Extract data
Origin: China
Extract of the roots of Polygonum Cuspidatum, standardized to a 50% concentration of trans-resveratrol.

Recommended amount per dose is 100-500 mg, or 1/5 a full size '00' capsule.

Plants belonging to the Polygonaceae family are recorded as being chief tonics for longevity and life extension. Part of this is believed to be due to the resveratrol content, which is a near legendary antioxidant found in grapes and red wine. Thanks to the power of alchemy, now one can harness the life bestowing properties of this compound in a purified form, avoiding the extra baggage that can sometimes accompany a glass of wine.

Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
