This is not about trusting one person or another.
I informed this group that what Ryan Hyuck recommended were unproven products where the science is assumed from studies with research-grade resveratrol in lab animals. He is the scientist, he should know better. One brand of resveratrol was demonstrated in an animal study to protect the heart twice as well as plain resveratrol. That should be meaningful since once heart muscle cells are damaged due to a heart attack, they are not easily or rapidly repaired. And I can't believe he would fall for a product where the manufacturer is unknown, the label appears to be produced on a copy machine and affixed to the bottle, and where there is no supplement facts panel to examine. But he is advising others because he is a "scientist." There are about 12 published studies involving branded resveratrol products. 8 of them involve a single brand and all were positive studies. 3 others involve another mega-dose brand, and 2 of those studies were failed studies. Maybe this gives you an idea of the limited science involving over 350 brands of resveratrol pills.

Please show us all the studies involving resveratrol and more energy among firemen and marathon runners. I don't find it at the National Library of Medicine

A prior posting objected to my assertion that humans achieve higher blood concerntrations of resveratrol than lab animals. For the sake of documentation, I cite a report published in CELL METABOLISM, Volume 14, pages 612-22, Nov. 2011, where 150 mg of resveratrol was employed among eleven healthy but overweight males for 30 days. I quote from that study: "...Although the dosage of 150 mg of resveratrol is around 133- to 266-fold lower compared to the high doses of 200-400 mg/per kilogram of body weight per day used to supplement mice (that would be equivalent to 14,000 to 28,000 mgs in humans), blood plasma resveratrol levels in our human intervention (231 nanograms/milliliter) were even highher than those obtained in mice (10-120 nanograms/milliliter)." In other words, it took the human equivalent of thousands of milligrams of resveratrol to produce a blood concentration in mice that was 2-20 times lower than 150 mg achieved in humans. It is easy to see here that the dosing in lab animals cannot be directly transferred to humans. Low-dose resveratrol is safer and more effective, as evidenced by the consumption of wine which reduces coronary artery disease mortality. One contributor here at this site mistakenly claimed humans do not develop higher blood levels than lab animals. That assertion can be laid to rest now.

I have been using an all American muscadine grape brand called Muscadinex. It has 650mg of pure muscadine grape trans-resveratrol, and contains no Japanese Knotweed. I have not noted any unwanted side effects and I got a free vitamin D3 with it...bargain

I appreciate everyone's replies. Although there are many opinions here, I decided to go with Biotivia Transmax Transreveratrol, 500 mg. very cheap at walgreens compared to elsewhere. it sounds like TRANS resveratrol is the most helpful ingredient and this product seems to have a lot with 500mg.
i just ordered it.

Does anyone have an opinion on this product and what are its benefits? on the amazon user comments under biotivia there were a lot of positive replies and some negative, so it's hard to sort through it all

also what should i take this pill with (they said omega 3 pills - is fish oil pill ok) and what time of day? thanks

Yes, why 500 mg? That is a potentially toxic dose. Resveratrol is low dose is antioxidant and high dose is pro-oxidant. You are buying on price, not value, and not a product that has been succesfully tested. Two published studies show 6 of 8 users got diarrhea from the product and another showed it was ineffective in helpling with brain function.

How did you develop a resveratrol deficiency in the first place?

Doesn't a good diet provide you with a sufficient amount of resveratrol?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 7, 2012 6:26:15 AM PDT
Since resveratrol is not an essential nutrient, there is no such thing as a deficiency.
The diet would provide, from peanuts, grapes, berries, maybe a few micrograms of resveratrol, which is trivial. Wine provides a few milligrams (1000-times more) but you have to consume 3-5 glasses a day to achieve optimal health benefits. The res pills are the best answer to this problem, taken in modest dose.

Since Mr. Sardi has never mentioned the brand he is associated with, I am inclined to value his integrity. I wish he would name his product; but appreciate why he refrains from doing so.

I have found the best for my family to be the vineyard blend capsules, made by NSA juice plus. It is the only whole food nutritional product that is pharmaceutical grade and backed by gold standard clinical studies. Not only are you getting resveratrol, you are also getting all the other vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are contained in the berries, all in all a proven and effective product. I have to tell you, that after seeing the results in my household, I became a distributor, I am also a former critical care Nurse. For our family, our energy increased gradually, our blood work improved and we honestly have not had so much as a cold since starting on it. OBTW I was the BIGGEST sceptic! LOL! good luck! www.EvidenceBasedJuicePlus.com

Another self-interested party, suggesting a product that has little if any resveratrol. God, when will all this self promotion stop.
So if this is the best you could find, has it undergone any studies? What is the dose of resveratrol it provides?
The link you provide says something about "evidence based," so provide the evidence.

I'm wondering why 500mg is considered potentially harmful when discussing the test results, the amount used was ten times more at 5000mg?

2 glasses of wine and your driving begins to be impaired; 3-5 glasses is the point of inebriation, which the French achieve regularly.
Mortality from coronary heart disease declines dramatically with this intake level of wine, but not cancer, and there is liver disease due to the alcohol.
Certainly, regular imbibers are looking for license to drink. No free license can be given. This is why physicians have hesitated, despite the fact wine is the best medicine, from prescribing wine.

Other studies performed in animals showed that if high doses were employed and a heart attack was intentionally induced in an animal, the high-dose resveratrol actually made a heart attack worse (larger area of scarring). The equivalent human dose that was protective was 175-350 mg, but higher doses are likely to be problematic. Even lower doses, 100 mg resveratrol when combined with other molecules, was twice as protective as plain resveratrol. So lower doses are highly recommended. The 5000 mg dose was for a completely different purpose -- for dying cancer patients to intentionally use a toxic dose to kill cancer cells. For everything outside of cancer, the lower doses are appropriate.

Regarding price, it is a consumers market -- there are 350 brands. If any brand of resveratrol pill will do, then you can save a lot of money.
But then, the game consumers play is they want to know all the science (good reason to take resveratrol), but make their decision to buy on price.
There is a wide difference in quality, and the top price will not necessarily buy the highest quality. It is often said, quality-service-price, pick
any two of the three. If you want a product proven in human and animal studies, then look for that. What they use in the laboratory is research-grade
resveratrol which is frozen and sealed in an airtight vial. Resveratrol is vulnerable to degradation from light, heart and oxygen. So packaging and
encapsulation may be important. You may be consuming biologically inactive powder (cis resveratrol) rather than the active trans resveratrol.

You should consider Youngevity's Resveratrol. It is by far the highest quality product available. A recent study in the Journal of Physiology has further concluded that the amazing and powerful antioxidant Resveratrol improves exercise performance, heart function, and muscle strength. And if that wasn't enough, the study also showed significant benefits in energy metabolism. What does all this mean? It means Resveratrol is a nutrient that has far reaching benefits in health and wellness and should be taken daily for those seeking great health.

The nutrient, so closely linked to the consumption of red wine and grapes, has been on the tip of most nutraceutical researchers since a team from Harvard in 2003 found that it increased the life of yeast cells. From there, researchers began to find that Resveratrol was able to actually penetrate the cell and further strengthen the areas that lead to energy production (metabolism) and provide protective benefits against damaging free radicals.

This new research is groundbreaking because one of the issues with increased activities and exercise is the further damage of cells and tissues caused by the increase production of toxic metabolites. Those individuals that are sensitive to these toxins, specifically those who are undergoing dramatic weight loss or have other health-related issues, could be susceptible to further breakdown. However, with daily intake of Resveratrol, using high-quality ingredients, research has shown that it can be incredibly protective in areas from the heart to the head!

Youngevity's Cell Shield RTQ™ delivers a highly bioavailable, proprietary blend of three powerful antioxidants (Resveratrol, Turmeric, and Quercetin) for potent protection against cell-damaging free radicals.* Take two capsules per day and you'll get the equivalent of 293 glasses of red wine. There is nothing better... Do your homework and ask questions because in our world there is a lot of deception to get you to buy their products...

Stop the advertising! There is no evidence provided that Youngevity brand resveratrol is higher quality than others. The study in the Journal of Physiology did not use that brand. Quit trying to fool people.

WOW Bill.... I hear you every weekend on my radio promoting Purity products and I think to myself... Oh boy, when I begin the "REAL" promotion of the best of the best resveratrol products on the market... We will see who has the ultimate resveratrol.

Bill, Dr Wallach has been taking said product since it's development and when 2 capsules equal the intake of 293 glasses of red wine... YOU nor anyone else comes even close to what Youngevity puts out...

Besides Bill... Are YOU taking the 90 essential minerals, vitamins, amino acids and EFA's that your body NEEDS EVERYDAY?

To anyone who is seeking the God's truth on the best... Youngevity Products are #1 Period! Do the research and compare and you'll see... There is none.

No evidence? YOU are a knucklehead... No differents in quality? Put your product up against ours and you'll choke trying to explain what you really mean. NO ONE but NO ONE puts out a better Resveratrol product... I heard you say that the product you speak of is equal to only 3 glasses of wine per 2 capsules... Now just add another 290 and you can talk.

Is this what you are going to do in life, troll around the internet and schlep for business? I am not posting about any brand of resveratrol here, you are, so put up the evidence or shut up.

William Sardi, call me a troll or whatever you may as what you do well is call people names, however you really should look up the term OCPD. WOW! This will be my only post on the matter. Good day. :)

I post here because I am knowledgeable of resveratrol. I choose not to promote any commercial interests. When someone posts a claim their resveratrol is better than others, I posted a demand to provide evidence of that. One of the real problems with message boards like this is that it gravitates to name calling, as you do. If what you post makes a contribution to readers here so they are not misled about resveratrol, then fire away with needed information.
