At Vera Roasting Company, we often talk about resveratrol's heart healthy properties. But did you know this powerful antioxidant has several other health benefits? Resveratrol naturally occurs in grapes, where it is produced to help protect their fragile skins from the sun and repel enemies like fungi and bugs.
Resveratrol may produce similar effects in humans. Resveratrol has preservative properties and is often used in skincare products to help prevent aging, protect the skin from UV radiation, and to reduce wrinkles. Resveratrol is not a substitute for sunscreen, but it can help improve or reverse some signs of sun damage.
In addition to protecting your skin and your heart, resveratrol may also help protect your brain. Resveratrol's anti-inflammatory properties may inhibit age-related cognitive decline. Resveratrol may also boost blood flow to the brain, increasing mental sharpness and acuity.
Resveratrol has been studied for decades, and scientists are continuing to yield new breakthroughs each year. We are closely following the research and will keep you updated with any new developments! Drink CoffVee daily to get the full benefits of resveratrol in your diet.
