High-powered microscope demonstrates resveratrol's impact on bacteria.
Microscope images of the bacteria P acnes left untreated (A,B) and incubated for 24 hours (C,D) with resveratrol. Images were taken at 10,000x magnification (A,C) and 29,000x magnification (B,D). According to researchers, resveratrol may alter or weaken the structure of the bacteria as can be seen by the loss of membrane definition and structure on the outside of the bacteria cells incubated with resveratrol.
