Resveratrol is found in red wine, pistachios, peanut butter, cranberries, and blueberries. Plants produce resveratrol to protect themselves from foreign invaders like fungi and bacteria.
A study conducted in 2015 that showed resveratrol had immune-boosting and immune-suppressing effects. This makes it more confusing about resveratrol's benefits for your dog.
But the science proves that resveratrol can:
- lower blood pressure
- decrease inflammation
- lower blood sugar
- decrease cholesterol
- may extend your animal’s lifespan
More studies are needed to understand the benefits of resveratrol. But given in small doses, it is safe for your dog. You can buy resveratrol and give as daily supplementation. But the easiest way to supplement is giving foods that contain resveratrol. Give a few blueberries or cranberries in your dog’s meal once daily.
Resveratrol has a benefit for your dog. The science is confusing. But we are sure your dog will love the addition of blueberries or cranberries added to his meal.
