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 anti-cancer properties and has been deemed the superior agent of the two.

It has 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.

Our 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 100% all-natural products you need for your health and happiness.
