What amount of red wine would one have to drink to achieve an effective dose of reservatol?
Lethal amounts haha. There is only about 1mg of resveratrol in a 5 oz glass of red wine, whereas the supplement I'm taking contains 200mg per pill. If you scroll down this page you can see a small breakdown of resveratrol content in wines: http://lpi.oregonsta...ls/resveratrol/
That's some promising news. I was curious - which brand of resveratrol are you using?
I'm using the NOW Foods brand. I still wouldn't recommend resveratrol to anyone else at this point because what I'm experiencing might just be a fluke, but I'll post an update if I continue to see good results.
Hello Jofo, how are you doing on the Now resveratrol? We have used it in a trial without much luck. We are currently using topical spironolactone on some people. It is sometimes used orally for acne in women. In theory it should reduce oiliness / make the sebaceous glands less sensitive to androgens. Has any male here used it topically for at least 3 months and have success with it?
I think it's still having a positive effect on my oil production. It hasn't been totally consistent day to day, but in general it seems like my oil production is maybe 40-50% slower than normal. I have enough resveratrol to last for another couple of weeks, so I still suggest that everyone let me continue to be the guinea pig here for a little bit before trying resveratrol for yourself.
