Resveratrol; anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant. Protects against Alzheimer’s

Resveratrol is a compound from grapes. There is high amounts of resveratrol in wine. There is a saying….

There are many benefits to red wine. Here are some:

There is a resveratrol supplement.

Benefits of Resveratrol (sources sighted under src)

Anti-Cancer

As well as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and cardio-protective (reducing the risk of heart disease) effects, resveratrol has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Laboratory and animal research has shown that resveratrol can act against cancer cells by activating or deactivating molecular pathways. src

Anti-Inflammatory

Resveratrol has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to protect you against diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. The anti-inflammatory effects of resveratrol make it a good remedy for arthritis, and skin inflammation src

Anti-Anxiety, Depression

(lowering anxiety is important to heal)

Recent research has shown that resveratrol can have a potential anti-stress effect by blocking the expression of an enzyme that is associated with the control of stress. Thus, resveratrol is considered a potential candidate for the development of treatments for anxiety and depression. src

Anti-aging

The antiaging mechanisms of resveratrol were mainly ameliorating oxidative stress, relieving inflammatory reaction, improving mitochondrial function, and regulating apoptosis. Resveratrol could be an effective and safe compound for the prevention and treatment of aging and age-related diseases. src

Balding

Resveratrol is also believed to boost mitochondrial function and, in turn, the energy production of the hair cells. This helps keep hair follicles healthy and young. Some research also suggests that resveratrol can help suppress a hormone that can inhibit blood flow to the hair follicle.

Heart disease, Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes

Heart disease: It’s thought to help reduce inflammation, lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and make it more difficult for clots to form that can lead to a heart attack.

Cancer: It could limit the spread of cancer cells and start killing them.

Alzheimer’s: It may protect nerve cells from damage and fight the plaque buildup that can lead to the disease.

Diabetes: Resveratrol helps prevent insulin resistance, a condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin. The condition can lead to diabetes.

Researchers believe that resveratrol activates the SIRT1 gene. That gene is believed to protect the body against the effects of obesity and the diseases of aging.

Sounds like a good investment.
