Abstract

Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in many products commonly consumed in the American diet. The reported benefits of resveratrol are broad and include antiaging effects, antioxidant effects, anticancer effects, neuroprotective effects, and an array of cardiovascular benefits such as improved cholesterol profiles, reduced atherosclerosis, improved glucose homeostasis, decreased blood pressure, and reduced ischemia- reperfusion injury. The current article discusses the literature relating the dosing, safety, and effectiveness of resveratrol for extended life span and improved cardiovascular health. Additionally, recommendations for use in clinical practice are discussed.
