My husband and I take 250mg Resveratrol mfg by Puritans Pride, a less costly supplier. I, being overweight, lost 10.5 lbs first month and we have a noticable overall better mental sharpness and energy level. It has helped my blood pressure. As I progress I am losing a lb. or so a month without diet, although I don't take it for weight loss it is helping. I find it to be beneficial, along with other nutritional methods we take. I have recommended it to friends as an addition to other supplements, in moderation. Most importantly, my husband has cancer and recently had surgery for bladder tumors that after 1 month (on 500mg Resveratrol)the doctor states that tumors had become smaller and less agressive, although they were removed anyway at surgery. Resveratrol has many health related benefits and we will continue taking it.
I am 57 and started using Country Life Resveratrol about 5 monts ago. I take (4)200 mg (each containing 100 mg of Trans-Resveratrol for a total of 400 mg/daily). I started taking it for general health benefits. I have had no side-affects other than weight loss, increased energy levels. and less miagraines! Without dieting or exercise I have lost 25 lbs and have now stabalized at my optimum weight not seen in years. I have even tried to gain weight (as a test) by eating high fat, carbs, sugar etc at a local casino's buffet 2-3x week and my weight did not fluctuate at all! I don't advocate an unhealthy diet but it was a fun month long experiment. In addition I have had chronic, severe migraine headaches for over 15 years having at least 1-2 week requiring perscription meds. I now have only about 1 per month! From what I have read you need at least 350 mg/daily for the benefits to kick in. Make certain that you take that as Trans-Resveratrol. Since a typical 200 mg cap may ony contain 100 mg of Trans-Resveratrol 4-5 are needed daily. I take 200/mg in the morning and 200/mg before bed since the half-life in the body is said to be 8-12 hrs. This will maintain Resveratrol levels through out the day. Next week I will have my 1st blood tests for sugars, cholesterol etc since beginning the regiment and am anxious to see if there has been a change. I was borderline on both before beginning Resveratrol. I hope the long-term benefits are as outstanding. I realize that everyones matabolism is different so doseage, benefits and side-affects may vary as well. All I can say is that it works for me. I buy Country Life Plus 120 Vcaps online through IHERB as they have the best price @ only $17.50 per 120 cap bottle. Plus orders over $40 ship free but under $40 is only $3.40 for thr entire order! One bottle @ 4 per day will last a month. That is only $0.48/daily! All I can say is this workd for me and I am now an advocate. I hope this info has been helpful! Cheers & Good Health! Jerry
Had much knee pain and was taking osteobyflex and pain medication and also had an injection in my knee but still has pain. After I started taking the Resveratrol, I ran out of the Osteobyflex and noticed that I was fine. I have been taking Resveratrol for close to three years and am doing fine. Take Resverage 100 mg.
I feel better now than I did before I started using Resveratrol,3&1/2 years ago! I'm age 71,and will continue to use 500mg of Resveratrol a day,give it a try.
I consider that 200mg per day is more effective.
