What conditions or problems is Resveratrol used for ?

Resveratrol helps lower cholesterol, and is as much as 10 to 20 times more potent than vitamin E in protecting against LDL oxidation, a process that has been linked to the development of cardiovascular disease. Resveratrol may also discourage tumor growth by blocking the action of Cox-2, an enzyme that researchers believe contributes to the development of colon cancer.

Additional studies suggest that resveratrol may be useful in both preventing and treating other types of cancer as well, including breast cancer. Finally, Resveratrol may help decrease signs of aging in the skin by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body.
