Resveratrol can be recognized as a best nutraceutical. Resveratrol is a novel nutraceutical in which not many details are known therefore an attempt was made to review the details which may be used for the further research. Resveratrol is known to be a polyphenol named as stilbenoid group which is a phytoalexin secreted by more than 70 plant species which is having many pharmacological activities like anticancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, neuroprotective, cardioprotective, anti-microbial and etc. This natural table top food has a lower bioavailability with lower aqueous solubility. From this review we can conclude that resveratrol is a unique complex having various properties with lots of other benefits.
