I just saw a new study that shows why women especially love how resveratrol makes them feel. It may combat the symptoms of menopause as effectively as hormone replacement drugs. And it does it without the cancer and other risks.
This is a remarkable discovery. It gives you one more weapon to combat the hot flashes, night sweats, and worse that come with “the change.”
The study, published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, found that resveratrol mimics the benefits of estrogen. In other words, it fakes out the body into thinking it has the estrogen levels of your youth.
Plus, the study showed it helps keep cells healthy. And when cells function properly, there’s less chance that cancer will form.
The study’s authors concluded, “Resveratrol might be the most promising candidate for HRT and chemoprevention of breast cancer due to its estrogenic activity and high antitumor activity.”
You can get resveratrol from certain foods – red wine, red grapes, cranberries, blueberries, and peanuts. But you’d have to eat a lot of these foods to get the equivalent of 100 mg. So a supplement is your best bet.
I recommend all my patients – men and women – take 100 mg of resveratrol daily. It’s an antioxidant, anti-aging powerhouse.
It’s safe and natural. You can take it any time of day, with or without food.

[Editor’s Comments: Another great reason to add a glass of red wine to your daily ritual!
But if you don’t drink, don’t like red wine or just want to add some “extra” protection with a nutritional supplement, the best resveratrol product I’ve found on the market is Purple Defense by Dr. Joseph Mercola.

My wife and I love red wine, but we’ve also been trying to reduce our daily caloric intake in order to drop a few pounds. Purple defense is a great addition to your supplement program if you’re looking to protect yourself from free radical damage and increse your intake of resveratrol, polyphenols and antioxidents.]
