What is Resveratrol?

You have probably heard about it now, since it is a topic well talked about on the internet. It is also talked about on TV programs like Dr Oz. Resveratrol has become a common household name but few people understand it and how to incorporate it on their diet. First, people need to know exactly what Resveratrol is. Resveratrol is a compound found naturally in food such as grapes, berries, raspberries, cranberries and other fruits and plants. This compound is now regarded as an excellent source of antioxidants. It all started when researchers at Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging conducted a study on mice. In the study, the researchers had three group of mice. The first group was given Resveratrol along with a high fat diet (60% of the calories came from fat), the second group was give the same high fat diet but no Resveratrol, and the third group was given a healthy diet (non-fat diet). At the conclusion of the study, the researchers found that, the group that was given Resveratrol, in addition to living longer and avoiding the perils of the high fat diet, also performed a lot better on tests of balance and coordination as they got older compared to the other high fat diet animals. In combining this particular study with earlier studies, the scientists found that a logical explanation on how Resveratrol is able to achieve this result is in mimicking the effects of caloric restriction on longevity. The study worked with the well known findings that mice that have a nutritious diet (40% less calories than a standard mouse diet) will live up to 50% longer than those that had a usual complement of calories. Now you may ask how is that applicable to humans. It is applicable in that it suggests that anti-aging is not a myth, it is based on scienfific evidence, and that it is all based on the diet. The diet is the key to how long people live and it is possible to feel healthy and vibrant even as one ages. Moreover, scientists have identified the genes that is affected in reversing the effects of aging. The gene that controls this process is known as the SIRT-1 genes. This particular study did not address the issue of how to activate the SIRT-1 genes, but scientist are now studying how Resveratrol work to activate the SIRT-1 genes. That is all good news. But here is the problem, how does one go about getting the Resveratrol that was given to the mice in this study. To get the resveratrol dose that was given to the mice in this study (24 mg of resveratrol per kilogram of body weight), you would have to drink far more wine than is sensible, or even possible, for a human being to drink. By the way, it is suggested that Red Wine is the wine of choice for the purpose of getting the most amount of Resveratrol. But, again, to really be effective in reversing the effects of aging, and to begin to have an effect on the SIRT-1 genes you would need to drink A WHOLE LOT OF RED WINE. That of course is not practical, and not recommended. And according to world reknown doctor of alternative medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil, it is doubtful that you could get that amount of dose in any supplements now available. To address this problem, some companies have attempted to produce Resveratrol and make that available in their products. The consumer need to really beware of the claims that are out there by a lot of companies that are using the name of Resveratrol, but really lacks in credibility in terms of the product itself. There is one company, however, that has produced a strong, potent amount of the Resveratrol needed to begin the process of turning on the SIRT-1 genes. Patrick Saint-Jean E-mail:
