Despite French food being high in saturated fats, France has one
of the lowest rates of heart disease in the world. Scientists call
this phenomenon the French paradox.
Red wine the key?
One theory is that the answer lies in the considerable amount of
red wine the French drink. Or, more importantly, the powerful
antioxidant red wine contains called resveratrol.
Increased fat burning
Resveratrol activates an important chemical pathway called
SIRT1. Scientists at the University of Tennessee found that a
supplement containing resveratrol and the amino acid leucine (which
also stimulates SIRT1) promoted fat burning and increased cell
mitochondria (cell powerhouses).
Our R&D innovations team have developed PepForm® Leucine
Peptides with improved solubility and absorption compared to free
form amino acids. A supplement containing resveratrol and a leucine
ingredient such as this may improve fat loss. And an added
advantage is that consumers looking for leucine's muscle-building
advantages can benefit from PepForm® Leucine's fast-acting delivery
