Where does trans - resveratrol come
Resveratrol (3,4,5 - trihydroxystilbene) is grouped into a
class of polyphenolic compounds better known as stilbenes. There are commonly two types available today - the
"trans" and "çis" variety. The more expensive and potent "trans" type is
derived from the Japanese Knotweed (polygonum cuspidatum). The "cis" type is extraced from food by-products
that also contain traces of this compound, albeit in a much less potent
Why are there two types of
There are two types of resveratrol that exist in nature,
and these are the "cis" and
"trans" configuration. Both compounds are
powerful and directly effect gene expression, but the "trans" type of this compound has been shown to be more bio active
within the body.
Resveratrol has been tested exstensively by science for a
number of years now, and after much investigation has been found to be with little side effects - though much
of the current research with human participants is yet to come out. As with any type of supplement the
interaction within the body is not entirely known, so it is best to exercise caution & if any unpleasant
symptoms present then be sure to visit your local health care
Currently there are 12 human clinical studies
underway with a number of them now reaching Phase 3 of testing without issue. Until these studies are
completed a number of questions remain unanswered - though much of the information required to make an
educated decision based on science & not speculation should be available in the public arena in the not
too distant future.
