Resveratrol is an antioxidant and will oxidize once in the presence of oxygen. If you get a tub of resveratrol powder, it will be much less viable after each time you open the jug. That means a 250 mg scoop will contain much less than that once you get down to the last few scoops.
Q. What is the function of an antioxidant?
A. An antioxidant, like resveratrol, is any molecule that is stable with or without all its necessary electrons. A free radical, on the other hand, is a molecule that is unstable when it loses an electron.
The purpose of an antioxidant is to donate one of its electrons to the unstable free radicals. Once it has done that, both molecules are stable.
An unstable free radical causes damage to nearby healthy cells when it "bounces" around looking for an electron to steal. A damaged healthy cell is the cause of aging, illness and disease.
Antioxidant, therefore, are nature's solution to that problem.
