Hey- whaddaya know: ConsumerLabs.com resveratrol report is finally out:
1. Didn't test a huge variety of supplements (14)- no RevGenetics, NOW, etc.
2. Only looked at "resveratrol" (not trans-resveratrol) content.
3. Failures include Life Extension 20 mg tabs and Resvert tabs by Young Again (much less than claimed amounts of "resveratrol."
4. Jarrow, Country Life, Biotiva Transmax, Longevinex, and Swanson pass.

Nice to hear from you.
Yes, Life Extension has conducted assays over time on the resveratrol product and shown that the amount per capsule meets the label claim.
Concerning the amount given to the mice, it is not always wise to assume that the same proportional amount is good for humans. Future clinical studies will determine the best human dosage.
For longer life,
