resveratrol news

I was just scanning the health news on the internet and this popped up. Very interesting since the Johnson book says to take a supplement, but then I read on this board that possibly it had been disproved later as a sham--according to this article now a very reputable source recommends taking it again--worth reading and, who knows!!

sorry--probably have to copy and paste

Thank you Karinala!

I am all about anything ANTI-AGING! I have been taking it also!!! I think the main thing is to know that the fraud is rampant in the "supplement" industry and to know your source is truly authentic resveratrol.

I do want to point out that the "sham" was the one particular study that was done at an ivy league medical school (UCON). Evidently, they exaggerated the results and really skewed what the final analysis produced.

More on this here...

However, there is lots of scientific studies that are legit and they are easy to look up under NIH.gov....

This is a lengthy read, but it explains in detail the scientific research on wine and "The French Paradox". Scroll down and read specifically the section on obesity and diabetes, very interesting...

I'm glad that there've been some good studies that uphold the idea that it's a good thing.

The results of the studies run at Harvard and at UConn were discredited after the researchers were exposed as having fudged the results. Rather a great deal.

But I don't think that necessarily means this product is therefore completely worthless. And since there haven't been reports of harm from it that I've ever heard, I think anybody who wants to supplement with the stuff should feel comfortable with that decision.

And if it turns out to be a really, really good help in the battle against weight and against aging, that will put you ahead! Yay!

I haven't read the links yet, but I will. Thank you for posting, Karinala & Sunday.

I get most of my resveratrol from wine, but also the occasional supplements, and I do think there is something to its effects for at least indirectly helping to activate the sirt1.

I may comment more when I get through the articles.
