Does anyone know how much resveratrol one should take for depression?

Thanks.

I"m not really sure. Sorry...not particularly helpful, lol. I did some Google-ing, and it seems you can get combo products--grape seed extract+reservatrol, for instance--that might be more effective through some kind of synergy (?).

I did find a blog where some dude was talking about it for his issues (Bipolar I), and he wrote about taking 100mgs/day. But...that's not exactly the most accurate or reliable source of information, lol.

Because I've been doing orthomolecular for so long, my approach would be to take as much as I could tolerate, for as long as it took to get an effect (OM is based on high doses, long term treatment). But...that's just me.

Hope you find some quality information.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your input.

Thanks.

I will follow your approach to dosing. I have already begun taking 250 mg/day. I will continue with this dose for two or three weeks. If I am not improved, I will increase the dosage to 500 mg/day. This stuff is supposed to be well-tolerated.

My theory:

resveratrol -> PDE4 inhibition -> cAMP increase -> BDNF increase -> hippocampal neurogenesis -> improvement of depression

Hi Scott,

I know this is an old post but did you have any success with resveratrol? Thank you,

Joseph

I honestly don't remember why I decided not to take it.

I wish I had more useful information for you.

I'm glad to see you posting here again. I'm sure we could learn much from each other.
