Posted By: Dr. Gary Bellman on May 14, 2013
Human aging is a part of the biological process. You can’t stop the clock, but can you slow it down, and promote graceful aging?
It is possible that one person looks younger than his/her age. We see it often these days due to many of us leading active lifestyles and also considering all the options to promote/better our health.
Resveratrol is a compound that is found in the skin of red grapes. It’s the primary substance that is responsible for red wine’s purported health benefits, and is also found in peanuts, blueberries, pomegranates, spruce, and eucalyptus.
Resveratrol has gained a lot of attention for its reported anti-aging and disease-combating benefits. Research, supports that resveratrol helps protect the body against a number of diseases, including cancer! Additionally, resveratrol aids in prevention of age-related problems such as heart disease and insulin resistance. Researchers also believe that resveratrol activates the SIRT1 gene, that seems to protect the body against the harmful effects of obesity and the diseases of aging.
Here’s to better health, with a glass of red wine or a handful of berries!
