Resveratrol supplements: are they worth it?

Research on resveratrol (polyphenol found in red wine, grapes, and berries) is limited. Experts say that it could be heart-healthy, however, no evidence so far has been conclusive. I support getting healthful plant compounds like resveratrol from whole foods instead of supplements for maximum absorption and high bioavailability. Enjoy a glass of red wine each day to get some resveratrol and also to protect your good (HDL) cholesterol levels.
