Anti Aging News – Resveratrol Slows Aging

in Anti Aging

In latest anti aging news – Resveratrol, which is a plant extract, found in the skin of red grapes is reportedly capable of suppressing inflammation and fight the much dreaded signs of aging in humans.

You can find resveratrol in everything from grapes, wine, peanuts, blueberries, and cranberries. Dr. Husum Ghanim, PhD, from the University of Buffalo recently published a study which claims that the popular plant extract is shown to in fact prolong life and reduce those many signs of aging.

In this latest story for anti aging news, the good doctor has said that this extract was successful in reducing the aging process in roundworms, fruit flies and yeast. The reason for this is the gene that it contains which is know for longevity.

Dr. Dhanim and his colleagues say that they have identified resveratol as an agent that reduces inflammation in humans, which is a known cause for heart disease, strokes, and type 2 diabetes.

The study was conducted with 20 people who were put into two separate groups at random. One group received a placebo, and the other a supplement containing 40 milligrams of resveratrol. The volunteers were told to take the pills once a day for six weeks. Blood samples were taken at the start of the trails, and then at intervals of one, three, and six weeks on fasting.

The results of this study have shown that this natural extract suppresses the development of “free radicals”, which are unstable molecules which are known to cause oxidative stress and also release pro0-inflammatory substances in the blood.

People taking resveratol also display signs of the extract suppressing inflammatory protein tumor necrosis factor, and other compounds that tend to increase blood vessel inflammation while interfering with insulin action. This can result in insulin resistance and even a rise in diabetes.

While the study is being termed as promising, researcher Paresh Dandona, MD, PhD says that it definitely doesn’t eliminate the chance that something else in the extract was the reason for the anti-inflammatory effects.

In the time to come we will know more about this latest anti aging news story about how resveratol can help to ward off the signs of aging.
