Resveratrol - The Essential
Baby Boomer Supplement
Ok, I don't hide the fact that as a typical Baby Boomer, I want
to look young and feel young for as long as I can!
And I really want this web site to help you do the same too, if
that's your intention.
So when I came across this video about Resveratrol, the
information held me spellbound!
This is very exciting stuff!
I've put the video here for you to see.......
So, let me try and summarize for you………..
What is Resveratrol?
It's a kind of Antioxidant.
It’s also a Polyphenol plant chemical and a type of Phytoalexin,
which is a chemical compound that plants produce for self –
One example is that it provides a protective barrier against
disease and fungus in plants.
And it seems that it works in a similar self – defense
way in humans.
How does Resveratrol work in my Body?
Proteins in your body called ‘Sirtuins’ are produced naturally
to extend life under stressful conditions (such as severe
calorie restriction, or even starvation):
Sirtuins transmit signals to every cell in your body to cancel
out the effects of aging. They bring the processes that lead to
cell death to a crawl, buying your body more time to repair DNA
Components in this compound activate Sirtuin genes (recognized
as some of the ‘Anti Aging’ genes), and this helps to extend
And Science Research has shown that it gives protection
to many of the diseases which occur with aging, such as
Diabetes, Heart and Cardiovascular Disease, High ‘Bad
Cholesterol’ and Stroke.
Other scientifically studied benefits of this Supplement include:
i) It Improves Endothelial Function Leading to Heart Health.
ii) It Activates New Brain Synapses.
iii) It Inhibits the Formation of Fat Cell and helps Weight Loss
iv) It may help to prevent Eye Disease.
So what’s all this about Resveratrol and Calorie Restriction?
Scientific Research demonstrates that a Calorie Restricted diet
can extend lifespan.
The Research conducted includes Mice, Monkeys as well as ongoing
human collection data. All animals seem to live a healthier life
(for example, in humans, calorie restricted diets lead to a
lowering of High Blood Pressure) and their internal organs
function in a more youthful state.
But although the health benefits seem proven, Calorie
Restriction is difficult, requires huge amounts of discipline
and must be maintained for the long term.
Scientists refer to this Supplement as a Calorie Restriction
Mimetic (or CRM for short) because it mimics the substantial
Anti Aging effects of Calorie Restriction. In fact, it's proven
to be a very potent CRM.
The good news is that it appears to mimic Calorie Restriction by
turning on the Sirtuin genes. So people can get the same health
benefits taking this Supplement as with Calorie Restriction.
How Can I take Resveratrol into my Diet?
There are 2 ways you can take this beneficial Supplement into
a) Food selection
Most commonly found in the following foods:
Skin of red grapes
Blueberries, Bilberries, Cranberries
Another good option is Itadori tea. This tea is made from the
root of the Japanese Knotweed, and it is high in the health
giving benefits of Resveratrol.
Existing in 2 forms, Trans and Cis,
The Trans form is the natural form.
The Cis form is synthetic.
The Trans is more effective than the Cis.
So ideally, a
would consist of the Trans form, as well as giving you the correct
potency to be effective.
So increasing your intake could be one of the best Anti Aging
decisions you can make.
