Resveratrol, a naturally occurring antioxidant, is present in a wide variety of plants including grapes, peanuts, blueberries and cranberries and has been studied for its cardiovascular and cancer-related effects and health benefits. Resveratrol is also a compound found primarily in red wine which has long been touted as heart healthy.
