Benefits of Red Wine Extract

If the results of a just-completed animal study can be applied to humans, it may be possible for resveratrol to help people avert the harmful effects of high-calorie/high fat diets. The discovery announced today in Nature Magazine could be a timely intervention for overeating and consumption of excessive amounts of fat and sugar. This may be another step closer to proving it is on the threshold of discovering a molecule that may significantly extend human life, or what some call an anti-aging pill.

What is Resveratrol ?

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin produced by several plants that is sold as a nutritional supplement. A number of beneficial health effects, such as anti-cancer, antiviral, neuroprotective, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and life-prolonging effects have been reported. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and as a constituent of red wine but apparently not in sufficient amounts to explain the “French paradox” that the incidence of coronary heart disease is relatively low in southern France despite high dietary intake of saturated fats.
