Piceatannol is a natural stilbene occurring in a number of plant
species, and it has been shown to have beneficial effects on human
health. The compound can seldom be consumed by humans, because it
occurs mostly in non-food plants, or in non-edible organs. There
are only a few plants reported to contain minute amounts of
piceatannol. The scarcity of this compound impedes researchers
from continuing to study its properties and health benefits.
Piceatannol has a very similar structure to the renowned
resveratrol and, also, similar
anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
However, piceatannol has much more potent biological activity and
bioavailability than resveratrol. Like resveratrol, piceatannol
has been studied for its
and has been deemed the superior agent of the two.
recently been discovered that the Muscadine grapes, along with our
Muscadine grape products, contain piceatannol. The University
Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Piacenza, Italy, found that the Vitis
Vinifera Cabernet Sauvignon grape had a "significant amount"
(0.052 mg/g wet weight) of piceatannol. Our analytical data shows
that our product, in its finished dry, powdered form,
contains 1.41 mg/g of piceatannol.
inventory of Muscadine grape skins, containing both resveratrol
and piceatannol, is the
largest known supply in the world.
Our company has plans to upkeep and increase the supply of the
Muscadine grapes so that we can continue to give you the
you need for your health and happiness.
