Yeah, I reckon it would be a lot of grapes to get the effects from one tablet! :D

On a side note, this article may be of interest about resveratrol:
"Resveratrol, in its natural combination in whole grape, for health promotion and disease management"
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4553113/

I also found this one that talks about the health benefits of grapes:

Here's a list of the 10 best resveratrol foods...yay chocolate, haha! :P

Thank you for the research. There is a reason that the grape is wrapped in a skin. We may not understand it currently but the nutrients found in both the fruit and skin are probably synergistic.

Hey there Newage and everybody! I take aSquared Nutrition's resveratrol that's ordered from Amazon at a cost of $27.99 per bottle. It's 100% Pure Resveratrol - I take two 500mg capsules per day with 180 Capsules in each bottle so it's a 90 day supply. There are no unnecessary fillers, binders, or potentially harmful preservatives or GMOs. They use FDA registered and GMP compliant manufacturing facilities in the USA so I feel good about the quality and efficacy of this product. Hope that helps!

I’ve heard Dr Sinclair note that he takes 1g of resveratrol daily and one glass of wine contains 1mg. So you’d need 1000 glasses of wine daily to compare. I imagine the grape quantity would be quite large also.

FWIW most supplement resveratrol doesn’t come from grapes. It’s another plant that I can’t remember at the moment but it produces resveratrol much more cheaply.
yes, something root... something...

i'll take the pill :D
Taking:
Resveratrol 400mg since June 2019; 600mg since October 1
NMN Sublingual 250mg since june 2019 500mg since September 2019
NAD+ Nasal, appx 100mg per day since September 2019; 200mg per day beginning mid November

I don’t think taking grape for resveratrol is a good idea. Dr. Sinclair mentioned that grape is one of the food that spikes your blood glucose dramatically, which is bad for metabolic health, one should avoid having too much grape.

Actually the poor grape has received a bad reputation over the years as being to sweet for good health. In the research article published below it is noted that the grape has a mean glycemic index and glycemic load in the low range. It goes on to say that grapes may be beneficial for type 2 diabetics to lower hyperglycemia, and protect beta cells. Very interesting.

I don't think it hurts to get a lot of things in our food. Even if it is to supplement what we take in our pills. Funny though, that used to be the other way around (pills to supplement food).

I do keep an eye on sugar too, as i think fructose is just as bad as any other sugar, so i prefer to get my vitamins from veggies. For example i prefer to get my vitamin C from bell peppers than oranges, etc.

But red grapes are my one exception.

I reckon everything in moderation, with variety! The book I'm currently reading talks about eating the rainbow, and has this downloadable resource on the author's website to help you keep track of how well you are eating the rainbow; I don't see any grapes on it, but I reckon if you ate grapes in moderation in addition to other red fruits, it would be ok! :D

I've noticed he's also uploaded an "eat the alphabet" chart!
