Resveratrol (Pure) Capsules
Resveratrol is a compound found in red grapes, berries and plants. It use is mainly to protect plants from rapidly developing mold. It also shields plants against UV radiation and the drying effect of drought, to some degree. In addition, Resveratrol also functions as an antioxidant.
The most popular Resveratrol supplements that can be bought today are usually using Resveratrol derived from Japanese Knotweed. This represents one of the best original sources for extraction, since it contains the substance in such high amounts.
Serving Size & Timing
It is suggested that Resveratrol be taken in servings of 1 capsule daily. It is recommended that it be taken with meals in order to increase the body's absorption. It is also best to take it with other grape extracts or with raw grapes, as this makes the effects of Resveratrol much more pronounced.

RESVERATROL SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, this supplement is considered safe. However, there have been rare reports of negative side effects. These include stomach pains, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite and general numbness in the limbs. Such symptoms usually occur only in the less refined version of Resveratrol, which contains Emodin, a natural laxative.
Women who are pregnant or nursing are cautioned from taking this supplement as well as anyone that may have a serious condition that they have been diagnosed with. If you have been diagnosed with Hepatitis C or are taking any type of medication used to combat viral infection, you should not use this supplement. Always speak with a doctor before taking this supplement for the first time. There are certain medications that Resveratrol may negatively interact with.
This is a capsuled product.
The product seems effective, however, it is much too powerful for my stomach. It creates an overpowering acidic environment, but my husband seems to tolerate it just fine. So, I guess it depends on your system. *

Effects: My sole interest in resveratrol supplementation is its suggested properties as an estrogen antagonist. (Much of the research related to this product pertains to anti-aging, cancer prophylaxis, and other effects that I am not focused on.) After taking it for a week I was unable to observe any perceptible change in my physiology. That is not to say that it doesn’t work or isn’t having an effect, just that I can’t perceive anything. Not surprising. Good chance the only way to determine whether the resveratrol is indeed impacting my estrogen levels would be blood work, and that is not going to happen.
Form Factor: The capsules are a fairly standard size, about an inch long, very easy to swallow unless you have unique “issues” with swallowing pills.
Packaging: I have ordered capsules from various supplement sites before, and they always come in a bottle. Sometimes glass, sometimes plastic, but always a bottle. So I was surprised to receive a relatively flat envelope via USPS. It turns out the capsules come in the (exact?) same kind of pouch that the powders come in, presumably to reduce costs. It’s not as convenient for opening and closing, but also not terribly inconvenient. Seals fine and haven’t had any problems with pills flying every which way on accident. I would like to see the label detail how much trans-resveratrol, cis-resveratrol, and emodin are in the final product.
Shipping: The order was shipped via USPS (rather than FedEx as my first order was) and took two days longer to arrive thanks to the efficiency of government enterprise. My assumption is that BulkSupplements chose the shipping option for cost considerations (this item was the only item in the order). Too bad patience is not my strong suit.
