“Red wine contains around 10 mg of resveratrol per liter. In order to obtain 200 mg daily, you’d need to drink almost 30 bottles of wine a day.”
-Dr. John Carr
- Very potent antioxidant
- Contains 200mg of trans-resveratrol and 200mg of quercetin
- A Harvard study showed resveratrol reduced death of mice by 31 percent and prevented many side effects of weight gain
- To consume that amount of resveratrol, a human would have to drink 42 bottles of red wine!
- Activates the SirT1 gene, believed to slow aging of cells
One of the most effective ways to slow the rate of aging is a severe low calorie diet. It releases a longevity enzyme to help the body adapt, but few people can follow such a restrictive diet. Studies show that resveratrol may duplicate the effects of calorie restriction, thus improving longevity. A study from Harvard Medical School showed that resveratrol reduced the risk of death in mice by 31 percent and prevented many of the side effects of weight gain, including diabetes. To get the amount of resveratrol given to mice in the Harvard study, the average man would have to more wine daily than is compatible with life. However, one capsule of VeraCELL contains the same amount of resveratrol as 42 bottles of red wine!
VeraCELL contains 200 mg of trans-resveratrol in addition to 200mg of Quercetin, and this combination has been show to be neuroprotective and cardioprotective in clinical studies.

Both are also being researched for how they may effect cancer cells, including inducing apoptosis (cancer cell death) in addition to metastasis.
