Resveratrol is a naturally occurring compound found in certain plants, including grapes, berries, and peanuts. It belongs to a class of plant compounds called polyphenols and is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
In protein powders, resveratrol is sometimes added as an ingredient due to its potential health benefits, including improving heart health, reducing inflammation, and promoting healthy aging. It may also help improve exercise performance and reduce muscle damage caused by intense physical activity.
While resveratrol is generally considered safe when consumed in moderate amounts from food sources, there is limited research on the safety and effectiveness of resveratrol supplements.
