What is Piceatannol?
Piceatannol is a natural stilbene occurring in a number of plant species, and it has been shown to have beneficial effects on human health. The compound can seldom be consumed by humans, because it occurs mostly in non-food plants, or in non-edible organs. There are only a few plants reported to contain minute amounts of piceatannol. The scarcity of this compound impedes researchers from continuing to study its properties and health benefits.
Health Benefits of Piceatannol
Piceatannol has a very similar structure to the renowned resveratrol and, also, similar anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, piceatannol has much more potent biological activity and bioavailability than resveratrol. Like resveratrol, piceatannol has been studied for its anti-cancer properties and has been deemed the superior agent of the two.
It has recently been discovered that the Muscadine grapes, along with our Muscadine grape products, contain piceatannol.
Piceatannol and Heart Health:
When your heart is healthy, your whole body is going to work better because the blood is flowing properly and taking oxygen to all of your cells and taking toxins away from those same cells. Piceatannol is one great way to improve your heart health because it has been found to protect the heart against heart disease. It does this in several ways, one of which is acting as an anti-inflammatory. When your blood vessels are inflamed, it is more difficult for the blood to travel through them which can lead to arteries becoming blocked and a number of other serious problems that can be prevented or reduced by adding piceatannol to your daily regimen.
Piceatannol and Alzheimer’s Disease:
When a person has Alzheimer’s disease, part of the problem is that there is a buildup of plaque along the nerves and that the nerves then become damaged. Researchers think that piceatannol can help protect the nerves against this buildup and allow the nerves and brain to function normally. There still a need for further studies done to confirm these findings, but early studies are giving hope to people who have loved ones who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, as well as dementia and other conditions that affect the brain and nervous system.
Piceatannol and Allergies:
Allergies cause an inflammatory reaction in the body. Any inflammation found in the body has a negative impact on the body as a whole, and will lead to different symptoms depending on the area that is experiencing the inflammation.
Researchers say that piceatannol can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body that may be caused by allergies, which can help improve your overall health and well-being. Many people have allergies that they are not aware of because the effects on their body are minimal, so taking piceatannol will help fight that inflammation that you’re not even aware of.
Piceatannol and Anti-Aging:
Although there is evidence that indicates that piceatannol can act directly on your DNA to help improve your overall lifespan, that’s not the only way that piceatannol can help you look and feel younger for longer.
