Author(s): Shashi Ranjan, Subas Chandra Dinda, Anurag Verma

This review aims to summarize the major therapeutic roles played by resveratrol and their associated pathways. Aspects of this ingredient with potential therapeutic applications have also been highlighted in the review. Various studies concerning resveratrol's health benefits are discussed in the article. Various cardiovascular diseases and cancer therapies are linked to oxidative stress, which is a probable pathophysiological factor. It has been proven that resveratrol, with its powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties, restores the normal function of the heart and also protects against cancer. Resveratrol has also been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, hypertension, stroke, and complications. Resveratrol is also shown to be a significant cancer-fighting ingredient. According to the review, resveratrol could be useful for coronary heart disease and cancer chemotherapy as it lessens Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress.
