Resveratrol has the effect of assisting pregnancy by antioxidation and anti-inflammation. Supplementing with resveratrol can effectively help delay premature aging for those who want to conceive. It can also be obtained from food, such as grapes, which contain a large amount of resveratrol. This is to prevent fungal diseases and sunlight damage on the surface of plants. Therefore, red wine also contains resveratrol, with 1 to 2 milligrams of resveratrol in every 8 ounces of red wine.
One theory suggests that grapes grown in humid environments typically have more resveratrol than those grown in dry environments. This is because grapes grown in humid environments need to produce more resveratrol to fight against harmful fungi. Powdered resveratrol can be extracted from red wine, grape seeds, and other Polygonum extracts.
Despite the high-fat, smoking, and coffee consumption habits of the French, known to cause high cholesterol, hypertension, stroke, and heart disease, the incidence of coronary heart disease in France is lower than other Western countries. This suggests that resveratrol can effectively suppress high-fat effects. Resveratrol and its products have been developed as dietary supplements in certain countries and regions.
Pregnancy assistance - antioxidation and anti-inflammation help maintain a youthful body. Women's reproductive function declines with age, and resveratrol can delay ovarian decline, protect immature egg or oocyte cells, and increase the chance of pregnancy at an older age. By activating anti-aging genes, protecting mitochondrial function, and improving telomerase activity to protect cells from oxidative damage, animal studies have emphasized that resveratrol has a beneficial effect on the quality and quantity of eggs. Does resveratrol besides anti-inflammation also improve egg quality?
Thrombosis - Resveratrol can inhibit cyclooxygenase synthesis, which exists in leukocytes, heart, brain, lungs, and spleen. Therefore, resveratrol can prevent the formation of blood clots in blood vessels. After using antihypertensive drugs such as losartan, it can also inhibit platelet aggregation. Resveratrol can also promote burn healing by enhancing immune system activity.
Antioxidation and anti-free radical activity - Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant in plants. It mainly plays an antioxidative role by clearing or inhibiting free radical generation, inhibiting lipid peroxidation, regulating antioxidant enzyme activity, and other mechanisms. Resveratrol can antioxidize, clear free radicals, and affect arachidonic acid metabolism pharmacologically. Since these physiological metabolisms are closely related to many physiological diseases related to human health, such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, viral hepatitis, gastric ulcers, inflammation, and allergic reactions.
Protecting the cardiovascular and blood circulation system - Resveratrol is an excellent antioxidant that can protect cell DNA and prevent cell damage caused by free radicals. It also has the ability to protect the heart and blood circulation system, lower cholesterol and prevent blood clots.
