Quercetin fights off flu in mouse study Mice given quercetin, a naturally occurring substance found in fruits and vegetables, were less likely to contract the flu, according to a study published by The American Physiological Society. The study also found that stressful exercise increased the susceptibility of mice to the flu, but quercetin canceled out that negative effect. Quercetin, a close chemical relative of resveratrol, is present in a variety of fruits and vegetables, including red...

By Sandy Kleffman It's not exactly a fountain of youth, but a substance found in red wine, grapes and nuts can prevent many age-related problems in mice, an intriguing new study reveals. The substance, resveratrol, led to healthier hearts, better bone density, fewer cataracts and greater motor coordination in the animals. The findings, published online Thursday in Cell Metabolism, may increase interest in resveratrol as scientists seek to ward off the inevitable deterioration that comes...

RevGenetics, a supplement company and distributor of the herbal supplement Resveratrol, recently announced the launch of a new product: Micronized Trans-Resveratrol. Micronized Resveratrol is small enough to pass through the body's tiny mucous membranes, and contains properties not found in normal Resveratrol. A particle size between one to four microns is smaller than what most water filters can stop, and one micron is 100 times smaller than the width of a human hair -- and easily...

A British pharmaceutical company says it has begun human trials of a compound that mimics the effects of a drug found in red wine. Researchers have found that mice given resveratrol, which is found on the skin of red grapes, had stronger bones, better balance and coordination and less heart disease. But humans need to take large doses -- the equivalent of 1,000 bottles of wine a day -- to get those benefits. Sirtris Pharmaceuticals says it has found a compound of two drugs that bring the...

By The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) - Here's a couch potato's dream: What if a drug could help you gain some of the benefits of exercise without working up a sweat? Scientists reported Thursday that there is such a drug - if you happen to be a mouse. Sedentary mice that took the drug for four weeks burned more calories and had less fat than untreated mice. And when tested on a treadmill, they could run about 44 percent farther and 23 percent longer than untreated mice. Just how well...

Advances in chemistry can be used to add otherwise insoluble compounds like the dietary supplement co-enzyme Q10 into water, a U.S. researcher said. Bruce Lipshutz, a professor of chemistry at University of California, Santa Barbara, said CoQ10 is a compound that cells synthesize in every cell, but while the body produces its own CoQ10, that production decreases with age. CoQ10 -- much of which is in the mitochondria of our cells -- is essential for cellular respiration and adenosine...

It has long been known that a calorie restricted diet can help prevent the conditions frequently associated with aging. However, many doctors and scientists are reluctant to recommend a caloric intake as low as is required as this may also lead to inadequate nutrition which, in turn, can cause other problems. Recent research indicates that anti-aging supplements such as resveratrol may offer the same benefits, without the risks. Feelgoodforlife.com offers additional information on resveratrol...

Laboratory research shows that resveratrol suppresses the abnormal cell formation that leads to most types of breast cancer, U.S. researchers say. Lead author Eleanor G. Rogan, a professor in the Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer and Allied Diseases at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and colleagues measured the effect of resveratrol -- found in red wine and grape juice -- on cellular functions known to contribute to breast cancer. The researchers found that resveratrol...
