Resvera-Gold™ is a combination of herbal extracts including Reservavine (a resveratrol-containing grape vine extract), turmeric (standardized to 95% tetrahydrocurcuminoids), quercetin, green tea and boswellia. Health Functions:
Resvera-Gold™ may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support the healthy functioning of joints.
The cause of discomfort, especially in the joints, can be linked to the degradation of arachidonic acid to certain leukotrienes and prostaglandins via the cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. Many of these eicosanoids are potential mediators of inflammation. Modern science has found that by inhibiting the enzymatic activity of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase, the discomfort experienced with aging joints can be reduced. Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) have been used extensively to support the joints during the normal aging process, but are often associated with side effects including gastrointestinal disorders and liver damage.Resveratrol:
The use of red wine for health has been well documented. Polyphenols are a class of compounds thought to be responsible for some of wine's beneficial properties and can be found throughout the plant itself, not exclusively in the fruit itself. Resveratrol is a non alcoholic polyphenolic constituent of red wine that has been studied extensively, with results that show it to be effective for a variety of health related problems, including the regulation of normal inflammatory processes. Recent studies have demonstrated that resveratrol can modify normal inflammatory responses in human and animal cells by way of inhibition of the cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. In addition to the inhibition of these pathways, resveratrol was also found to induce significant inhibition of the adhesion of certain inflammatory cells, thus giving way to the assertion that it plays a major role in joint health. Resvera-Gold™ contains a unique form of resveratrol, derived from grapevines, thus giving maximum benefit and absorption.Turmeric:
Studies have shown that curcumin, a naturally occurring biologically active group of compounds from Curcuma longa (Turmeric), can function as efficient antioxidants and can help regulate the body's normal response to inflammatory processes. Unfortunately, curcumin has been shown to have poor water solubility, thus making it less biologically effective. This in turn leads to a greater amount needed for maximum benefits to occur. However, recent studies have shown that tetrahydrocurcuminoids, (derivatives isolated from curcumin), appear to have greater bioavailability than the regular plant constituents, thus meaning that a smaller amount is needed to achieve greater absorption. The standardized turmeric used in this product includes these valuable tetrahydrocurcuminoids, which allows beneficial and maximum support to occur.Quercetin:
Bioflavonoids belong to a class of water soluble plant pigments. In recent studies, the use of bioflavonoids have been shown to help support the body's normal inflammatory processes. One such bioflavonoid that has been researched extensively for its beneficial properties is quercetin. Derived from various plant sources, including citrus fruits and eucalyptus, bioflavonoids assist in keeping joints and collagen in a healthy condition. Inhibiting both cyclooxygenase and leukotrienes, bioflavonoids can assist the body in supporting joint and connective tissue health. Green Tea:
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) has been used for many centuries as a popular beverage worldwide. The polyphenols contained in tea, often referred to as catechins, appear to provide the primary health promoting benefits associated with green tea. One such catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has many antioxidant properties, in addition to supporting the body's normal response to inflammatory processes as well. Tea catechins also act as antimicrobial agents and as antioxidants. Boswellia: Preparations of the Boswellia plant have been used in traditional Indian medicine for joint health for hundreds of years. It is derived from the gum resin of the Indian frankincense plant. Studies have shown it to be supportive of both lung and liver health. Its usefulness is thought to be due to its ability to help support the body's normal inflammatory processes. Research shows that it appears to inhibit the lipoxygenase pathway, thus making it valuable tool in joint health. Ingredients:
