Thorne Research PolyResveratrol-SR 60 cap
Thorne Research PolyResveratrol-SR 60 vcapPoly-Resveratrol - SR contains pure resveratrol, along with synergistic plant extracts and a resveratrol metabolite that optimize the metabolism and utilization of this fascinating nutrient and enhance its numerous metabolic, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, and anti-aging properties.
Research on the ingredients in Poly-Resveratrol SR has demonstrated numerous anti-aging effects:
- Resveratrol: A flavonoid-like molecule found in grapes, mulberries, and other plants, resveratrol mimics the anti-aging effects of calorie restriction.* A significant decrease in the harmful effects of a high-fat, high-calorie diet was observed in mice, most likely due to increased fat metabolism from the up-regulation of the SIRT-1 enzyme, which acts as a cellular switch by both increasing the number of mitochondria and supporting their function. SIRT-1 also has a positive impact on blood glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and cell survival.*
- Pterostilbene: A naturally-occurring methylated metabolite of resveratrol, pterostilbene appears to be better absorbed than resveratrol and is not as easily broken down in the liver.* Animal and in vitro studies show pterostilbene has anti-aging effects similar to resveratrol, but it reaches higher levels in the blood and is longer lasting in the body.*
- Curcumin Phytosome, Green Tea Phytosome, and water-soluble Quercetin: Research shows quercetin slows the breakdown of resveratrol in the body, acts as a potent antioxidant, and is synergistic with the activities of resveratrol.* Green Tea Phytosome has a positive effect on fat metabolism, promotes optimal liver detoxification, and is highly absorbed.* Curcumin Phytosome is significantly better absorbed than a standardized curcumin extract, and studies show it supports the body's normal inflammatory response and demonstrates synergistic anti-aging activity with resveratrol.
