Unfortunately, resveratrol is very poorly absorbed once it enters the gastrointestinal tract, but new research has shown that it can be absorbed readily through the mucous membranes lining our mouths leading to blood levels up to 100 times greater if slowly sipped and allowed to linger in the mouth a bit versus being gulped down.

So sip and savor!
