On November 16 Evolva released a Press Release announcing a collaboration with Northumbria University’s Brain, Performance and Nutrition Research Centre in the UK and Evolva’s Veri-te™ resveratrol.
The collaboration will include a series of human intervention studies that will assess the inter-relationships between:
- gut health (through microbiota populations)
- systemic inflammation
- cognitive function
- cerebral blood-flow
- peripheral blood-flow
and how all of these factors can be modulated by resveratrol dietary supplementation. The results of these studies should prove very interesting.

Prompted by the interesting news Evolva were contacted by Paul Creasy from Nutrition Insight who wrote an article about the collaboration, which was published on their website on November 17.
Research shows that consuming polyphenols, including resveratrol, can positively benefit gut microbiota, acting in a similar way to prebiotics. While research has shown resveratrol’s benefits on blood flow, cardiovascular health and cognitive function, no research has directly examined the interrelationship with gut microbiota.
The initial trial will include approximately 100 overweight and obese subjects with ages between 35 and 60 and will investigate this relationship. Two studies are planned over a three-year period.
“We are pleased to partner with Northumbria University using Veri-te resveratrol in this groundbreaking research,” says Angela Tsetsis, Evolva Senior Vice President, Resveratrol. “Evolva continues to lead the way to increase the knowledge about the benefits of resveratrol for human health.”
“There is growing interest in digestive and gut health, both among health care professionals and in the public in general,” Stephan Herrera, VP Strategy & Public Affairs adds. “The aim of these studies is to produce new and useful insights about a relatively new area of research: resveratrol’s effect on the gut-brain axis, and in so doing, on digestive and gut health.”
