Incase anybody else is wondering, I found one by Doctors best that has 'Biovin' which is some french wine patented extract. And the resveratrol comes from the extract itself not knotweed. I am just sick of Revgenetics constantly having then not having products, changing it so only people willing to pay no less than 30$ a month can get their resveratrol. They use to have one for 13.99 a month which was perfect.
grape or "Red Wine" resveratrol is usually provided in very low purities. By now, you know who I am as I represent the company you mentioned in your post above. Here is a little history so that you can understand how the quality and pricing has evolved.
1- Out first product was a 1000 mg capsule with 500mg of pure trans-resveratrol, and yes we where the first to provide that amount in a capsule... I don't care if Biotivia says they did it, we can prove otherwise since the all the material being sold at that time has only a 50% max on purity (later we made a 300mg capsule which we have discontinued)
Now the issue has always been emodin, as too much of it could cause the runs. Some older people liked the regularity that a little emodin provided, however most of the younger crowd just didn't like this regularity at all. That is why we started providing 99% pure resveratrol to avoid all that issue that some had with emodin.
2- We produced the X500 which is 500mg per capsule of pure white Trans-Reveratrol (now in an enteric capsule)
That said, we then saw that micronized resveratrol (at 1-1.5 microns) was absorbed two times better according to the Sirtris data we have. It is because of this that we ended up producing the capsules with 500 mg of Micronized Resveratrol. Let's get one thing straight... this micronization process is done solely within the United States, it has been impossible to duplicate from any source outside of the United States.
3- Our Micronized 500 mg capsules has Micronized Resveratrol at 1.5 Microns encapsulated in vegetarian capsules.
At this time, Megaresveratrol can not match this micronized material as they state that their resveratrol is 2.5 microns which is close to double that of what we produce, however I suspect it is actually 7.5 microns to 10 Microns because we have tested two resveratrol sources from china (one of which told us that they supplied MegaResveratrol and Longevinex with micronized resveratrol). The particle analysis is attached and as you can see, both chinese "Micronized" batches have an average size of between 7.5 and 10 microns.
Now, I have been tempted to purchase the Chinese Resveratrol and call it Micronized just to sell it to you guys cheaper since many here apparently like cheap res over quality. But the truth of the matter is that we would be reducing the quality that American made micronized resveratrol provides us and used in many of the university resveratrol studies. It is because of this that I am hard pressed to do that at this time.
Now because of the same Sirtris data, we then made our resveratrol & tween capsule that uses tween emulsification to increase the resveratrol absorption by up to 10 fold.
4- Our Micronized Resvertrol and tween capsule is born.
Lastly... Our Polydatin capsules. Some call this stuff "Time-released" resveratrol others simply say it lasts longer activating SIRT 1 than resveratrol, while still others know it is more water soluble than resveratrol and therefore absorbed better. Two studies show it creates a synergy with resveratrol to boot... Whatever the story you have heard, Polydatin is one of those molecules that has not received the attention it deserves and still relatively unknown to the general public.
5- We create the first 500 mg Polydatin capsules because of it's synergy with Resveratrol.
People like cheap, I get it TheFountain.
People will go to Wallmart and purchase cheap and throw quality under the bus, I have seen it. They will go to Amazon and buy a cheap product, believing the quality is there... just because it's on Amazon, only to be purchasing stuff that amounts to dirt. I actually went out and tested an Amazon product to prove my point here: http://goo.gl/jlmmpk
If you want a $13.99 product, let me see if I can make one without all the bells and whistles. Now If I do make it, it will not be pure (and more like the old R300 we used to make) it will only be sold on autoship as I would be stripping all the marketing dollars from it.
How does that sound TheFountain?
