I seen it as a natural test booster and estrogen controller with other health benefits, anyone had luck with it or felt any noticeable difference?

I used to use it a lot in my 20s. I don't think it had any noticeable hormonal effects but I do feel it starved off some signs of aging some of my coworkers were showing. Sufficed to say, I had a pretty stressful job at that point.

it's one of the ingredients in sustain alpha...transdermal seems to be the way to go, not hard to find reviews on sustain alpha it's been around for many years and stood the test of time.

I have played around with it. I think it takes a hit because it has been so hyped up over the years - so it will fall short of expectations by a long shot. It is not very bioavailable, so that is a potential knock - but some studies suggest it does not need to be bioavailable in order to be effective - it may just be great for improving the gut microbiome or something along those lines and all of the health benefits are downstream of that. This, of course, would actually go against transdermal use - but nothing is very clear with it.

I've used it as bulk powder and in Dermacrine and some other topicals. Those products have served me well, so I'm not sure what to think exactly but it has potential.

resveratrol is a minor player in dermacrine, dhea and preg are the heavy hitters...to give transdermal resveratrol a true test I suggest sustain alpha, it is much more prominent....if you haven't tried sustain alpha before next time we do a logging opportunity put in a app-I will let @delsolrob know I want you to log it.

I think its an ingredient that has great potential but was so overhyped when it came out that people either had unrealistic expectations and were disappointed or they were turned off by the way it was marketed. But I do think its an awesome ingredient.

Resveratrol, unfortunately, has a very high affinity for Glucoruonidation and Sulfation - gut enzymes that turn the resveratrol into a more useless moiety.

Fortunately, there are other herbal ingredients with HIGHER affinity - that when taken together with Resveratrol increase its absorption and bioavailability immensely.

No, I won't tell you which yet....but it's kind of the solution to the Red Wine Paradox.

I have used a few brands resveratrol. the first brand was rev genetics, was trans res in some sort of nitrogen filled capsule and some other lecithin delivery system. expensive but effective. high quality res makes my low back stiff and joint pain in the knees. the second one I tried was PA's old brand Giant Nutrition(which he also sold mestanolone aka 17a methyl dht in that line a few months before the PH ban of 2004, also a very effective product.lol. PA's resveratrol supplement was 50% resveratrol and 50% emodin(emodin acts as a laxative. most of the resveratrol supplements at that time were derived from Japanese knotweed and emodin was a natural substance in the plant. These days they may have shifted on using different sources or are better with separation/extraction methods to get a high yield...third product was PA's resveratrol spray from his prototype nutrition line....overall I did not notice much from a "feel" standpoint with res..i also took micronized res from rev genetics...originally the thought was that res was directly an antioxidant and has some ER beta activity,,.new thoughts are that the substance is directly cytotoxic to your cells thus your body will ramp up its own antioxidant defense mechanisms in response..
