What is Acetylated-Resveratrol ?
Acetyl (C2H3O) is a functional group in organic chemistry. It is a carbonyl joined to a methyl group with a single bond. When an organic molecule is acetylated, it increases it ability to cross the selectively permeable BBB (blood brain barrier).
Health Benefits of Acetylated-Resveratrol
Acetylated-resveratrol can offer the same health benefits of the resveratrol found naturally in red wine extract, but with better bioavailability.
Adding an acetyl group to the resveratrol molecule is said to increase the potency of the effects of this natural supplement. As an acetylated form, this compound is assimilated into the body much faster and is more stable.
In its natural phenolic form, resveratrol is molecularly unstable; especially when exposed to light, heat and/or oxygen. This instability results from activated hydroxyls which break down chemical bonds.
By acetylating resveratrol, its hydroxyls are made inactive. The hydroxylic deactivation of resveratrol results in acetylated-resveratrol, and helps the molecules to remain stable. Additionally, it increases the bioavailability of resveratrol, and causes it to be more biologically active.
After being absorbed, acetyl-resveratrol is converted to the natural phenolic form of resveratrol through processes of metabolism. Various clinical studies have shown acetyl-resveratrol to exhibit stronger medicinal effects than non-acetylated resveratrol.
