How Res-Vygor Works
Physiologically, estradiol has the strongest estrogenic effects in the human body; it is slightly more potent than estrone and significantly more potent than estriol. Problems arise in both males and females when estrogen (particularly estradiol) levels are too high or too low. This can lead to irregular estrogen levels, low sex drive, weakened immune function, irritability, fatigue, weight gain, and more. 1,2,3
Research on resveratrol has shown it acts as a modulator of estrogenic hormone production by regulating estrogen receptor binding. 4 In turn, this modifies luteinizing hormone and follicle- stimulating hormone levels, which ultimately regulate the production of testosterone. It has also been demonstrated that, in males, resveratrol increases sperm output and supports sexual health. 5
Moreover, grape seed extract found in Res-Vygor contains a highly potent class of antioxidants—called proanthocyanidins— which have been shown to support healthy blood pressure and blood flow by expanding blood vessels. 6,7 We also included green tea leaf extract, providing catechins that support the cardiovascular system and immunity by acting on reactive oxygen species in the body. 8,9
Res-Vygor is rounded out with the plant polyphenol quercetin. This potent antioxidant appears to work synergistically with resveratrol to support blood lipid levels, blood flow, and also promote heart health. 10,11
In summary, research suggests the ingredients found in Res-Vygor work to support:
- Healthy estrogen metabolism
- Healthy blood lipid levels and vascular function
- Mood and well-being
- Energy levels
- Antioxidant activity throughout the body
- Sexual health in males
