What You Should Know
Genceutic Naturals Wild Crafted Resveratrol claims to potentially support heart health and blood flow. It may also work as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Antioxidants are a hot topic in weight loss and general health, but some experts are concerned that over-supplementation of antioxidants can be more harmful than helpful. Oxidants are used by the body for various functions, including, vasodilation or dilation of blood vessels. If too many antioxidants are taken, the oxidants are killed off and there are not sufficient enough amounts to perform healthy actions. Genceutics offers a clean website that is easy to navigate. Visitors can easily see product descriptions, testimonials and price all on one page. There is not a list of ingredients, however, so we must assume Genceutics Naturals Wild Crafted Resveratrol is a one-ingredient supplement.
List of Ingredients
Resveratrol 100 mg.
We found it interesting that Genceutics felt the need to verify just how much Resveratrol was included in Wild Crafted Resveratrol. The product description reads “Guaranteed 100 mg”. We wonder if the company has been docked in the past for claiming to include an ingredient is certain amounts when that was not the case.
Resveratrol is commonly sold by anti-aging companies for its antioxidant abilities. As a strong antioxidant, Resveratrol can fight free radical damage that leads to cell death and early aging. Free radicals occur in the body as a by-product of metabolism. Environmental factors like smoking, drinking and pollution may also increase free radical damage.
There are many studies on Resveratrol, but none have any weight loss basis nor do they list weight loss benefits. The studies do tend to support heart healthy benefits of Resveratrol. There are three common sources of Resveratrol; knotweed, grapes and wine peanuts. Grapes are associated with the French Paradox which describes why French people eat fatty meals and tend to maintain a healthy weight and heart. Wine drinking is associated with the French Paradox, so supplements derived from sources other than grapes may not have the same effect.
Genceutics Wild Crafted Resveratrol sells for $19.99 per bottle. This is a relatively low price for a Resveratrol supplement though there are some with lower prices. Visitors can order the product from the Genceutics website and popular vitamin shops online.

Dieters may gain heart healthy benefits from Resveratrol, but there is no association between weight loss, fat loss and Resveratrol. Some experts believe the increase in metabolism during times of dieting leads to an increase in free radicals requiring more antioxidants. This could be a good theory, but dieters may wish to drink another strong antioxidant proven to have weight loss benefits like green tea.
