Doctors suggest that a person can take up to 500mg of resveratrol in one day. However, they do not specify which brand should be endorsed in particular. They suggest doing your own research and buying it from a reputable company.
Since the studies and research that has been conducted on resveratrol has only been on mice and not humans, doctors cannot confirm the benefits or side effects of resveratrol that the supplements might have on people. The studies, so far, have not found any serious side effects even when resveratrol is taken in large amounts. However, there is a risk that the supplement interacts with warfarin or anti-inflammatory medicines (examples include ibuprofen and aspirin), which are blood thinners, hence increasing the possibility of bleeding.

Resveratrol is a popular natural remedy said to offer a wide range of health benefits. Found naturally on grapes skin,
resveratrol is now commonly available in the form of supplements. According to the research, reseveratrol acts as an
anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. Weight loss is one of the many benefits that the supplements bring along.
In a recent scientific research, it was found that resveratrol can stimulate the expression adiponectin, a hormone that
possesses anti-obesity properties and fights insulin resistance. Studies also show that resveratrol can help speed up and
make the metabolism system work more efficiently and counteract production of fat cells.
There are several companies selling resveratrol supplements in the form of capsules and tablets that are available in the market. The prices fluctuate highly between different brands. The manufacturers include: Planetary Herbals, Paradise Herbs, FoodScience, Nature's Way, Now Foods, Country Life, Doctor's Best, Gluten Free, Blue Bonnet
Dr. Oz endorses resveratrol and suggests the use of 500mg every day, but does not support any particular brand,
even those whose ads misleadingly feature his picture. He is not specifically inclined towards a particular brand.
Amazon received varied reviews for different brands of the product. The users, however, are happy with the product and noticed how taking the supplements improved their metabolism and helped them lose weight at the same time. A few customers also complained that the products brought side effects such as a racing heart and leg pains, due to which they had to stop its use.
