Resveratrol is a potent polyphenol found naturally in berries, grapes and peanuts. It has been shown to activate two key enzymes which are critical for healthy ageing. SIRT1 and NMNAT.
SIRT1 is linked to chemical reactions that power the cardiovascular system, metabolism, brain health and DNA stabilisation. In fact, SIRT1 is so important to longevity that scientists have hailed SIRT1 as a key factor in sustaining a long, healthy life.
Resveratrol is also thought to help activate a signalling pathway called nicotinamide-nucleotide adenylyltransferase (NMNAT). NMNAT helps to support optimal levels of NAD+, which is arguably the most important molecule when it comes to longevity.
