New Study Touts Resveratrol…But There’s A Catch

and that is the arcane rules by which Big Pharma and the FDA play a game called: find a natural product developed since 1994 that does really fabulous things in the body; take that natural molecule and tweak it in some techno-bio way, thus creating a synthetic that can be patented; then petition the FDA to OUTLAW the natural sunstance….are we down the rabbit hole yet?

So the molecule in the spotlight is resveratrol, and it really is a fabulous anti-oxidant that is excellent for heart health and a lot of etc. It is usually sourced from Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum) and is a moderately priced nutritional supplement with next to no harmful side effects.

Here’s the article about the study, about Big Pharma getting interested, and more nefarious FDA shenanigans, and especially why you might want to not just take resveratrol, but also fight to keep it accessible over the counter.
