Resveratrol in Red Wine -- red wine pouring from bottle into glass

Answer:

As discussed in the Resveratrol Supplements Review, the amount of trans-resveratrol (the most researched form of resveratrol) in wines is typically just a small fraction of the amount provided by most supplements and used in clinical studies. Therefore, the effects seen with resveratrol would not be expected with wine consumption.

On the other hand, there are cardiovascular benefits associated with moderate alcohol consumption that have not been shown with resveratrol supplementation. For more information about resveratrol (including amounts in various wines) and our tests of popular products, see the Resveratrol Supplements Review >>

I understand that you can get as much benefit from Welch's Grape juice as from wine.
Because in making the grape juice Welch's uses the whole grape skin, pulp, & seeds just like they do in making wine

Hi Linda - Yes, as discussed in the Resveratrol Review, purple grape juice also contains resveratrol: https://www.consumerlab.com/reviews/resveratrol-review/resveratrol-red-wine/
