Resveratrol – Helps the Body “Protect Against & Mend” Free Radical Damage

  [ 3 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • January 27, 2009


New studies at leading universities keep adding to the evidence that the potent antioxidant resveratrol – found in the skins of red grapes/red wine, certain berries & plants – activates the body’s natural defenses against the free radical damage that underlies aging and such related disease processes as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

See, for example:

The 60 Minutes special "Wine Rx"
"Scientists have fund a substance in red wine that is slowing down the aging process in mice," Morley Safer reports. "Will it someday lengthen the lives of humans, too?"

Substance in Red Wine Found to Keep Hearts Young
Even small doses of resveratrol in food or supplements can potentially boost the quality of life as we age by supporting improved heart health, say researchers at the Universities of Wisconsin and Florida.

Beneficial Effects of Resveratrol on Atherosclerosis
Current research suggests the naturally occurring phytopolyphenol compound resveratrol supports the body six ways to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

Grape Skin Compound (Resveratrol) Fights the Complications of Diabetes
Nearly 13 percent of U.S. adults age 20 and older have diabetes, according to the NIH (about 40% of them still undiagnosed). Now, research carried out by scientists in the UK has found that resveratrol can protect against the cellular damage to blood vessels caused by the high production of glucose in diabetes – including kidney damage, heart disease, and retinal damage.

Mounting Evidence Shows Red Wine Antioxidant Helps Body Kill Cancer
Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center showed for the first time that a natural antioxidant found in grape skins and red wine can help destroy pancreatic cancer cells by reaching to the cancer cell's core energy source, or mitochondria, and crippling its function.
