Question: How much resveratrol is in wine? Is it enough to have a benefit?
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.
