Abstract:


Resveratrol has been extensively researched for its powerful antioxidant capacity and other biological effects. The number of patents involving this compound has been growing in recent years. However, the biggest problem associated with this molecule, a limited bioavailability due to its fast metabolism in the liver, has led to obtaining its analogues or derivatives. In this work, we selected patents which describe the application of the antioxidant activity of resveratrol and its analogues as food for the human segment.
