Evidence

DISCLAIMER: These uses have been tested in humans or animals. Safety and effectiveness have not always been proven. Some of these conditions are potentially serious, and should be evaluated by a qualified healthcare provider.

Cancer: The effects of resveratrol cannot be adequately assessed from trials using foods, wine, or combination products containing resveratrol and other substances. Well- designed clinical trials of resveratrol alone are needed before a recommendation can be made in regards to cancer prevention and/ or treatment.
Grade: C

Cardiovascular disease: The effects of resveratrol cannot be adequately assessed from trials using foods, wine, or combination products containing resveratrol and other substances. Well- designed clinical trials of resveratrol alone are needed before a recommendation can be made.

Safety

DISCLAIMER: Many complementary techniques are practiced by healthcare professionals with formal training, in accordance with the standards of national organizations. However, this is not universally the case, and adverse effects are possible. Due to limited research, in some cases only limited safety information is available.

Allergies

Avoid in individuals with a known allergy/ hypersensitivity to resveratrol, grapes, red wine, or red wine polyphenols.

Allergic contact dermatitis from pentylene glycol in an emollient cream, with possible co- sensitization to resveratrol has been reported.

Side Effects and Warnings

Limited data in humans reveals that resveratrol seems quite safe. It is usually found as a component in food and beverages.

There is limited long- term information regarding adverse effects associated with resveratrol supplements alone. The American Heart Association recommends limited consumption. Consumption of large quantities of red wine as a source of resveratrol is considered unsafe due to the alcohol content. Consuming large amounts of alcohol increases the risk of alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide, and accidents. Drinking large quantities of red wine may also have adverse effects on the liver. Preliminary evidence suggests that resveratrol may weakly inhibit the way that the liver breaks down certain drugs, herbs, and supplements (inhibits multiple cytochrome P450 enzymes). Avoid red wine consumption in patients with a history of alcoholism.

Use cautiously in patients on anticoagulant/ antiplatelet (blood thinning) agents due to the potential for increased risk of bleeding.

Patients on blood pressure medications should take high amounts of resveratrol with caution.

Use cautiously in patients taking digoxin or digoxin- like drugs. Resveratrol may interact with these agents.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, red wine consumption is not recommended in pregnant women, as alcohol may affect the fetus and can lead to life- threatening damage.
