• Supports mood

      • Supports antioxidant defenses

      • Supports cognitive function


Viteatrol® 20 is a grapevine shoot extract that contains resveratrol monomers and oligomers.


Among the most important functions of resveratrol are calorie restriction mimetic (supporting healthy aging), and metabolic, cardiovascular, immune, and cognitive support.


Researchers have studied thousands of resveratrol derivatives in pre-clinical and clinical trials.


There are a number of resveratrol derivatives that are being studied, some of which might have structure and function advantages over trans-resveratrol that make them more potent for certain functions and tend to be complementary to each other.


Essentially, the grape plant's resveratrol derivatives are complementary to each other. Research has shown that Vineatrol® is a more potent sirtuin 1 (Sirt-1) activator than resveratrol dimers and that it is a more potent antioxidant than resveratrol alone.


However, what exactly are monomers and oligomers of resveratrol? Resveratrol monomers are molecules that can bond to other identical molecules, so trans-resveratrol is an example of a resveratrol monomer.


Trans-ε-viniferin is a resveratrol dimer, which is two identical resveratrol molecules bonded together into a monomer: Imagine it as two resveratrol molecules.

As many as eight resveratrol molecules can couple together in the resveratrol oligomer family.


Vineatrol®20 has the advantage of standardized content that ensures that at least 20% of these resveratrols are present.
