Resvoxitrol fits the role of an antioxidant inducer. Rather than depend solely on the classical antioxidant approach, which relies upon the chemistry of redox reactions (vitamins C, E); the phytonutrient blend within Resvoxitrol works by inducing cellular antioxidant capacity primarily through up-regulation of the Nrf2 pathway, the primary cellular defense against oxidative stress. Numerous intracellular health pathways can be modulated via Nrf2.
Resveratrol and Pterostilbene
Resveratrol and pterostilbene belong to a class of compounds known as stilbenes. Stilbenes are naturally occurring compounds found in a variety of plants. They are produced to protect the plant when exposed to an environmental challenge. Resveratrol is a well-researched stilbenes found in red wines and grapes, while pterostilbene is found in berries such as blueberries and deerberries. Studies show resveratrol and pterostilbene have potent antioxidant properties and other health benefits.
Broccoli Seed (SGS)
Broccoli seed extract contains a high amount of glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate that is a precursor to a specific isothiocyanate called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a potent antioxidant and supports normal detoxification.
The pomegranate is a phytochemical-rich fruit that contains ellagic acid, punicalagins, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. Pomegranate has strong antioxidant properties. The pomegranate extract used in Resvoxitrol was carefully selected for its punicoside content and is an extract of the whole fruit. The whole fruit is squeezed to remove the juice and the extract is made from the remaining pulp, seeds and skin. This extract is standardized to contain no less than 40-percent punicosides.
Several in vitro studies show that resveratrol, quercetin and pterostilbene in combinations have a synergistic benefits.
