Resveratrol bioavailability explained

Metabolized means resveratrol is attached to detoxification molecules sulfate and glucuronate, so this blocks resveratrol from entering cell walls. At the site of inflammation, infection or malignancy there is a very active enzyme called glucuronidase that unzips resveratrol from its carrier protein and renders it as free unbound resveratrol. So resveratrol is bioavailable at the right time and place. Researchers affiliated with a drug company started the myth that resveratrol is not bioavailable.
