How much resveratrol should I be taking daily?

There is no official recommended daily dosage for resveratrol, a plant chemical that’s primarily found in red wine, grapes and peanuts. Studies suggest high doses may cut the risk of heart disease, cancer and a number of other conditions, but more research is needed to confirm those benefits.

Some people should not take resveratrol supplements because of the possibility of side effects. For instance, women with hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, endometriosis and uterine fibroids should not take resveratrol because the compound may act like estrogen and make these conditions worse. Resveratrol may also slow blood clotting and should never be taken with other anti-clotting medications or supplements, including clopidogrel, dalteparin, enoxaparin, heparin, warfarin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and diclofenac.
