Overview

Resveratrol is a polyphenol compound that is believed to have antioxidant properties. Plants typically produce resveratrol as a defense mechanism in response to stress, injury, UV radiation and fungal invasion.

In humans, research has shown that resveratrol may increase energy and muscle endurance.

How much you should have: Since resveratrol is still unproven in clinical studies, there is no FDA-recommended dosage.
