Evolva to showcase resveratrol at VitaFoods Europe next week

3 May 2016 – Evolva will be at the upcoming VitaFoods Europe conference at the Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland 10-12 May exhibiting one of its lead functional ingredients, resveratrol. Visit Stand N93 at Vitafoods (#VFE16) to find out more about the healthy-ageing potential of resveratrol. Samples on hand will include resveratrol formulated in capsules, gums, and chocolate.

Resveratrol is the functional ingredient in red wine that you’ve been hearing about (see also res.evolva.com). It is a natural plant ingredient that belongs to the family of polyphenols. Many of the beneficial effects of resveratrol (such as the way it mimics the effects of a calorie-restricted diet) are thought to be mediated via its induction of “survival” genes. Resveratol also directly inhibits certain pro-inflammatory pathways and is an antioxidant.

Resveratrol has been widely studied, with some 8,000 papers published to date. Whilst it is perhaps most famous for driving significant extensions in lifespan in animals, such effects have never been shown in humans. However, many studies in humans have shown positive effects on a wide variety of age-related health indications.
