How RESVERATROL May Slow Aging


The Amazing Health Benefits of #Resveratrol Everyone Should Know!

The General Health Benefits Of Resveratrol:

1️⃣Resveratrol stops #inflammation with a one-two knockout punch to stop your body from creating two different molecules known to trigger disease-causing internal inflammation—phospholipase D and sphingosine kinase.

2️⃣Resveratrol is also a potent #antioxidant found in certain fruits, vegetables, and cocoa in small amounts.

3️⃣Resveratrol And Inflammation: Sphingosine kinase and phospholipase D are, again, fatty molecules known to trigger inflammation. Chronic #inflammation is not a beneficial bodily response, and in fact has been linked to numerous chronic diseases including heart disease, %diabetes, #Alzheimer’s and #cancer.

4️⃣Resveratrol And #Oxidative-Stress: Resveratrol is unique among antioxidants because it can cross the blood-brain barrier to help protect your #brain and nervous system.

5️⃣Resveratrol Is #Anti-#Cancer! Resveratrol is the first natural substance which has solid evidence showing it blocks or stops many stages of cancer. Resveratrol not only helps to prevent cancer, but it’s also being proposed as an additional treatment. Resveratrol stops cancer in many diverse ways, from blocking #estrogenand #androgens to modulating genes. Research shows resveratrol has the ability to penetrate deeply into the center of a cell’s nucleus. When it does this, it then allows the #DNA to repair free radical damage that might otherwise contribute to #cancerous growth. In addition, resveratrol also helps cut down cancer cell reproduction, which reduces cancer cell growth. It also can make #cancerous tumors more vulnerable to #chemotherapy and #radiotherapy.

6️⃣Resveratrol was also found to alleviate many of the severe side effects associated with conventional cancer treatments including #fatigue, #anxiety, weight loss, #appetite loss, #depression, and #sleep disorders.

7️⃣Resveratrol Is Great For Your #Heart! Nitric oxide is a critical component of heart and #arterial function. Nitric oxide benefits include brain and #vascular health. It allows blood vessels to “relax,” which increases/improves/enhances blood flow. In short, resveratrol increases nitric oxide. Resveratrol also stops the proliferation of cells in blood vessels that narrow the arteries. It also is a bit of an anti-coagulant keeping blood cells from sticking together. Both of these functions are specifically important for the prevention of heart attacks. Resveratrol inhibits not only a clotting factor called thrombin but a slew of other stickiness-promoting factors. In addition, it down-regulates the production of CRP which is the bio-marker for coronary inflammation. It also raises high-density lipoprotein (#HDL) cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol. Additionally, it helps prevent artery damage caused by high levels of low-density lipoprotein (#LDL) cholesterol, the “bad” cholesterol. To re-iterate, it lowers blood pressure due to the generation of extra nitric oxide.

8️⃣The Really Cool Stuff- #Anti-#Aging Effects: As a dietary supplement, resveratrol can turn on or off a large number of genes that are essential for lifespan and quality of life. Resveratrol’s pattern of gene regulation parallels that of caloric restriction (CR), the only other intervention known to extend healthy lifespan.

9️⃣Resveratrol And Weight Loss: Going back to that SIRT1 pathway, one major function of SIRT1 is to prevent leptin resistance. Leptin is your principal hunger hormone which also regulates how efficiently your body stores fat. When you become #overweight, your leptin goes up, and your fat cells become resistant to its hunger-suppressing effects. Studies demonstrate resveratrol is one of the nutrients which will augment SIRT1 and hence reduce leptin resistance and assist with weight loss. In fact, SIRT1 knowledge is the basis for the trendy sirtfood diet plan.

🔟Blood Sugar Control: In humans, high-calorie “all-American” inflammatory diets damage insulin regulation and therefore control of blood sugar. This can lead to insulin resistance and then to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and fatty liver. In addition, the resveratrol group experienced a decline in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), which indicates improved blood sugar control. This supplement also helped with weight loss and suppression of food intake, implying even in this early study that this polyphenol might also help with weight management.

✅Topical Resveratrol And Skin Aging: In recent years, resveratrol, in particular, has become the subject of intense interest due to its powerful antioxidant and anti-aging properties. It appears that resveratrol exerts its potent antioxidant effects by (1) scavenging existing free radicals and (2) preventing their formation. Research specifically shows the antioxidant ability of topical resveratrol is very potent. In fact, it shows to be greater than that of vitamins E and C. One study demonstrated that resveratrol was 95% efficient at preventing the effects of harmful free radicals, compared to 65% for vitamin E and 37% for vitamin C. Hence, this magic polyphenol may turn out to be a great form of anti aging skin care.
