1. A mix of two food components may have a double slimming effect in the body. According to a test tube study done at the University of Georgia, a mix of quercetin and resveratrol stops growing fat cells from taking up more fats. And the mix kills fully-grown fat cells too.
2. Resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of red grapes, has an anti-oestrogenic effect. According to an in-vitro study done at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006, the effect is so strong that high but not impossible doses can protect women against breast cancer. And, we’d add, it can help athletes to lower their estradiol levels.
3. Resveratrol is a powerful anabolic for spinal discs, researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago discovered when they did tests on the intervertebral discs of cattle. Resveratrol, a substance found in grapes and peanuts and popular with longevity seekers, may protect spinal discs in humans who overstrain their backs.
4. Organic antioxidant scavengers are small molecular compounds that readily reduce free radicals, peroxides, and oxidized molecules, thereby neutralizing their effect and protecting functionally sensitive proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids from oxidative damage – Resveratrol is one of these potent compounds
5. The top 3 things to raise the cardioprotective fractions (The good fractions of HDL) niacin (500 mg)-panthetine (900 mg)-Resveratrol (400mg)
6. Resveratrol may protect nerve cells from damage and the buildup of plaque that can lead to Alzheimer’s
7. Resveratrol is thought to limit the spread of cancer cells and trigger the process of cancer cell death (apoptosis).
8. Resveratrol helps prevent insulin resistance, a condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the blood sugar-lowering hormone, insulin. Insulin resistance is a precursor to diabetes.
9. Resveratrol may protect nerve cells from damage and the buildup of plaque that can lead to Alzheimer’s.
10. Resveratrol supplements might interact with blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen, increasing the risk for bleeding.
