    Default New Study Touts Big Health Benefits of Resveratrol

    Big Pharma is drooling over the prospect of getting it all to themselves.

    Resveratrol, a substance found in the skin of red grapes as well as in pomegranates and Japanese knotweed, has been a popular dietary supplement for many years. It has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, possibly the potential to extend life, prevent several different cancers, protect the heart, ameliorate common diabetes symptoms, and control plaque in the brain and otherwise help with Alzheimer’s disease. And that isn’t even a complete list. It’s clear why drug companies are excited.

    Resveratrol is widely available as a dietary supplement—but may not be for long if we are not vigilant. A new study has thrown the excitement over resveratrol into high gear. Results from ten years of research have just been published by David Sinclair, a Harvard Medical School genetics professor and the study’s senior author. The research validated earlier findings that resveratrol may protect against age-related diseases because it turns on the SIRT1 gene that recharges mitochondria.

    Wow! The never ending soap-box-saga continues between the FDA and the druuuug companies.

    Seems they just won't let well enough alone. If they market it as a drug, as the article stated, synthetic, there will not be any negative electrons and therefore cannot even be stated as any sort of anti toxin, anti aging, anti inflamatory or nutritional value what so ever. And as most PHD's will tell you, it will only lead to more ill health effects. I don't even have to ask why they can get away with something like this.

    I get red grapes often. Try to wash them and hope to get some resveratrol with a lot of negative electrons that come from good-ole-mother nature.

    A great source of resveratrol, if you have access to it, is the invasive plant commonly called "bamboo." Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is high in resveratrol in both leaves and root. I juice the young leaves in spring and use the root in stir-frys. Yes, it's seasonal and it's best to harvest the young shoots. Do a Google image search to identify it.
