Dr. Mercola Purple Defense Resveratrol, 30 ct
Dr. Mercola Purple Defense Resveratrol
Resveratrol is a compound found in certain fruits and vegetables; particularly the seeds and skins of grapes used in making wine. Researchers believe that this compound appears to slow down the effects of aging and may actually increase the lifespan of human cells. This is one potent and powerful antioxidant! Resveratrol is found in blueberries and peanuts, but is most well-known as the antioxidant polyphenol that has had scientists telling us for years that a glass of red wine is good for our heart.
Resveratrol Benefits may include
- Protect your cellular DNA from free radical damage
- Support blood pressure levels already within the normal range
- Support your heart health and promote blood vessel elasticity
- Promote normal healthy blood lipids and circulation
- May boost your metabolic rate and help promote an ideal weight
- Protect against the spread of abnormal cell activity
Dr. Mercola's NEW Purple Defense formula now provides higher levels of resveratrol content and ORAC value... you now get 20% more resveratrol and double the ORAC value.
An All Natural Source of Resveratrol
Purple Defense contains 50 mg of Resveratrol per serving.
With an overall 3,500 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per capsule, Purple Defense capsules provide a powerful natural antioxidant blend.
The ORAC value for Purple Defense is achieved by using the most sophisticated and accurate equipment possible. The machine is a fluorescence microplate reader (Fluoroskan Ascent FL).
ORAC values can easily be inflated with any machine though. Using an ethanol solvent will artificially inflate the ORAC value. That's why each batch is testing using an acetone/water solvent. So you can rest assured that you're actually getting 3,500 in each dose.
Made in the USA.
30 capsules, each containing 50mg of resveratrol.
