Resveratrol Side Effects
There are now many people who have discovered and experienced all the real benefits of taking resveratrol regularly and it is really reassuring to know that there is little or no known side effects of resveratrol. Whether you take it naturally by drinking red wine, or as a antioxidant supplement in the form of a red wine pill, there are virtually no resveratrol side effects to worry about.
However one of the more common concerns regarding resveratrol side effects is that Resveratrol contains small amounts of estrogen related properties. If you have estrogen sensitivities and plan to take resveratrol supplements,there could be mild health risks for you and so you should consult with your doctor before use.
If you are taking blood thinning medication, you should also check with your doctor before taking this supplement as one of the other side effects of resveratrol involve its blood thinning properties.
There currently is a huge amount of exciting research going on in regards to the many health benefits of resveratrol, but in addition to that the scientists are also conducting a lot of research into its potential risks and side effects as well.
The estrogen and blood thinning side effects of resveratrol have been the main focus in the medical research regarding this antioxidant. These two side effects so far are the only ones that might pose any kind of health risk for people taking resveratrol. Any other side effects that individual people may have reported might not be specifically caused by resveratrol, and so further studies will be required to prove this or otherwise.
Those of you who want to add the benefits of resveratrol to your life can do so by drinking red wine. However you do need to drink a fair bit of it and so I’m sure you will suffer the occasional adverse reaction to the alcohol, which I’m sure is well known to most of us and can include terrible headaches (hangover), nausea, vomiting and nasal congestion. So if you decide to drink red wine to get the resveratrol health benefits, please be sensible and aware that any side effects are going to be due to your intolerance to alcohol than that of the antioxidant itself.
You can enjoy all the health benefits of red wine without the alcohol effect by taking a red wine pill or a resveratrol antioxidant supplement. This way you will enjoy the all benefits of resveratrol, but won’t suffer the negative side effects of too much alcohol.
