    Resveratrol and Beauty

    Resveratrol and Beauty

    It’s not a secret that beauty is a giant business. It’s full of creams, powders, brushes and all sorts of inventions made to cover up our skin.

    Just like the rest of our body, time plays havoc on our skin. Years of abuse from the sun and environmental toxins when combined with the normal damaging effects of aging can cause wrinkles, sagging and other beauty blemishes.

    I keep going back to the SIRT1 “Longevity Gene” because it does amazing things. It doesn’t target an organ or a system, it targets the cells. It reinforces them, strengthens them and repairs them. Well, this is true of the skin as well.

    Resveratrol strengthens the cells that make up our skin. It has the potential to reduce wrinkles and other effects of sagging on the skin by giving the cells within the skin the strength to maintain the firmness we have with youth.

    One particular product I recommend is ReserveAge Organics Collagen Booster. It combines the strengthening effects of Resveratrol with the collagen boosting powers of BioCell Collagen II. This product is one of the best skin supplements on the market because it improves the skin on two levels. BioCell Collagen II replaces collagen in the skin, which is lost with age, literally replenishing the very fabric of our skin. Resveratrol improves the strength and vitality of the skin. Put together they make a powerful package.

    Resveratrol's impact on weight loss

    One of the biggest questions I get from ReserveAge Organics customers is “Will Resveratrol help me lose weight?” Well, yes, sort of, but it’s complicated.

    One of the things we come across is people who are desperate to lose weight without wanting to change their lifestyle. Most have tried popular diets without luck. These usually don’t work, because the problem is that losing weight isn’t easy. However, I do give them a tip on how to make it easier. I recommend that the best diet is a combination of better eating, exercise and using Resveratrol.

    Proper diet and exercise are essential. Our diet literally creates the body we live in. If your diet is full of fats, artificial chemicals and other unhealthy products, then that is what your body will be made of. However, if your diet is full of nutrients and healthy ingredients, then your body will be much better off.

    We know that Resveratrol increases energy levels and endurance, Dr. Sinclair’s mice tests showed mice on Resveratrol could run twice as far. In addition, the cell improving powers of the SIRT1 “Longevity Gene” increases the efficiency of our cells throughout the body. It should translate into a small increase in metabolism.

    Most of us don’t like working out, especially if we are out of shape. It’s also pretty common to see out-of-shape individuals not putting as much effort as they need too into the work out. Resveratrol helps with this by improving your energy and endurance. Imagine that instead of just working out for 30 minutes and burning 200 calories, you were able to work out slightly harder for even just 35 minutes and burn 300 calories instead. That might not seem like much, but then take that across a whole week or month of working out. Resveratrol may give you the energy to have large results.

    The small increase to metabolism won’t give you any incredible results, but it will help burn a few extra calories. Every little bit helps.

    Resveratrol and Type II Diabietes

    Today ReserveAge Organics presents some of the information it has gathered on Resveratrol’s impact on Type 2 Diabetes.

    Diabetes Type 2 is one of the fastest growing, and most preventable, diseases in America . Diabetes is a disease wherein cells in the body stop taking in glucose. Glucose is brought into cells by a hormone called insulin and is then used as fuel for the cells. There are two types of diabetes.

    In Type 1, the cells that produce insulin stop working or die. Without insulin, glucose is unable to get into cells. This is often referred to as juvenile diabetes because it is most likely to occur during childhood. In Type 2, cells become resistant to insulin and allow less or none of it in. If the insulin can’t get in, then no glucose gets in and the cells starve.

    In 2007 alone, the American Diabetes Association estimated that 8% of the population had Type 2 Diabetes and another 20% of the entire population was at risk of developing it . The major cause of Type 2 Diabetes is a poor lifestyle. Improper diets high in calories and fat, combined with a lack of exercise, over-tax our systems by flooding our blood with glucose. Eventually, our cells develop a resistance to insulin.

    Type 2 Diabetes can be avoided or dealt with in early stages by reversing lifestyle trends that lead to it. Eating healthier foods and exercising, even a little each day, can have impressive results.

    In more severe cases, insulin-like medications are used in addition to lifestyle changes. These medications amplify the effects of insulin, bringing glucose into the cells. Unfortunately, these medications can be very dangerous —too little glucose is just as dangerous as too much and the medications can have unpleasant side effects.

    Earlier, we spoke of Dr. David Sinclair, the scientist at Harvard who studied Resveratrol in mice. One of his amazing discoveries was that mice who were being overfed a high fat diet and supplemented with Trans-Resveratrol experienced the same rate of diabetes as non-obese mice in the control group . This led Dr. Sinclair to begin a company based on treating diabetes using Trans-Resveratrol which was eventually bought by one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, GlaxoSmithKline.

    Research to uncover the exact mechanisms of action in Trans-Resveratrol is still being conducted. For now, it appears that Trans-Resveratrol, in large doses, decreases insulin resistance in cells and may even stop cells from becoming insulin resistant in the first place . Additionally, unlike many common diabetes medications which are riddled with side effects, Trans-Resveratrol doesn’t have any known side effects,

    The human trials so far have been going very well, yet they are still years from being completed. So while positive, it’s important to be cautiously optimistic until we see the final results. Unfortunately, many other drugs reach the same point as these trials only to fail before the research is completed.

    However, until then, we can watch these studies with a confident, hopeful outlook. The discovery of a safe treatment for perhaps the most pervasive disease in the world is a very exciting prospect indeed.

    Resveratrol and Mental Health

    Another installment of ReserveAge Organics series on Resveratrol and its potential benefits. Today we will discuss mental health and brain aging.

    One of the assumed facts of life is that as we grow older, our minds go. Typical issues can include trouble with memory, slower problem solving and mental tasks becoming increasingly difficult. While unpleasant, this is perfectly normal. Like every other part of our bodies, the cells and tissues of our brain become less effective in our old age. Cells are not repaired or replaced as they were when we were younger and with time it makes our brains function at a less than optimal level.

    At the same time a more insidious threat lies in front of some of us, Alzheimer’s. The exact cause of Alzheimer’s is unclear, all we can see is the effects it has on the brain. Alzheimer’s causes plaques to form on the tissues in the brain. These plaques interfere with nerves making them work inefficiently and potentially destroying them outright. As more nerves die; thinking, emotions and personality start to be impaired.

    Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that robs its victims of their intellect, personality and eventually their lives. In what may be even worse, Alzheimer’s is known for having a terrible psychological impact on the loved ones who care for its victims.

    Alzheimer’s typically does not affect those under the age of 65 and can take years and even decades to kill its victims. The early stages of the disorder are characterized by memory issues which can be easily mistaken for normal age-related mental impairment. The next stages involve dramatic decreases in mental abilities, at which point most people become aware that something is wrong. This can take the form of accelerated memory loss, uncontrolled emotions and erratic behavior. In the final stages the brain shuts down completely from the damage. Most people are not killed by Alzheimer’s but die from other illnesses due to their weakened bodies.

    Our memories and minds are not necessarily lost to us. Early research, including human tests, has suggested that Resveratrol may prevent loss of cognitive abilities. To be clear, none of these studies have found that it increases intellect, only that it may delay or stop loss of intellect and memory from aging and some other causes.

    In testing of mice, two effects have been noted. In testing of older mice on a diet consisting of Resveratrol, the mice were found to perform better at memory tasks. The brains of the mice were reviewed postmortem and it was found that the mice with a Resveratrol diet had more brain tissue than mice not on a Resveratrol diet. The mice not on a Resveratrol diet showed more age-related damage as well. A special mouse strain that has the characteristics of Alzheimer’s was tested on a Resveratrol diet and found to have a significant decrease in the number of plaques in their brains and showed improved memory function over the mice not on a Resveratrol diet.

    Human studies have also been promising. In one study people were given tests and then sent home with either Resveratrol or a placebo. They came back later and were asked to take a similar test, those who had been using Resveratrol performed better than those not using it.

    I feel that the most significant outcome of the studies of Resveratrol and Alzheimer’s are demonstrating the ability of Resveratrol to have some preventive benefits for those taking the supplement. I think there is some evidence that suggests Resveratrol may help those inflicted with Alzheimer’s fight the disease once it has started or at least reduce the symptoms of the disease by slowing the formation of plaques in the brain. With further research this means that some day despite a patient having the disease, the patient could live a much longer, healthier and mentally aware life as the effects of the disease are slowed or even stopped.

    I want to note again that most of these effects suggest that Resveratrol’s benefits in the mind are largely preventative. While triggering the SIRT1 “Longevity Gene” may boost the cells energy, improve nerve function, I feel the most dramatic results are going to be seen in people who have taken Resveratrol for an extended period of time and it well be found that these individuals have had little loss of their cognitive abilities as they reach old age. Despite its other health benefits, this is one of the main reasons that I advocate starting Resveratrol early, to prevent age-related damage to the mind and body.

    Monday Newsday

    I found a few interesting stories on a couple of different subjects that I thought I would share.

    First of all the Nobel prize in medicine has gone to a group of people researching Telomeres and Telemase. It's exciting research that discusses how aging can occur on a cellular level, specifically when dna splits as cells divide.

    Next the new wave of ECO dentistry. Now you can sit in the chair knowing that natural made products are causing you all the pain! I kid, I'm a big fan of dental health and good flossing.

    Finally for today, an interesting article suggesting that babies being born now will live to be 100 or older. This is based on life-span trends. That's pretty neat.

    Have a great monday from us at ReserveAge Organics

    Natural News

    I just wanted to let you guys know about a great article at on Resveratrol.

    Here's an excert

    (NaturalNews) If you're looking to prevent heart disease, you need to know about resveratrol. More compelling research on resveratrol is appearing around the world as word spreads about its natural healing potential. Here, we present a collection of powerful quotes about resveratrol and heart disease, documented in some of the best health books ever written. Read and remember these quotes, and feel free to share what you learn here with others who may also need this information.

    Hu zhang {Polygonum cuspidatum) is a Chinese herb (actually a weed) that is the world's richest source of resveratrol, the phytochemical also found in red wine that has generated a huge buzz for its disease-preventive actions in the body. A large body of research supports the role of resveratrol in resisting cancer, inflammation and heart disease. Resveratrol has been found to suppress the activation of inflammatory cytokines and COX-2, and shows special promise in preventing and slowing the progression of breast cancer. Resveratrol is also a potent antioxidant.

    White wine also contains resveratrol, but the seeds and skins are removed early in the white wine-making process, reducing the amount of resveratrol in the final product. Antioxidants like resveratrol are beneficial in preventing harmful elements in the body from attacking healthy cells. The antioxidant properties of resveratrol also offer certain health benefits in the prevention of heart disease and the reduction of lung tissue inflammation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
