How can you get resveratrol naturally from foods?

ANSWER

Resveratrol is in red grape skins, grape juice, peanuts, mulberries, and some Chinese herbs.

Some people wonder if they should drink more red wine because of the possible health benefits of resveratrol. However, most experts and organizations like the American Heart Association don't recommend that. Limit alcoholic drinks to no more than one per day for women and two for men. Four ounces of red wine equals one drink. Other forms of alcohol don't have resveratrol.
