Epilepsy is one of the most common diseases affecting the nervous system, with more than 50 million patients suffering from epilepsy worldwide. Although epilepsy has been prevalent for thousands of years, it is still not possible to completely control the disease. Despite an increase in the number of available antiepileptic drugs, the incidence of epilepsy and its cure rate have not been substantially improved; thus, there is an urgent need to identify new drugs that treat, cure or protect against epilepsy. Resveratrol is a polyphenol compound with a broad range of biological activity; not only it has considerable antiepileptic effects, but it is also neuroprotective and has functions to counter epileptic depression. Resveratrol has the potential to be a new antiepileptic drug, thus further studies are needed to better investigate its potential.
