Blame it on the US election hype, but I’ve been thinking about free radicals and before you even ask, they are not a political movement!

Free radicals are a world away from politics, but they do share a few common characteristics with some of the people we see in politics: free radicals have the potential to do harm, they don’t like to negotiate and they have the ability to take human cells as hostages.

Free radicals are not nice.  They are the nasty, unstable atoms that inhibit our bodies and cause havoc to our health in the form of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson disease, cancers and ageing disorders.  What most people don’t know about free radicals is that they are a natural occurrence in the human body – mostly caused by exposure to pollution, excessive sunlight and fat burning which can exacerbate the production and spread of free radicals throughout the body.

The good news is, we know how to keep these radicals in check.  Over the years, numerous studies have been conducted to understand free radicals and their impact on disease. It has become increasingly clear to researchers that we are able to manage the behaviour of free radicals in the human body with antioxidants, which have the ability to neutralise free radicals and stop their destructive game plan; preventing them from further damaging our body.[1]

Fresh fruits and vegetables contain an abundance readily digested antioxidants; especially darker coloured fruits like blueberries, mulberries and red grapes; which can, be used to make red wine. We’ve all heard that wine is an excellent source of antioxidants, but how many of us have enjoyed the antioxidant benefits of Resveratrol?

Chances are, if you’ve sipped on nice glass of red; then, you’ve enjoyed the antioxidant benefits of Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, found on the skin of red grapes.

It is widely believed that the all-natural, plant derived Resveratrol developed its antioxidant powers on the grape vine, where it protected the grape plant from disease.  In humans, Resveratrol may act in a similar manner and protect against free radicals in the body. 

The Resveratrol sourced from red grapes and Japanese knotweed provide the two most potent, naturally occurring forms of Resveratrol and are believed to be effective in acting as a preventative, while also supporting mental and physical recovery.
