By Donna Olmstead For the Journal Promising research appears to show that an antioxidant in wine and other foods such as peanuts, grapes, mulberries and blueberries improves many conditions associated with aging. But heading to the wine shop for cases of pinot noir or a health food store for supplements may be premature. Research seems to show the antioxidant called resveratrol might help with stroke, cancer, diabetes, other cardiovascular ailments and skin problems. David...

The sign next door at Jake and Earl's take- out grill read "Eat BBQ. Die Happy!" Although neither establishment survived long, the stark choice that together they presented- between a savory,...

SAN DIMAS, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- While the red wine molecule resveratrol (rez-vair-ah-trawl) has recently attracted scientific and public attention as a longevity molecule that allegedly mimics the effects of a calorie-restricted diet, the science surrounding this molecule has taken a dramatic turn in recent months, according to Bill Sardi, spokesperson for Longevinex(R) (long-jev-in-ex), a major brand resveratrol supplement.

RevGenetics announces the release of its latest science-based telomere health supplements, Astral Fruit. To understand what and how Astral Fruit works we can look at a recent study entitled: "Proteins induced by telomere dysfunction and DNA damage represent biomarkers of human aging and disease."(1) This August study is helping define what markers determine human biological age over chronological age. In this study, it was found that part of the answer to biological aging is in the end...

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...
