Resveratrol is a substance that is naturally produced by various plants, such as grapevines, blackberries and cocoa, for protective purposes against pathogens such as bacteria or fungi. It is a non-flavonoid phenol. Resveratrol has several biological activities: it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it is protective for blood vessels and is able to stimulate a series of processes involved in cell cycle regulation and DNA repair. Some studies also show that people who follow a diet rich in resveratrol would be less exposed to the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and cancer. In particular, its antioxidant capacity would contribute to the protection of cells from damage caused by free radicals and thanks to this property it would help fight against skin aging.
