As the CEO of a longevity nutrition company, it's my job to know about anti aging supplements. I have written this article to talk about my absolute favorite anti aging supplement, resveratrol. It is the most promising supplement commonly available for preventing disease and extending life.
By now you've likely already learned a little about Resveratrol. It is a chemical found in several types of food such as grapes, peanuts, and mulberries. The incredible substance first gained media attention after 60 Minutes aired a show in January 2009 that indicated that resveratrol could greatly increase lifespan by preventing and stopping a few of the worst aging related diseases. Their report was based on science performed by the biologist David A. Sinclair. Since the segment, many dietary supplement companies have been marketing resveratrol supplements.
Resveratrol has only been studied for life extension in animals so far. In studies involving mice and other animals, many effects have been observed. They include greatly increased lifespans, lower rates of some cancers, lower rates of heart disease, lower amounts of overall inflammation, healthier levels of blood sugar, healthier levels of cholesterol, higher levels of exercise endurance, and lower levels of plaque formation in the brain (plaque formation in the brain is a component of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases). Amazingly, resveratrol has even been shown to counteract the detrimental effects of a high fat diet.
Scientists believe that resveratrol achieves these effects as a result of the effect it has on the Sirtuin 1 gene. Resveratrol activates the Sirtuin 1 gene. Activation of the Sirtuin 1 gene is closely correlated with longer and healthier lifespans. Scientists believe that resveratol mimics the effects of a calorie restricted diet, the only currently agreed upon method of life extension.
Most users report increased energy, less incidence of colds, and improved appearance of hair and skin. Some have reported healthier blood sugar levels and lower blood fat levels. I know that it sounds to good to be true. Thus, I encourage you to conduct your own research on the animal studies that have been conducted with resveratrol. The results in mice and monkeys make me very hopeful.About the Author
