We all age. It’s life. To be exact our cells age. How could you possibly slower that process?
A harvard study about the French Paradox revealed a compound called “Resveratrol” that has been found in red wine, chocolate and other foods and even plants, that can help us stop the aging process of our cells. Resveratrol is activating a gene called sirtris.
Trivia: The people that discovered resveratrol called their company “sirtris”. By now it has been bought by GlaxoSmith Kline for about 720 million US-dollar. A nice sum for one of the most important discoveries since antibiotics.
Dr. Oz says if you don’t want to drink red wine to get your daily dose of resveratrol, you should get it from other sources like Concord grape juice or other dark grape juices.
However, Dr. Oz got some facts messed up. According to the harvard study you would have to drink 1000 bottles of wine per day to benefit from the resveratrol in it. Unthinkable. Instead you can get resveratrol pills. Resveratrol is being extracted from japanese knotweed. They usually sell small pills between 100 mg and 500 mg of trans-resveratrol.
