Want to regain the youth? And I mean without using popular artificial means like all those surgeries, Botox injections etc. Don’t fret as expert help might be at hand. Maybe not right away but according to scientific advances, it seems the medical community to quiet close to it.
A new chemical produced naturally has been known to slow down the aging process and in fact even make your heart better. Its called Resveratrol and it is a phytoalex in that is manufactured in nature without any artificial means by a collection of plants when they are under any perceived or real danger by toxins like bacteria or even fungi. Its like the naturally occurring defense mechanism for the plants.
However scientists have also been able to manufacture it by chemical synthesis from Japanese knotweed. These are then sold as nutritional supplements in stores like GNC etc.
Resveratrol Health Benefits
It has been observed that Resveratrol can extend life span of lab rats. In the experiements conducted under laboratory conditions, on mouse all these following benefits have been observed – anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood-sugar-lowering, and other beneficial cardiovascular effects. However these results have yet to be replicated on humans.
Resveratrol Is Found In
Resveratrol is primarily occuring in the skin of red grapes and is a significant constituent of red wine (woohoo). So even though in south France people eat lot of saturated fats, they have low levels of heart problems. So that migt explain the french paradox. Since the southerners drink too much red wine.
Many in the scientific community believe that Resveratrol is the true elixir of youth and that whoever drinks from this fountain of youth can lead a healthy life. This claim looks promising but is yet to be made functional.
But I do have some evidence to back up this claim. In 1997, it was reported that topical resveratrol applications have been able to prevent cancer of the skin from deteriorating in the mice. Once this study came out, plenty of scientific studies have been kick started around the world to gather better data.
So if medical community if hot on the tails, can the athletic department be far away. French experts have recently published on online article which showed that rats that fed resveratrol performed better on the treadmill. They showed more endurance than their brother rats fed on a simple diet. So this could be the new steroids but a legal one.
So if you want to improve your diet and intake of this naturally occurring substance to make your life health, eat more grapes. Especially grape skins or grapes with seeds.
