FAQs about Resvinatrol, Resveratrol and antioxidants
What is Resvinatrol Complete™?
NFI Consumer Products launches a new resveratrol product, Resvinatrol Complete™ to address antioxidant health benefits. What makes Resvinatrol Complete™ so good is the unique combination of antioxidants that support different bodily processes including heart and immune system functioning.
How does it work?
Resvinatrol Complete™ is a powerful antioxidant formula that provides defense against free radical damage. We are constantly being attacked by free radicals caused from pollution, smoking, sunlight, foods, chlorinated water, and more. Free radicals are simply atoms or molecules that have a missing pair of electrons. These atoms and molecules combine with oxygen to form a highly reactive molecule that can bind directly to the cell. Free radicals cause a chain reaction and attack cellular components such as the cell membrane or even the DNA inside the cell. When this happens cells begin to function poorly or even die. Many different health problems may result from free radical damage. To combat free radical damage, the body has an internal defense mechanism that uses naturally occurring phenolic compounds like resveratrol, ellagic acid, quercetin, and proanthocyanidins to neutralize free radicals before they can disrupt cellular structure.
What are antioxidants?
The National Institutes of Health has compiled a large list of foods that contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are phytochemicals found in plants that act as a defense mechanism for the plant by neutralizing attacks by free radicals, viruses, fungi, and other organisms. To help show us the power of these foods to absorb free radicals, scientists developed a system that assigns values or the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity – ORAC to each of the foods according to how powerful each food is at eliminating free radicals.

To help understand this chart, the ORAC value represented by the number in the column next to the corresponding food means the higher the value the more free radicals that food can neutralize. Many vitamins and minerals can also act as antioxidants. Taking in large doses though, can lead to serious complications without a doctor’s supervision. The best way to increase your antioxidant levels is to use supplements that contain naturally occurring antioxidants and eat more berries rich in antioxidants.
What is a daily requirement I can use as a gauge to make sure I am eating enough berries and fruit?
The average person needs about 5558 ORAC units per day from food or supplements they consume. It would take roughly 83 grams of cherries, 75 grams of red grapes, 53 grams of pomegranates or just 8 grams of muscadine seeds to reach our daily requirement. 80% – 90% of people in the world do not consume even half of the daily required ORAC. As we age, side affects from free radical damage begins to manifest in the form of aches, pains, lost energy, arthritis, strokes, hardening of the arteries, and other maladies. It should be noted that by age 40, our antioxidant level is at 50% when compared to our youth.
How do I approximate the ORAC value?
Fruits such as strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries are exceptional food choices that contain a high ORAC value. To put it in perspective, muscadine seeds contain a tenfold antioxidant capacity increase over red grapes. It takes about 75 grams of red grapes to achieve the daily ORAC needs whereas the same requirement can be achieved by consuming 8 grams of muscadine seeds.
What is resveratrol?
Some scientists say resveratrol, one of red wine’s chief antioxidants, is “the Fountain of Youth.” Resveratrol is being researched extensively by the medical community. Resveratrol is thought to be the reason why French people who consume large quantities of fat in their diet are relatively unaffected by the diseases normally associated with the diet. The difference between them and other fat loving cultures is that they also consume red wine with their meals.
What are muscadine grapes?
Muscadines are a variety of grapes that grow naturally throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. There are several varieties including the scuppernong which is a greenish, or bronze, variety of muscadine. All varieties of muscadines have tough skins and range in color from bronzy green to very dark purple. Muscadines don’t grow in tight bunches like grapes, but in clusters of 4 or more fruits. The abundant juice is so sweet, with a kind of musky, fruity flavor. Mother Vineyard in Roanoke Island is home to the oldest known grapevine in the United States. This four-hundred year old Scuppernong mother vine has a trunk two feet thick and once stretched one-half an acre.
Why so many precautionary packaging steps with Resvinatrol Complete™?
Resveratrol, like all antioxidants, absorbs oxygen. Exposure to the open air means that resveratrol will bond to oxygen very quickly and become inactive. In order to ensure this does not happen to the resveratrol in Resvinatrol Complete™, we take precautionary packaging steps to prevent oxidation:
- We use an unique air tight capsule to keep oxygen out.
- We package Resvinatrol Complete™ in a closed nitrogen environment to protect from oxygen exposure.
- We use an airtight seal for each capsule in the blister card.
Who should take Resvinatrol Complete™?
As we age, the levels of antioxidants found in our bodies begins to decrease. Significant drops occur in our 30s and 40s for most people. Since oxidation is the reason for so many different attacks on our bodies, having significant level of antioxidants helps to clean up free radicals that attack our cells.
What is Quercetin?
Quercetin belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids that are largely responsible for the colors of many fruits, flowers, and vegetables. Flavonoids, such as quercetin, provide many health-promoting benefits. Quercetin also works as an antioxidant by scavenging damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Antioxidants such as quercetin can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Adding quercetin to Resvinatrol Complete™ is necessary because quercetin can saturate and bind to the same compounds which conjugate with resveratrol thus allowing resveratrol an extended life. Two published studies now have found that resveratrol rapidly forms conjugates. Quercetin is believed to inhibit this conjugation, and quercetin also helps to activate the same longevity gene that resveratrol does, albeit less potently.
What is Ellagic Acid?
The three important sources of ellagic acid found in Resvinatrol Complete™ include muscadines, pomegranate extract, and raspberry extract. Ellagic acid serves a number of possible functions in these plants, regulating plant growth and seed germination, and protecting them from microbial infections. Ellagic acid also protects plants from cancer-inducing chemicals, heavy metal poisoning, and predation by insects and insect larvae. Since the early 1990s, researchers have been discovering that ellagic acid offers health benefits to humans as well. Ellagic acid is an important antioxidant due to its link to chemoprevention. A number of double blind studies of humans are underway to determine the effect of long-term daily consumption of concentrated raspberry extract.
