Live & Grind's Nitro Cold Brew is the only nitro coffee infused with resveratrol. But what is it? Resveratrol (pronounced rez-VERA-trawl) is a polyphenol that is produced in plants to respond to threats like environmental hazards like pollution, intense weather, and predators. It works like an antioxidant to fight off free radicals on a cellular level.

You've probably heard about resveratrol before. It is most commonly found in the skins of red grapes and is present in red wine. Decades of research have linked resveratrol and cardiovascular health. If you have heard the advice about drinking a glass of red wine with dinner, that's because of the resveratrol found in red grapes. To get the full benefits of antioxidants, it's best to consume them every day.

Resveratrol studies are on-going. Over the last thirty years, research has uncovered positive links to not only cardiovascular health, but also can play a role in healthy aging through bone health, blood glucose control, healthy cognitive function, skin youthfulness and oral health (See a list of studies here.) Resveratrol works as an antioxidant at the cellular level to help prevent inflammation and support healthy aging.
