The world of sport went crazy for it when it was proven, that resveratrol promotes intense fat burning, quick reduction of adipose tissue, extremely effectively supports the development of aerobic capacity, raises testosterone levels and lowers cortisol levels (cortisol is a hormone that breaks down muscle proteins).

Grapes contain the most resveratrol, mainly their peel. That's why, red wines, obtained by fermenting the juice with the peel of the fruit, they contain more resveratrol, than white wines, because in the production of white and rosé wines, the peel of the fruit is removed in advance.

For these reasons, resveratrol has been assigned the role of the culprit the French paradox, that is, the low incidence of the French and the Mediterranean inhabitants of cardiovascular diseases, despite the high consumption of animal fats and cholesterol - nutrients with strong pro-atherosclerotic properties.
