Introduction

Antioxidants are the molecules that neutralize the oxidative free radicals and oxidative molecules and thus protect the cells from the consequences of oxidative damage induced pathological conditions. Certain antioxidants, along with their ability to prevent oxidative damage, have the potential to regulate uncontrolled immune responses and thus play a crucial role in the management of metabolic and cardiovascular conditions. Resveratrol is one such molecule that has a multitude of benefits when consumed.
