Resveratrol. Is it the answer?

60 Minutes ran a segment about the health benefits of red wine, specifically the apparent powers of resveratrol, a polyphenol that is found in the skin of grapes and is thought to prevent illness and promote longevity (the Brain Fitness Blog reported on this a few months ago). Resveratrol is said to have a role in preventing clots and is believed to inhibit the production of LDL cholesterol. The 60 Minutes episode highlighted the work of Dr. Christoph Westphal and Harvard biochemist David Sinclair, whose research suggests that resveratrol can delay the aging process and prevent many gerontological diseases. A few years ago, scientists reported that resveratrol may discourage the onset of one such illness, Alzheimer’s. It is also claimed that this antioxidant can boost stamina, reduce lung inflammation stemming from chronic pulmonary disease, and help stave off cancer. Scientists in Cambridge, Massachusetts, also say that they’ve isolated the chemical and given it to mice. The mice given high doses of Resveratrol were able to run farther, didn’t gain as much weight, and lived 20% longer.

  1. Resveratrol capsules may enable us to absorb the essential amino acids and vital nutrients that would ensure the complete well being of our bodies. Taking this interesting compound as a dietary supplement activates the longevity gene, which means, we live longer. We have long been searching for the fountain of youth, and well, I guess this is one step closer. People spend thousands of dollars for plastic surgery. Compared to the dollars you have to shell out on these treatments, trying out a natural supplement seems to be a safer, healthier and less expensive option. I also think that having dietary supplements containing this antioxidant is very convenient, especially for people who are always on the go and for people who opt not to drink wine.

  2. You have to be very careful of the manufacturer that you choose. Quality can vary greatly. If you do choose to take resveratrol, start off at a low dose and increase it slowly to the recommended level. I found good results doing this

  3. I’ve seen several independent lab tests for Biotivia ‘s products. You actually get what you’re paying for.

  4. Most of the as-seen-on-tv resveratrol websites with the 60 Minutes video and “free trial” offers never disclose the ingredients of their products. They also charge exorbitant prices compared to other legitimate resveratrol vendors. compares prices from legitimate vendors and has info on other herbs with longevity properties.

  5. Because resveratrol is so popular, many people are taking advantage of the uninformed puplic. There are a lot of scams out there with Free trials that end up costing you a fortune, or reoccuring billing that you can never cancel. I bought from this compay Resjuve. They had a lot of information on there website. I ended up buying one bottle and I have been satisified so far.

  6. it was a huge mistake. i just wanted to try it. when i wanted to take it bake the company was very rude to me, and refused to give me a RMA number. they also decided to take almost 300$ out of my account.
