New Brunswick, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2012 -- HealthFoodPost.com has published a free 4 part video series, which should help consumers better understand the hard-to-understand ingredients labels on resveratrol nutritional supplements. The videos can be viewed here http://healthfoodpost.com/resveratrol/resveratrol-ingredients-labels/. The free video series uses, as an example, resveratrol supplements and the company is planning future videos discussing ingredients labels on other nutritional supplements.
Resveratrol supplements ingredients labels are trickier than most other nutritional supplements, but all supplement labels require a little effort in order to properly understand exactly what is contained in a product. And, since health and well being are at stake, proper understanding of a products ingredients is critical to making an informed choice, in addition to getting the best value.
Resveratrol is made up of two ingredients, cis-resveratrol and trans-resveratrol. The trans-resveratrol is the desirable part. So, if the if the ingredients label only indicates that the ingredient is resveratrol without further clarification, that label is not telling the whole story.
Part 1 of the video series shows resveratrol labels from 2 different products. One label indicates 350 mg of resveratrol and the other indicates 200 mg of trans-resveratrol. A consumer lacking the background knowledge regarding what these terms mean could easily be led to believe the 350 mg product is the better choice, but that would be incorrect in the example on the video, for reasons explained in the video.
Part 2 of the video series provides another example of the difficulty interpreting ingredients labels by comparing one resveratrol supplement label indicating 50% trans-resveratrol containing 400mg per capsule, to another supplement containing 99% trans-resveratrol with 200 mg per capsule. At first glance it may seem logical to assume that these two products are essentially the same, but they are not. In fact, the 400 mg product contains 200 mg of an entirely different ingredient.
There is more helpful information in Parts 3 and 4, including a discussion of so-called proprietary blends in Part 4, and the company encourages consumers to view these videos prior to making a resveratrol supplement purchase. There is also a section on the website featuring videos from many top experts discussing the potential health benefits of resveratrol.
