratrol. Foods high in resveratrol also tend to be high in other nutritional co-factors to support and enhance the nutritional benefits of resveratrol.

They are also nutrient-dense foods that are, in general, important to include in a healthy, well-balanced diet. While the inclusion of alcohol in a healthy diet is controversial, red wine is a good source of food-based resveratrol. The amount of resveratrol in wine is approximately 12-13mg per liter. Not enough to reach high dose therapeutic levels, but enough to make it worth a glass of wine.

But, if you’re like most of us, getting everything your body needs from diet alone is challenging. It’s even more challenging when dealing with chronic illness and health issues that interfere with optimal nutrient absorption. Good quality and strategic supplementation can bridge the gap and give your body the tools it needs to heal and thrive.

How to Select the Best Resveratrol Supplement?
While we most often think of pills taken orally when it comes to supplements, resveratrol has very poor bioavailability when taken orally. Once consumed, clinical trials show resveratrol is metabolized by the body very rapidly making pills a poor choice mode of delivery. This is why we developed our anti-aging supplement Anti-Aging Plus Topical Patch with resveratrol along with a host of other important nutrients and cofactors for optimal delivery through the skin and right into the bloodstream where it needs to go.

If you are going to take an oral resveratrol supplement, be sure to select one that includes piperine. Piperine is an extract from black pepper that has been shown to significantly enhance the bioavailability of oral resveratrol supplements, not unlike it does for curcumin in turmeric.

How Much Resveratrol Should You Take Daily?
Resveratrol dosage can vary from person to person and depends on the mode of administration and other compounding health concerns an individual may be managing. Oral resveratrol supplements will require a higher dosage to compensate for the poor bioavailability. PatchMD’s topical patch delivers 1.5 grams of polyphenols, including a therapeutic dose of resveratrol.

Resveratrol boasts a host of health benefits both inside and out, regardless of what form of supplementation you choose. A diet high in resveratrol is an important start to a healthier you, but strategic supplementation can really give your body and mind the boost they need to help you feel your best. There is no need to waste your money on pills that don’t even work and you forget to even take when you can utilize the technology of a convenient and effective patch that gets this powerful antioxidant directly where it needs to go.
