Anti-aging Supplements are notorious for not including any scientific evidence of their effectiveness. This site describes products that are  scientifically demonstrated to work. Purchase links are also provided.

Resveratrol

Evidence: A 2013 Harvard Medical School article states: “the science of aging has increasingly focused on sirtuins, a group of genes that are believed to protect many organisms, including mammals, against diseases of aging. Mounting evidence has demonstrated that resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of grapes as well as in peanuts and berries, increases the activity of a specific sirtuin, SIRT1. … ‘In the history of pharmaceuticals, there has never been a drug that binds to a protein to make it run faster in the way that resveratrol activates SIRT1’” said [Dr.] David Sinclair” (http://hms.harvard.edu/news/new-study-validates-longevity-pathway-3-7-13)

Comments: There are many companies selling the resveratrol supplement. Often resveratrol is only one of several ingredients. For now, I am familiar only with the science behind resveratrol and personally use a resveratrol supplement that contains only resveratrol as an active ingredient.

Availability: You can obtain the version that I use at this Amazon link: reserveage resveratrol 500 mg. This brand has also been approved for sale at major health food chains such as Whole Foods and Sprouts, though at much higher prices.

Dosage Guidance: A limit of 1000 mg per day is suggested by an extensive scientific report in their conclusions section, based on a complilation of numerous human testing trials.

More Details: The U. S. National Institutes of Health provides a lengthy report on numerous scientific studies done on resveratrol.
