What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is an extremely potent antioxidant (part of the family called polyphenols) found in certain fruits and vegetables. In nature, the highest concentration is found in grapes.
Many researchers believe that Resveratrol is primarily responsible for what's called "The French Paradox": the observation that the people of France, in general, enjoy good cardiovascular health even though their diet is high in fat.
A large number of in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that Resveratrol may increase the lifespan in human cells, reduce oxidative stress damage to the cardiovascular system by neutralizing free radicals, and help support the body's natural defenses.
Although human trials are in their infancy the wide body of research to date suggests that Resveratrol may:
- Protect cells from free radical damage
- Inhibit the spread of cancer, especially prostate cancer
- Lower blood pressure
- Keep the heart healthy and improve elasticity in blood vessels
- Normalize the body’s anti-inflammatory response
- Slow down the signs of aging and help prevent Alzheimer’s disease
The Right Kind of Resveratrol
There are two different kinds of Resveratrol— "cis" and "trans" Resveratrol. Studies show that the Trans form is the key health-promoting ingredient. The best kind is natural, but, of course, you would need to drink an excessive amount of wine a day to achieve that. Trans-resveratrol is more biologically active and beneficial and is the form that has been the subject of the vast majority of research.
The Resveratrol in the Resveratrol Winetime bar comes from two key sources - Resvida and BioVin Advanced French Red Wine Extract. Both are trans-Resveratrol.
In developing the first bar to contain Resveratrol, ResVez has partnered with DSM Nutritionals, the world's leading nutritional ingredient supplier boasting $3 billion a year in sales. DSM, headquartered in the Netherlands, employs 23,000 people worldwide and has locations on five continents. ResVez has elected to use its breakthrough Resvida ingredient which is produced in state of the art facilities in Europe, complying with the strictest safety, health and environmental standards.
In fact, Resvida is the only known Resveratrol with a safety package, acknowledged FDA structure function claims and self-affirmed GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe). The primary benefits of Resvida are:
- Guaranteed high purity Resveratrol
- Patented production process
- Free from pesticides
- Scientific documentation
- Comprehensive safety package
DSM has invested extensively in a comprehensive program to demonstrate the safety of Resvida and commented: "Our research program shows that Resvida is safe, bioavailable and well tolerated by humans." The safety assessment conducted by the independent Burdock Group reported, "...it is concluded that the oral intake of DSM's trans-Resveratrol (Resvida) as a dietary supplement at levels up to 450 mg/day for a 60 kg (132 lb) person, is safe in accordance with the standard of reasonable expectation of no harm."
Unlike most other companies, who have no substantiation behind their Resveratrol, DSM has even committed to funding human clinical trials using Resvida. One study investigating endothelial (heart and blood vessels) function is being conducted by Professor Peter Howe at the University of South Australia, Auckland, Australia; the other, a study of gene expression in muscle, cholesterol, blood sugar levels and other markers of metabolic and cardiovascular health, is being performed by Dr. Sam Klein's group at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. The results of the Australian research are expected towards the end of 2009; the St. Louis results will be reported in 2010.
Resvida has also been selected by the U.S. Government's National Institutes of Health for an ongoing Resveratrol study in monkeys.
The Best of France
The other key source of Resveratrol in Winetime bar is BioVin Advanced, a unique red wine extract manufactured in France from premium red grapes. This exclusive extract, from grapes harvested in the famed Rhône valley, contains 5% red wine trans-Resveratrol and 30-35% red wine polyphenols, including anthocyanins and other flavanoids. The whole grape constituents in BioVin Advanced enhance the body’s antioxidant defenses to counteract the effects of free radicals.
The grapes from which Biovin is sourced are fermented in France into wine, which then undergoes filtration to remove any impurities, The final product is purely extracted and washed with grain alcohol before the alcohol is evaporated, resulting in a potent concentrate.
CyVex Nutrition, the U.S. company which imports the extract, has been providing ground-breaking and high quality ingredients since 1984. Company founder Gilbert Gluck is acknowledged as one of the pioneers in launching innovative branded nutraceuticals for products aimed toward addressing human health and wellness.
Each of its ingredients is guaranteed by its exclusive quality assurance system for safety and efficacy. This includes identity testing of incoming raw materials through FT-NIR, third party certification by independent laboratories for active ingredients, microbiology, heavy metals and even pesticide and solvent residue when applicable.
Note: In contrast, most competitive products in the marketplace use Resveratrol extracted from the roots and stalks of the knotweed plant (Polygonum cuspidatum) and originate from China, which is a low cost and low quality source.
Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Q. Is there any alcohol in the Resveratrol Winetime bar?
A. There is a miniscule amount of alcohol in the vanilla extract and the natural flavors. It is no more than you would find in other nutrition bars in the marketplace.
Q. The ingredients list shows that the bar contains "chocolate liquor." What is that?
A. All real chocolate comes from the cocoa bean, the fruit of a tropical tree, Theobroma cacao. To make chocolate, processors roast and shell the cocoa beans leaving only the centers, called nibs. These nibs are then pulverized or ground into a smooth liquid that’s called chocolate liquor—although it contains no alcohol. When the chocolate liquor cools, it forms solid blocks. Chocolate liquor is the basis for all things chocolate.
Q. How much Resveratrol is contained in each Winetime bar?
A. There are two different high-quality sources of Resveratrol and the exact amount of each is proprietary information. However, you can be assured that together they provide more Resveratrol than 50 glasses of red wine. In addition, there is a certain amount of Resveratrol derived from the chocolate content of the bar!
Q. Can I eat more than one bar a day?
A. Absolutely. Enjoy the Winetime bar as a meal replacement, as a snack, as dessert—or paired with your favorite red wine.
Q. Why is red wine the key source of Resveratrol? Why not white wine?
A. Red wine contains higher concentrations of Resveratrol than white wine because red wine is fermented together with the skins whereas the skins are removed from white wine varieties prior to fermentation. The compound is formed in the skin to combat disease, especially fungal attack.
