Resvoxitrol fits the role of an antioxidant inducer. Rather than depend solely on the classical antioxidant approach, which relies upon the chemistry of redox reactions (vitamins C, E); the agents within Resvoxitrol work by inducing cellular antioxidant capacity primarily through upregulation of the Nrf2 and related pathways. Numerous chronic disease pathways can be modulated via these pathways. This product could be combined with Oxitrol; which relies more heavily on redox-focused antioxidants.
Resveratrol and pterostilbene belong to a class of compounds known as stilbenes. Stilbenes are naturally occurring compounds found in a variety of plants. They are produced when the plant is exposed to an environmental threat, such as viral or microbial, and protect the plants from such threats. Resveratrol is one of the most well-researched stilbenes and is found in red wines and grapes, while pterostilbene is found in berries such as blueberries and deerberries. Studies show resveratrol and pterostilbene have potent antioxidant properties as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits.
Broccoli seed extract contains a high amount of glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate that is a precursor to a specific isothiocyanate called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a potent antioxidant used in the body and also has detoxifying, anti-inflammatory and chemoprotective properties. The SGS broccoli seed extract used in Resvoxitrol contains the highest levels of glucoraphanin of any broccoli product on the market.
The pomegranate is a phytochemical-rich fruit that contains ellagic acid, punicalagins, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. Pomegranate has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The pomegranate extract used in Resvoxitrol was carefully selected for its high punicoside content and is an extract of the whole fruit. The whole fruit is squeezed to remove the juice and the extract is made from the remaining pulp, seeds and skin. This extract is standardized to contain no less than 40 percent punicosides.
Several in vitro studies show that resveratrol, quercetin and pterostilbene in combinations have a greater synergistic effect than when administered separately.
