Resveratrol has several therapeutic effects, it is found in berries, grapes, raisins and red wine. It has been shown to mimic effects of caloric restriction, exert anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects, and affect the initiation and progression of many diseases through several mechanisms.

Resveratrol has also been found to inhibit the expression of vascular cell adhesion molecules and to improve the activity of vascular smooth muscle cells. Studies have shown that resveratrol inhibits platelet aggregation, which prevents blood clot formation and ultimately myocardial infarction and stroke.
