Checked the OP's link before the mod edited it. One thing that concerned me was on that very site they said:
"Resveratrol and postmenopausal women
Resveratrol has been reported to act as a phytooestrogen in some systems. It has been suggested that it has helped the effects of it Cardioprotective effects. At this time the oestrogenic effects have been subjects of debate and research is working to see if there is a firm connection for the cardioprotective effects."
I'd post the link to where this is from, but since the mod removed the original link, I'm going to opt not to unless told otherwise.
Regardless of it's "authenticity", I don't like that word "phytoestrogen"...
Then again, forslean was debated to increase estrogen too...and I respond well to forslean...so I'll keep an open mind.
There are ways to reduce the emodium content, but even at 1 to 3% many people will be uncomfortably "loose." Ten miligrams is too much emodium for some people. Until proven otherwise, I will assume this is a problem with all high-dose resveratrol products on the market. This information should be on the label
Anyone can get a Chinese 50% resveratrol extract for about $125 a kilo and pack it into capsules and put them in a bottle with a pretty label; what is critical is the emodium content (among other things.)
I read a while back that the metabolites of Quercetin may block the benefits of Resveratrol
Don't mean to beat my own drum here, but I probably know as much if not more on the subject of resveratrol than anyone around.
Given everything I know, I can only recommend Biotest. They are the ONLY company out there with near 100 percent pure trans resveratrol. It is expensive. This is because making and producing pure RSV isn't cheap.
Found one even cheaper. Country Life. They are a very reputable company. 100mg RSV, 60 caps, 14 bucks. Dam good deal. Note that product has grape seed extract, which improves RSV bioavailability and purity.
MOD EDIT: No linking
200mg total content
100mg of RSV
50mg grape seed extract
25mg grape skin
25mg pine bark
If thats the case, and I think it is, GREAT. thats 100mg pure RSV, with the other 100mg accounted for as added polyphenols which further enhance product.
But if that other 100mg is stuff like emodium and the like, well, not so good.
