How RESVERATROL can be useful to pets:
Promotes healthy microbiome: Resveratrol is a type of phytoalexin, which inhibits the growth of pathogens, including fungi and bacteria. These fungi and bacteria could cause infections, or illness if not addressed. It has also been shown to have anti-viral activity, inhibiting virus replication, which again can cause serious health problems.
Exhibits anticarcinogenic activity: Resveratrol is viewed as a potential candidate for prevention and treatment of several types of cancer, as several studies have shown that it is able to inhibit all carcinogenesis stages (initiation, promotion, progression, etc.). The same studies have also shown evidence that it acts not only as a chemo-preventative agent, but also chemo-therapeutic.
Anti-inflammatory: Resveratrol, and its active form, protect the body’s cells from damage. It does this through providing a protective lining for your blood vessels and reducing vascular tension throughout the body, including in the brain. This makes it a good remedy for inflammation of the skin and even arthritis.
Anti-oxidant properties: As the body processes food and reacts to it’s environment, cells produce waste, including free radicals, which can cause damage to those cells. The anti-oxidant nature of resveratrol can help slow or prevent damage to cells caused by these free radicals.
Cardio- and neuro-protective: The same properties that provide protection for the blood vessels also help prevent and manage cardiovascular diseases. The combined effects also benefit the nervous system.
