There are several types of resveratrol, however only, Trans-Resveratrol is the one that is in bio active form; this means that it is the one readily available to make a difference on your skin (Morganna’s Express spot remover)…
In other words, it is able to fight against the accumula
tion of oxidative species harmful to cell survival
The powers of this polyphenol, derived from the seeds of grapes, are few but mighty:
This action gives resveratrol protective effects and anti-aging potential.
It helps protect the body and prevent premature skin aging.
Anti-inflammatory activity studies show that resveratrol can reduce inflammatory responses.
This natural anti-inflammatory property may therefore be good in fighting against chronic inflammation.
Remember, just by walking from our car to our house, there could be enough damage done by the sun to provoke this inflammation under your skin!
When, skin is deeply wrinkled, spotted, reddened, dehydrated, and weakened, the collagen and elastin fibers, constituting the extracellular matrix of the dermis, are disorganized and degraded, the skin tissues prone to inflammation.
In the skin, oxidation is a major phenomenon responsible for cell aging. It damages the skin cells both in the epidermis and the dermis and contributes to their degeneration. The antioxidant power of Resveratrol has been proven to be superior to that of vitamins C and E. A scientific study has shown that Resveratrol is 95% effective in preventing lipid peroxidation, compared to 65% for vitamin E and 37 % for vitamin C.
Fight against Free Radicals:
Resveratrol is also known to stimulate the proliferation of healthy cells and the synthesis of collagen by protecting the dermal matrix against toxic enzymes and improving the functioning of fibroblasts responsible for the production of collagen.
Antioxidants would therefore be precious allies to help the skin fight against free radicals produced in high concentration during oxidative stress. As their name suggests, antioxidants are inhibitors of oxidation and they will help remove excess free radicals from cells.
Resveratrol (trans-resveratrol) is indeed a polyphenol which is particularly active in all of our cells. It protects them from the destructive effects of free radicals. It also inhibits the oxidation processes (oxidative stress) that cause damage to our cell membranes.
In the early 1990s, the research scientist Serge Renaud was talked about in the United States by explaining the famous French Paradox. His studies tended to prove that the French were more than three times less likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease thanks to the high content of resveratrol in red wine. Since then, numerous studies on the benefits of this antioxidant have highlighted its protective action for the whole of our body.
