Resveratrol red wine pills are the latest rage in anti-aging products, but where's the science?

When it comes to resveratrol dietary supplements, the coming rage in anti-aging products, it's akin to "Dodge City 1872," says Resveratrol News, a website for red wine pill users. Resveratrol makers are "shooting from the hip."

A host of new resveratrol supplement brands have arrived on the market in the past months. Their claims are often amazing. But where's the science? Where's the independent proof? To date, no human study has been published using resveratrol pills.

Manufacturers are cutting corners and producing misleading labels and exaggerated advertising claims in attempts to create the illusion their products are superior in quality, quantity or price.

Resveratrol News says manufacturers often use confusing names for the plant sources of their resveratrol, don't correctly label their products to indicate exactly how much resveratrol they contain, and take no precautions as lab researchers do to preserve the fragile resveratrol molecule which is degraded by exposure to light, oxygen and heat.

Most brands advertised on the internet widely quote Dr. David Sinclair, whose report in the September 11, 2003 issue of Nature Magazine, first heralded the prospect of resveratrol as a potential anti-aging pill. But resveratrol manufacturers conveniently overlook Dr. Sinclair's statements in Science Magazine and on PBS television, that he found most resveratrol pills to be inactive biologically. There is an obvious difference between research-grade resveratrol used in the laboratory and what is in pills in health shops.

To help sort it all out, Resveratrol News has posted a comparison chart of over 20 brands of resveratrol supplements and pleads with manufacturers to provide more accurate information and to eliminate their exaggerated ad claims. For more information visit
