“A new way of taking health supplements”
LifeTime Resveratrol Gel
Improved Mental Sharpness
Recently, UK researchers conducted a study of healthy adults and determined that neurological blood flow was increased following resveratrol consumption.
Thus, neuroprotective effects have been found in models of neurodegeneration (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Huntington’s disease, or diverse neuropathies).
Increased cardiovascular health
It has been suggested that the daily consumption of red wine, and therefore of Resveratrol, could account for the so-called ‘French paradox’, according to which the population in the south of France, despite eating a diet that is relatively high in saturated fats, presents a low risk of heart disease.
In 2015, researchers analyzed six previously published studies on the effects of resveratrol on blood pressure. The overall outcome of the analysis indicated that a higher dose was found to significantly decrease systolic blood pressure (the top number on a blood pressure reading).
Promotes weight loss
Resveratrol promotes weight loss in two different ways.
First of all, by stimulating the SiRT1 gene in the human body which is the same gene that kicks in when a person engages in a calorie restricted diet; as the body realizes that calories are being reduced, the SiRT1 gene begins working away at the body’s fat stores for extra energy. The ensuing weight loss is usually all the more dramatic
The other major way is that antioxidants like Resveratrol trigger special sensors in a person’s upper intestine giving the person the sensation of being full – which often causes them to eat less.
Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant with many scientists believing that it is the missing link of anti-aging because antioxidants protect your body’s cells from the normal, but damaging, process of oxidation.
Research has shown that Resveratrol may also promote normal cell replication and is able to put a temporary hold on the cell cycle by pausing at a stage which allows for DNA repair.
As a consequence, a greater number of damaged genes are fixed and fewer mistakes continue to replicate in our cells.
According to a 2012 Canadian study, Resveratrol supplementation could provide similar skeletal muscle benefits as endurance training. The study, conducted over a 12-week period on rats, found that Resveratrol supplementation also resulted in an increase of endurance, oxidative metabolism, and enhanced cardiac function. Better yet, the combination of endurance training with Resveratrol supplementation resulted in a performance increase of 21%.
It is almost impossible, to get the recommended dose of Resveratrol from food alone. For example, you would need to drink about 170 glasses of red wine each day to get the equivalent amount of Resveratrol.
Resveratrol exists in both “cis” and “trans” forms, but it’s the trans-Resveratrol form that’s been shown to be most biologically active and protective.
