Resveratrol is an herb that can have some negative side effects, which is why it’s good to know the recommended dosage.
This herb is found on the skin of grapes, peanuts, chocolate, blueberries, raspberries and a few other herbs. As you can guess the skin of grapes is used to create red wine, which also has this substance. Basically it’s an antioxidant that’s prime job is to protect a plant from toxins and deadly bacteria.
The major health benefit of it is that the ingredients in resveratrol can active a certain gene called the SIRT1 gene in humans.
What this does is restrict calories thus reducing free radicals and prolonging life. In fact studies done on rats, yeast and other animals confirm that it can increase the life span of those living organisms by as much as 70%. So as you can see there are a lot of people that are excited about it.
Other benefits of resveratrol is that the fact that it can make cancerous cells put a gun to their head. Well they can’t actually put a gun to their head, but you know what I mean.
It can also be used to help with weight loss, increases someone’s energy level, preventing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and more.
Side effects of someone taking too much of this nutrient can include stomach cramps, diarrhea, headaches, not being able to fall sleep, bleeding, acne growth, and joint pain. This is why it’s good to know how much resveratrol someone should take and the recommended dosage.
It’ s important to know that some people’s system might just have a hard time digesting resveratrol and may experience negative side effects with low dosage.
To find out the best dosage for humans it’s good to start with the dosage of the animals that scientist did clinical studies on.
Rats that took over a thousand milligrams a day received the benefits of living longer in some clinical studies. Neverless it has been studied that humans that took 350 mg’s a day can receive the benefits of resveratrol and even as low as 10 to 20 mg’s a day of this herb.
It’s also good to know that that the larger the dose the more of a risk that there is going to be negative side effects. 10-20 mg’s is a good safe starting point for this supplement because keep in mind there are no concrete evidence that the benefits of this substance is really there for humans and nobody knows what really high doses can do.
Because someone would have to drink a dangerous amount of wine or consume way too much chocolate to receive the benefits of resveratrol in foods, many health professionals recommend taking a supplement to get the benefits this herb offers.
The problem with supplements is that they can be very confusing. Also believe it or not they can be very dangerous as well.
In fact supplement companies don’t even have to test to see if a product is safe before selling it. That is sort of scary isn’t it? Due to these reasons I looked all over the place for some type of guide to choosing a supplement and it was a very hard process getting good information. Lucky for you I created a guide on all the research I gathered.
