These days, it seems everyone is pursuing the secret to combating aging, in hopes of unlocking the fountain of youth. Fortunately, a potent antioxidant known as resveratrol—in conjunction with CBD—might provide a real-life answer to those in search of a longer, healthier life.

Often referred to as the “longevity molecule,” resveratrol is a plant compound commonly found in red wine, grapes, raw cocoa and dark berries such as lingonberries and blueberries. This remarkable compound has been the subject of a number of studies in recent years, with research largely supporting its powerful restorative benefits. Below are just a few demonstrated advantages of adding resveratrol to your routine:

LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE: Resveratrol may lower blood pressure by helping to reduce the pressure exerted on artery walls when the heart beats, as well as by helping to produce more nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to relax.

HEART PROTECTION: Resveratrol is thought to help reduce inflammation, lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and make it more difficult for clots to form that can lead to a heart attack.

DIABETES TREATMENT: Resveratrol may be helpful for individuals with diabetes and prediabetes by helping manage and regulate insulin levels as well as preventing fat storage.

ANTIAGING PROPERTIES: By offering antioxidant, anticarcinogenic and antitumor benefits, resveratrol is believed to protect against many age-related diseases and can activate certain genes that ward off the diseases of aging.

CANCER TREATMENT: By inhibiting cell growth and preventing cancerous cells from replicating and spreading, resveratrol might offer special benefits for those with cancer.

HEALTHY BRAIN FUNCTION: Research suggests that resveratrol can increase blood flow to the brain, helping promote healthy brain function and neuroprotective effects, which can combat cognitive problems including Alzheimer’s, dementia, and others.

By managing inflammation in the body, positively impacting hormone production, improving blood circulation, and preventing fat storage, resveratrol exhibits seemingly unlimited potential. Even better: it can be combined with cannabinoids—namely CBD—to deliver added benefits for consumers.

CBD and resveratrol are strikingly similar compounds in terms of their effects on the body. Scientific and anecdotal evidence have shown both CBD and resveratrol to alleviate inflammation, promote positive cognitive health, along with a host of other benefits. When used in synergy, these healing supplements can help consumers achieve optimal physical and mental health.

That being said, when taken orally, resveratrol, like CBD, is extensively metabolized in the gut before reaching the bloodstream, thereby limiting absorption. As a result, it is advised that consumers select products that bypass the digestive process to avoid degradation.

Fortunately, both CBD and resveratrol can be administered topically through products like the Evolve Formulas CBD pen, which not only rejuvenates the skin but also enters the bloodstream for widespread systemic relief. A match made in heaven, CBD and resveratrol might just be the wellness world’s next major breakthrough. After conducting personal research, consider elevating your self-care regimen with the addition of this dynamic duo to your product lineup, and experience its potential for revitalizing the body and mind.
